The Nintendo Switch has been out for over four years, has two models already and a third on the way (Switch OLED), but it’s still lacking in the home media department. Amazingly, the Switch is missing the most ubiquitous streaming service: Netflix. Nintendo has never commented on the omission, despite hosting apps for Hulu, Funimation, and YouTube on the eShop. And with Netflix now gone from the Wii U and 3DS, Netflix isn’t supported on any Nintendo console–at least not officially. If you’re dead set on watching Netflix on your Nintendo Switch, it’s still possible to do so with a workaround. Here are the steps you need to take to watch Netflix on Nintendo Switch.
Disclaimer: Getting Netflix on your Nintendo Switch requires you to install unofficial software, which comes with risks such as bricking your system or getting banned from online services by Nintendo. Additionally, this method won’t work for all Switch users, including those who have a Switch Lite.
How to watch Netflix on Nintendo Switch
The only way to get Netflix running on Nintendo Switch is to add Android OS to your Switch. With Android OS, you’ll have access to the Google Play Store, which obviously opens the door to installing Netflix as well as Android games and other apps.
