Nintendo's Priorities for Switch Don't Include Video, Says Netflix

GameMaker Studio 2 adds Nintendo Switch support

How The Switch Became A Haven For Indie Games

The Nintendo Switch will automatically download the firmware 5.0.0 firmware while it is connected online.

The Nintendo Switch is now the hottest thing in the world, with a number of hybrid functions. The switch still doesn't have Netflix app for some reason. The Switch offers both handheld play and home console play.

This update also fixes the problem that was hiding some older play activity data, and it adds a notification to let you know when pre-ordered games have unlocked. It is like a ideal media player for all, still, it does not have Netflix app in it.

Now, Scott Mirer, Netflix's vice president of Device Partner Ecosystem, has shared some more details during a press Q&A panel in Silicon Valley on why the company has yet to strike a deal with Nintendo.

TDP candidates file nominations for Rajya Sabha elections
A businessman and party financier, Ramesh, is now a member of the Upper House, representing Telangana since the state bifurcation. In Rajya Sabha, the situation was no different.

Mirer seems to be suggesting that the onus lies with Nintendo to get Netflix onto Switch and that Netflix is ready and willing to try and make it happen.

But on the other hand, it's understandable that Nintendo is focusing for now on what makes the Switch actually great: excellent games.

"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".

Even still, the Switch has already proven to be a sales hit, so perhaps Nintendo could allot a little bit of time to integrate Netflix into its platform. The Switch also won some awards for the game like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2 and many more.
