Hollywood studio thinks Wii will stream video this year

Posted on Monday, March 16 2009 @ 00:28:06 CET by


Curt Marvis, president of digital media for Lionsgate, expects the Nintendo Wii console may get video streaming support this year. Marvis believes the Wii is a perfect platform for digital distribution:
Nintendo is about several months before selling its 50 millionth Wii video game console and this fact is a hard one to ignore not only for publishers of games, but also to movie studios, who are very interested in maximizing Internet-connected set-top-boxes (STB) capable of streaming their videos. Obviously, Wii is a perfect STB candidate and Lionsgate, a large Hollywood movie studio, understand this.

“The thing that is clearly a force in digital are the game devices. I think when we see the Wii come into the market with the ability to stream movies, which I think is maybe going to happen as soon as this year, I think that’s going to be a big marketplace for digital distribution,” said Curt Marvis, president of digital media for Lionsgate, in an interview with Variety.com web-site.
