What is the difference between a Nintendo Account and a Nintendo Network ID?

A Nintendo Account enables participation in the My Nintendo rewards programme and purchases of digital games for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U from Nintendo eShop using a PC or a smartphone (such services to be launched in March 2016).

A Nintendo Network ID is required to use the online services offered on the Nintendo 3DS system and Wii U console.
