Netflix Gets Wii U Update, All Characters Allowed for Passwords

Nintendo is promoting the new console as an entertainment platform

Netflix, the video streaming company, and hardware maker Nintendo announce that they have updated the service on the new Wii U home console in order to allow gamers to use passwords that have the @ symbol.

According to Joystiq, the two companies say that all those users who previously had problems accessing Netflix should be able to log in without a hitch.

Soon after the Wii U was launched, players discovered that some of their passwords were not accepted on Netflix and, after contacting customer service, they found out that the culprit was the @ symbol and that they needed to use the official website to change them.

Nintendo has been touting the multimedia abilities of the new Wii U and the company needed to move fast to make sure that Netflix was available to the entire user base.
