While many people are likely still waiting for the popular streaming app to appear on the Switch, Netflix has been available on the Wii U for years. Today, the app received an update, which should download automatically. There are no documented patch notes so it’s not fully clear what this update changes, though it’s likely nothing major. Anyway, it’s good to see that Netflix is still supporting their app on Wii U for those who still use Nintendo’s previous home console as their streaming device of choice.

A tweet from Netflix spread online after one person was told that there are no plans for the service on Switch. However, a spokesperson has now offered a bit of a different statement.
Netflix’s official comment is the following: “We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don’t have definitive plans to share at this time.” We’re also hearing that Netflix will send an update with a similar message on @Netflixhelps.
You’d have to think that, in due time, Netflix will land on Switch. It’s just a matter when.
“Currently no plans” for Netflix on Switch

Multimedia and streaming apps have been on the top of many people’s Switch wishlists. Last year, NicoNico was made available on the Switch in Japan, followed by Hulu in North America. Netflix seems like an obvious candidate for the system – after all, it even hit the Wii U. However, it seems like that won’t be happening any time soon. Responding to a request for a Switch version on Twitter, the Netflix customer service account stated that there are “currently no plans for Netflix on Nintendo Switch”.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that the streaming service will never be on the system – but it does seem like it’ll be a while until it happens.
