Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was asked during E3 2018 about Netflix appearing on the platform. Switch owners are still waiting for the app to arrive on the system and it seems if we want that particular app, or any other app, then we will need to contact the publisher.
“For those types of questions, we have to refer you to the folks at Netflix.” But then he added, “What we said when we launched Nintendo Switch was that we wanted to have a gaming-first platform and that’s what we’ve created. And that’s what enabled us in the first 12 months in the United States to be the best-selling home console in the history of video games.
“Right now, we enable Hulu on the platform, we’ve said that other services will come in due time. For us, we want to make sure that continue driving the install base for Nintendo Switch, continue to have great games for the platform.”
He concluded, “In terms of what’s next on the streaming side, you’re gonna have to talk to those individual providers in terms of where they stand and what they’re working on.”
