Netflix on Wii U - How We Built It

Netflix on Wii U launched at the same time as the console in November, that's probably not news to you. What you may not know is that this was the first time we built a Netflix experience for a brand new game console. It was also the first time we worked on a second screen experience, for the Wii U GamePad.

The story of how we built Netflix for Wii U gives some fun insight on how we do things at Netflix. We recently provided a look behind the scenes to EP Daily (clip below) and Time Technologizer's Harry McCracken. We also shot our own video explaining how Netflix on Wii U works (also below). Finally, UI Engineer Joubert Nel has written about building Netflix on Wii U on our Tech Blog
