I found a way to watch live TV on the Wii U. (via TVcatchup)

Below is for UK (unless you use a VPN or DNS redirect service)

1, On Wii U open browser, go to
http://ipad.tvcatchup.com or http://iphone.tvcatchup.com
Depending on the interface you prefer. I recommend ipad interface.
2, Signup and Login.
3, Click channel and watch.

This works because it a HTML5 stream, and should work with any ipad/iphone compatible streaming web sites.

Some people play Wii U on monitors or live in a college dorm without a cable box/satellite/whatever so the only way they can "watch TV" is through online services

My family has figured this out yet, so thank you. I will tell this to then once my Wii U is no longer in storage.

Currently Playing: Metroid Prime 3, Zelda Twilight Princess, & Metroid Other M
Hyped for: Sonic Lost World, Super Smash Bros 3DS, & Dream Team

Even though I have beaten many of the games I'm still playing, I play them not to win, but to have fun.
