When the Nintendo Switch was officially launched, we all wondered if it would do other things besides play games, like the Xbox One and PS4. Would it be able to stream Netflix content for instance?
Last year, Nintendo stated that Netflix for the Switch would eventually come to the console. Well, we are still waiting.
Now it seems that our hopes have since been dashed. According to a Netflix customer service rep, there are no plans for Netflix on the Switch. This confirmation comes from a tweet in response to users asking when it would arrive for the console. The rep stated that the company currently has no plans to make that happen. Sorry Switch users.
The rumor from last year stated that the Netflix app for the Switch was “ready”, and that it was just waiting for Nintendo to give it the greenlight. Perhaps both companies could not work out a deal. Switch users will just have to wait and see if and when it arrives on their console. Right now it looks like Hulu is the first and only video streaming service available on the Switch. Hopefully Nintendo fans can get more added to the lineup very soon.
