Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and other video streaming apps are not currently offered on the Switch. It seems however, that’s it’s only a matter of time before they come.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stated in an interview with The Washington Post, that the company is talking with video providers about supporting Switch. According to Reggie their apps “will come in time”.
In his own words:
“What I would say is this: We built the Nintendo Switch to be a world-class gaming device, meaning we want you first and foremost to play games on the system and have an incredibly fun experience.
We’re talking to a range of companies about other services, companies like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon — things that will come in time. In our view, these are not differentiators. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play. And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform.”
Well there you have it. Streaming services are coming to Switch. We just need to wait a little while longer.
