When the Nintendo Switch launched last March, the console had no video streaming apps, such as Hulu, Amazon, or Netflix, for players to use. Of course, Hulu launched in November of last year, which led to speculation on when we might see other streaming apps on the Switch. Yesterday, it seems we got some clarification on Netflix’s stance on the matter: according to a tweet, having since been deleted, there are no plans to bring Netflix to the Switch, yet.
However, in statement to Polygon, a Netflix spokesperson also said that, “We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don’t have definitive plans to share at this time.” Essentially, there’s still a shot for the streaming giant to land on the newest Nintendo console, albeit with no time-table for release. The company is keeping talks open with Nintendo, and one can only hope the two parties could come to an agreement. After all, who wouldn’t want to grab a few Power Moons in Super Mario Odyssey, only then to turn on an episode or two of Friends to kick back? We here at Nintendeal would be 100% in. What about you? What streaming service would you like to see make its way to the Switch?
