NEW YORK (AP) -- Some of the entertainment features on Nintendo's new Wii U won't be available when the game machine goes on sale Sunday.

   Nintendo didn't give a reason for the delay in Friday's news release.

   The new service, Nintendo TVii, promises to take into account all the ways users watch movies, TV shows and sports. If you like the TV show "Modern Family," for example, it will present you with a list of the show's episodes gathered from available sources, whether that's Hulu, Netflix or traditional cable TV.

   The free feature was supposed to be available on the launch date in the U.S. and Canada. Nintendo now says the service will be activated in December.

   The Wii U is the first major game console to launch in six years.
