New Netflix Update Adds Profiles for Wii U

Netflix Wii UThe Wii U is home to some truly amazing games. But as a set-top box, Nintendo’s console lags far behind the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Most owners would probably tell you they don’t even care; again, it’s all about those first-party games. But if you’re a frequent Netflix user, you’ll be pretty glad to hear that the Wii U Netflix app now offers the same experience you’ll find on other home theater boxes.

Wii U users can now create and sign into individual profiles — something other Netflix devices have had for a long, long time. The entire user interface has been refreshed and is far more responsive and Netflix on Wii U also now supports autoplay. So if you’re binging on a show, the next episode will begin playing automatically. Netflix’s resume function is far more reliable on Wii U with this update. These are things you or I might take for granted watching on a smartphone or different device, but Wii U owners have had to endure a subpar experience until now. Oh, and watching shows and movies on the console’s gamepad? That’s been improved, too.
