Nintendo Switch fans have been hungry for video-on-demand services since the beginning of the console’s lifecycle.
Scott Mirer, Netflix vice president of device partner ecosystem, told a press Q&A panel at Silicon Valley the company is still looking into the possibility of supporting the Switch, but ultimately it all depends on Nintendo.
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. Whether that changes over time, we have a great relationship with them and look at the possibility of [supporting] the Switch. We each have opportunity cost around that, but at some point, it might happen.
