Nintendo Wii U to Receive Streaming News App “Watchup”

Nintendo’s Wii U will be getting a new app called “Watchup,” a streaming news app that was created back in 2012.

The app takes advantage of the Gamepad screen by letting Watchup users select and read articles on the controller screen related to the video they are watching on the TV screen in real time. Users can also toggle between streaming new footage on the TV or Gamepad screen.

Currently the app garners news from sources such as Bloomberg News, PBS Newshour, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Fusion, Sky News, Vox and more
