The Nintendo Switch is a popular gaming console developed by Nintendo, released worldwide on March 3, 2017. Since its release, Nintendo Switch owners have been hoping for a Netflix app for watching movies or shows over the internet. Although both Hulu and YouTube have landed on the console successively, the streaming giant -Netflix - is still painfully absent in the Nintendo e-Shop.

In this article, we’re going to show you the reason why the Netflix is still not available on the Switch and how to watch movies and shows from Netflix on this console.

Nintendo Switch users who eager for an official Netflix app will have to wait. As Netflix executive Scott Mirer had said the video streaming service won’t be coming to the Nintendo Switch quite yet because Nintendo’s priority is putting games first.

“In the case of the Switch, they [Nintendo] were very focused at launch not on video-use cases, but on gaming cases, video was not a priority for them. Whether that changes over time, we have a great relationship with them and look at the possibility of [supporting] the Switch. We each have opportunity cost around that, but at some point, it might happen.” Mirer said.

It’s unclear when a Netflix app may roll out for the Switch– but we've heard multiple rumors regarding the release of Netflix on Switch means that it could potentially happen in the future.

Currently, Netflix is only supported by Nintendo 3Ds family including Nintendo 2DS, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL. And, Netflix Streaming on the Nintendo 3DS family is only available in the U.S.A and Canada.

The Nintendo Switch does not have a Netflix app. Does that mean we are unable to watch Netflix videos on Nintendo Switch? Of course not! Even if we can't directly watch Netflix videos on Nintendo Switch through the Netflix App, we can still play Netflix movies and TV shows on it. What we need is just a Netflix Video Downloader.

This tool is very straightforward and gives you a hassle-free experience because of how effortless it is to use. Additionally, it also provides a decent quality output, while keeping multiple audio tracks and subtitles for Netflix Standard and Premium users. Moreover, this program also supports extracting and saving subtitles from Netflix video as a separate .srt file, so that you can use it outside of Netflix.
