TV remote Wii U controller universal mode

Use the Wii U Controller as a TV Remote! Change channels, change volume, power on and off, etc.!

TV Remote Wii U Controller? YUP. That is not a typo. You can use the Wii U Controller to change your TV’s channels, interact with your cable box, turn the volume to your TV up and down, etc.!

The Wii U will include a Television mode (activated by pressing the “TV” button on the bottom of the Wii U Controller) that allows the Wii U Controller to be programmed to control your TV just like a Universal Remote! All of these features will appear on the Wii U’s touchscreen, with onscreen buttons to press to change the volume, change the channels, turn the TV off, etc.

Very, VERY cool!

This video shows off the new Wii U Universal TV Remote mode at 6:15 into the Nintendo Direct E3 2012 Pre-E3 Conference video.

      Sorry I don’t own a Wii U yet myself, so not sure on that one!
