Nintendo Wii gets Sesame Street episodes, more

As promised, Nintendo will soon begin offering a paid video service in its home market of Japan. While free content has been available in Japan since May, users will now be able to access popular TV programs that include Sesame Street, Pocket Monsters, Pokemon and Nintendo's own educational programming.

The pay-per-view service also includes animated episodes from Disney and Warner Entertainment, along with 13 other content providers. By December, about 250 different programs should be on offer, while 2010 will see the choices swell to more than 1,000. Prices for each episode range from the equivalent of $0.11 to $11.

Despite this report, there is still no indication that Nintendo plans to bring the video on demand service to North America. [via CrunchGear]
