In an announcement at both TVii’s official support site and its Miiverse page, Nintendo confirmed that TVii, a TV Guide-style interface meant to help users sort through live and streaming video listings, would no longer function after August 11. “Every service has a life cycle, and it is time to focus our resources on other projects,” the support site’s FAQ read; we suppose that means Nintendo thinks a full three years is pushing it in terms of “life cycle.” – Sam Machkovech, Ars Technica
