Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has seemingly hinted of Netflix support for Wii U, saying that the streaming movie service working on the console is “possible.”

When asked whetever it was possible to stream video from the console to the tablet, Fils-Aime told Forbes: “The messaging comes right from the console. So the programming would need to originate off the console.”

And on the subject of Netflix itself, he added: “Theoretically, that’s possible.”

He stresses that whatever content that could come from the service would need to be streamed from the console.

Netflix is already on the original Wii, with support also coming to 3DS, as announced back at GDC.
