Ten years ago, Netflix reported that 25% of its subscribers stream programs and movies on the Nintendo Wii. But the companies̵

7; ten-year relationship could end this year. According to a Nintendo support page, Netflix will stop working on the Wii U and 3DS after June 30, and the Nintendo Switch still lacks a dedicated Netflix app.

Nintendo removed Netflix from the 3DS and Wii U eShop on December 31, 2020. People with the app can enjoy it until June 30, and people who have used the app in the past can still re-download the app from the eShop.

The end of Netflix support on 3DS and Wii U should come as no surprise. Anyone with a smartphone can access Netflix on the go, and the rise of low-cost smart TVs and streaming sticks are replacing the need to stream from a game console. Still, the absence of Netflix on the Switch is odd as competitors like Hulu have Switch apps.

Netflix’s debut on Nintendo consoles began in 2010 with the use of its own Netflix Wii disc. A year later, the company launched a Netflix app on the Wii Shop Channel and the 3DS eShop. The Wii U got its official Netflix app with portable GamePad support in 2012. As of now, only modified Nintendo Switch consoles can run Netflix.
