All other videos you seem to be able to watch on the TV or TV and Pad, so I'm sure this will be the same. Would be a ridiculous missed opportunity if not. The ability to be able to stick videos on the TV and carrying on browsing is pretty neat.

Hopefully this will come soon as Amazon's video service is live in the US. Just need iplayer now and then maybe 4od. I also recently subscribed to NowTV for films, which is more expensive but actually has a decent selection - not sure if I'll keep subscribing past the trial, but it would be good - can't see it any time soon though and as it uses Silverlight (like lovefilm), won't be able to watch it on the browser.

If you're on Wii U and you have the Wii Mode for backwards compatability, can you use this app (or Netflix, or iPlayer) on Wii U while you wait for the 'proper' Wii U version?
