Rumor has it that the Nintendo Switch may have a Netflix app sometime in the near future. This is coming from a GoNintendo user, who gave the site this information:
“According to a Netflix customer service rep, Netflix is “locked and loaded” for Switch. Apparently Netflix has been trying to get permission to launch their app on Switch, and as soon as Nintendo gives the go-ahead, the app can be added to the eShop. As of right now, Netflix is just waiting for Nintendo to give the green light.”
Fans of the Switch have certainly been hoping for such an app (any streaming app really) to be a reality and for good reason. The portability of Nintendo’s most recent console makes it a prime candidate for watching videos on the go. Nintendo has said in the past that they want fans to know that the Switch is first and foremost a gaming device. However, they’ve certainly not ruled out having streaming apps in the future.
Keep in mind all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt! It wouldn’t be the first time someone received bad information, and nothing has been verified by either Nintendo or Netflix.
