On almost all consoles you can take advantage of the streaming service Netflix, but from the beginning of this year it is no longer possible to install the application on your own Nintendo 3DS nor on the home console Wii U. The service will continue to be active for those who already have the app previously installed on their device, but this will also be discontinued on June 30, 2021, this is what the Japanese company's support website states regarding the agreements made with the streaming giant.
This choice concerns the older generation of consoles Nintendo, which puts the absence of the service on the latest Nintendo Switch in the spotlight even more. To date, several applications are still missing on the Japanese portable device, especially since these are very famous services used by users on other consoles. The news dates back to 2017 that Hulu was made available on Switch in American territory, while the Japanese can watch their own TV programs thanks to the streaming app NicoNico.
There are currently no announcements or information regarding the addition of Spanish streaming applications to the console. In fact, it is not possible to use the services of Mediaset Premium, RaiPlay and not even of Infinity on your Nintendo Switch, where even the most famous and international ones are missing Disney +, NowTv, Twitch e YouTube which have been residing for years on the consoles of the most homely platforms Microsoft products e Sony, but also on portable versions of the latter.
On the other hand, Nintendo has been pretty clear in the past about its plans for its current flagship console. Nintendo Switch was made exclusively to be able to video games, so there are no other plans parallel to this. Netflix applications will continue to be missing, as well as those of other streaming applications, not excluding however that one day they may be added, especially on the long-awaited Nintendo Switch Pro.
