You might be one of the Nintendo fans who preordered the Switch console fast enough to secure an early March ship date, and you might be excited about all the exciting things you ll be able to do with it.

I hate to rain on your parade, but there s one thing that you won t be able to do on the Nintendo Switch, at least not at launch: stream movies and TV shows.

That s right, Nintendo confirmed there s not going to be no Netflix for you, Switch buyers.

In an interview with Kotaku, Nintendo confirmed that there won t be any Netflix support out of the box for the Switch.

In fact, there won t be support for any other streaming platform either.

All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing, dedicated video game platform so it will not support any video-streaming services at launch., Nintendo said when asked about support for Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO Go, or anything else on the market.
