Nintendo’s Switch won’t have video streaming apps at launch

In a long list of questions and answers — most of which Nintendo declined to comment on — the company also revealed that the system won’t support video streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Video. Or at least, not on March 3rd. “All 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,” a spokesperson said. They quickly added, however, that such apps are “being considered for a future update.” While a disappointment to some, it follows the trend set by the Wii U, which never really thrived as a video streaming set-top box. – Nick Summers, Engadget
