Netflix For The Wii U Adds New Features Like Individual Profiles

While the Wii U is among our favorite ways to game, its Netflix experience has been lagging behind a bit. New features like (optional) autoplaying episodes, switching between individual profiles and easy resuming just never came to the console, until now. A new update went out last night -- just in time for the debut of the excellent-looking Narcos series -- that should bring things up to par with the rest, however some gamers on NeoGAF are still looking for the ability to control it with the Pro Controller instead of Nintendo's GamePad. Also, the new app defaults to streaming video to your GamePad instead of leaving it for information and navigation, so keep that in mind if you're checking out a few episodes in between rounds of Splatoon this weekend.
