Japanese 3DS Television Service To Be Cancelled
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Itsu no Ma ni Terebi no more
Since June last year 3DS owners in Japan have had access to Itsu no Ma ni Terebi, a video service that has produced regular and exclusive content via SpotPass. Like the former Wii service Wii no Ma, Nintendo has decided to take the service off the air.
In the past year the channel has offered content from Fuji Television and Nippon Television, such as animal footage, magic classes and a show called Idoling Sumo 3DS, which involved a famous girl-band taking on a variety of challenges. Nintendo has said that over one million people have accessed the service since it launched, but it will close on 20th June, just short of one full year on the platform.
Do any of you own a Japanese 3DS, and will you miss Itsu no Ma ni Terebi?
