Netflix services come to an end on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U on 30th June

Nintendo has announced on its official website that support for the popular video streaming app, Netflix, will end on 30th June this year for both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U platforms. The Netflix application became unavailable to download from 31st December, but for those who already have the app installed will be able to enjoy it for a little while longer. If you’ve downloaded it previously but deleted it, Nintendo is allowing users in this situation to re-download the Netflix app if they wish.

Starting Dec 31st, 2020, the Netflix app will no longer be available for new users to download from Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console or Nintendo 3DS family of systems. During that time, it will be possible for existing users to re-download these applications. Service for existing users will continue until June 30th, 2021. Thank you to everyone who enjoyed Netflix on these platforms over the years.

    1. It doesn’t. I can’t remember the exact date but I bet there’s an article on this website about it.

  1. Huh. And yet YouTube is still available on Wii U with no signs that it’s going down.

    Good, since that’s my primary use for my Wii U now.

    Did anyone even still use Netflix on Wii U? I sure didn’t.

  2. How long before the Wii U becomes a pure paper weight, excluding those games, namely SEGA titles, that won’t see the light of day on the Switch.

    Not to mention the modding scene (if any).

      1. I used to organize smash tourneys in my community so I knew hundreds of people who had Wii U / 3DS. Two out of these downloaded the Netflix app just to try it but did not continue using it because hello the a smart phone / laptop runs netflix way better.

        1. Well before I upgraded to my Roku tv (against my will, thanks to my Element tv suddenly not working correctly), this was all I could rely on after the Wii.
