LOVEFiLM is now available on your Wii, which means you can stream thousands of great films & TV shows if you have i. a Wii, ii. a LOVEFiLM subscription, and iii. a broadband internet connection.
If you’re not sure how to connect your Wii to the internet, our instructional videos will take you through the process, step-by-step (depending on whether you have a wired or wireless internet connection).
Once you’re online, start the Wii Shop Channel and then go to Wii Channels to find LOVEFiLM. The application is free to download and install, so you can start the process immediately.
When LOVEFiLM has been installed on your Wii, you’ll find our logo on your Wii Menu every time you turn on your Wii.
We’ve designed the application specifically for the Wii, so you can find plenty of fantastic family films & TV shows using either the pointer or the directional-pad on your Wii Remote.
Nothing is downloaded – all titles begin streaming as soon as you press the “Play” button (you don’t have to wait for the whole thing to download) and you can jump to any point in the film or episode at any time.
And if you started watching a LOVEFiLM title on a different device, your Wii application will remember where you stopped, and will ask if you want to watch from the beginning or resume from where you left off.
We strongly recommend that you have a broadband internet connection speed of at least 2Mbps for the best possible viewing experience (Wii does not support HD playback, of course, so it’s SD titles across the board).
You can browse for movies & TV shows in several ways – by genre, or by using our hand-crafted collections, or by looking through the unique LOVEFiLM Picks and Most Viewed lists. You can also search our catalogue by title or actor/director.
LOVEFiLM on the Wii has all the great titles that you’ve come to associate with LOVEFiLM, and it’s really easy to use too. Happy Instant Wii viewing!
