NOA bossman Reggie Fils-Amie has told Kotaku that if Nintendo decides to bring a streaming video service to Wii, it will not be Netflix per say.
“We have nothing to announce [as] a partnership from an online streaming standpoint,” he said. “Should we go down that path we will do something different than our competitors.”
The Wii-no-Ma video download service was launched in Japan May 1.

Nintendo’s Wii-no-Ma service launched in Japan today, and YouTube user NintenDaan has uploaded a first look video which we’ve posted after the break.
The video shows how to use the service on your Wii to send a video to a special App on your DSi.
Looks like it takes bit to do, but still, it’s pretty nifty.

Satoru Iwata gave a lovely speech yesterday, and in it he stated that the Wii-no-Ma Channel is “under planning in the future” for overseas.
“Wii-no-Ma service is available only in Japan at the start, but the overseas deployment is under planning in the future,” he said.
Available for free from the Wii Shopping Channel, the video service offers original programming and promotional videos from different partner companies.
Wii-no-Ma debuted in Japan today.

We just received a 3,500+ announcement on the Japanese launch of Wii-no-Ma, Wii’s video download service. It goes live tomorrow.
The spiel outlines what Wii-no-Ma is, how it works, and also details Dokodemo Wii-no-Ma, the DSi software that allows you to play Wii-no-Ma videos on the move.
You can watch the entire announcement in a Japanese language video here.
The whole thing’s in English after the break. There’s no word on whether or not this is going to happen anywhere outside Japan, but the fact we’ve been sent this at all, in English, may give a clue.

According to Andriasang, Wii’s video download service – dubbed Wii no Ma – will launch on May 1 in Japan.
The venture’s a collaboration between Nintendo and Japanese media firm Dentsu, with the latter Dentsu apparently handling negotiation for original video content.
As you can see on the service’s official page, the service takes the form of a family living room, complete with virtual TV.
Click on the TV, download video. You can transfer video to DSi for movies on the go.
