Wii Gets Downloadable TV, Movies

Nintendo's "Wii no Ma" service in Japan got a whole lot more interesting over the weekend, with the previously ad-only channel expanding to include user-paid movies, TV shows and anime.

Think of it as the Zune Marketplace, or the PlayStation Video Delivery Service, only for the Wii. In Japan.

Some of the studios signed up for "Theatre no Ma" include Warner, Pokemon, Disney (including Sesame Street stuff), J League soccer, THK and TV Asahi.

Pricing starts out at around 100 Points for a TV show rental.
