The Nintendo Switch Is Getting Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Apps

The Nintendo Switch Is Getting Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Apps
Until Nintendo launches the Switch‘s virtual console and releases some more noteworthy titles, the Japanese gaming giant’s latest console is good for pretty much one thing: playing Zelda. Soon, however, Switch owners will have more to do with the device than navigate Link through Breath of the Wild. In an interview with The Washington Post, Nintendo of America head honcho Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that Netflix, Hulu and Amazon will all come to the device — eventually. While Fils-Aime is right that the Switch’s gameplay differentiates it from the likes of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, its lack of features has been a major gripe among buyers — and, arguably, a deciding factor for many who have chosen not to pick up the console. That lack of apps isn’t slowing the Switch down too much, though: despite being released far outside of the usual holiday launch window, the Switch racked up the highest sales numbers of any Nintendo console for its first two days of availability.
