Why cant I use the RemotePlus for Netflix?

I been waiting for this and Nintendo hasnt done a thing...

I just want to point at the movie I want and play it.........not have to hold a freakin screen on my hands and eat up battery life while I watch a movie (dont say to turn off the gamepad because if I have to pause the movie, I'll have to go through the on off process all over again)

Netflix app is made by Netflix, not Nintendo.

That you are blaming Nintendo for something that isn't their fault. The app is made by Netflix, hence it's something you blame Netflix for.

So Nintendo doesnt have anything to do with the fact Netflix can be browsed with the gamepad and not the RemotePlus?

Netflix screwed the pooch with their app. It looks like they put in the lease amount of effort necessary. Shame.

On the bright side, the Amazon app is much better.

Well N could have refused it. But then we wouldn't have Netflix at all. How is it difficult to understand that Netflix made the app?

So ur saying Netflix doesnt want the RemotePlus being used for their app?

How do people use Netflix on the Wii then ?

What? Netflix made the Wii U app. They left out Wii remote support. So we can assume they didn't want it in if that makes it easier for you to understand.

And people use the Wii remote on the Wii. How is that relevant?
