Netflix has sent out an email to their customers informing them that the Netflix app on Wii will cease after January 31, 2019.
According to the email, this is not something Netflix decided on – Nintendo has decided to cease all video streaming services for Wii, such as Hulu and CrunchyRoll, after January 31 as well.
Here’s the full blurb from Netflix:
Unfortunately, Nintendo will suspend all video streaming services on Wii—including the Netflix Channel—after January 31, 2019.
We hope you’ll soon enjoy an even better Netflix experience with additional features on a supported device. Please visit netflix.com/wii for our device list.
Hopefully Netflix will use this as an excuse to release an app on Nintendo Switch, just like what Youtube did this morning.
