What we say?

We are not sure who to blame or the non-existence of Netflix on the Nintendo switch. Netflix is gaining huge popularity and maybe it is complacent. In this case, the reason is Netflix.

But it can be a Nintendo switch as well. Maybe the switch wants to decide and is too restricted about which one to install and which one not.

Or, it can be a mix of two. Both can be responsible. But on thing is for sure, Nintendo switches users want Netflix on the switch.

If you ask us, we feel the same. A switch doesn’t allow an app like Netflix makes no sense.
