    The first Multi Media app to come on Nintendo Switch is NicoNico which is coming to Japan July 13. This is just the first step for multiMedia support on the Switch. Hopefully, we will see apps like Youtube soon. Since the Switch is region free everyone can download it with a Japanese account. This is completely free as well. In case you want to know what this is here is a trailer for it here UPDATE: It's out and it seems to run extremely smooth on the Switch and the GUI works great imo. I can only hope youtube runs this smooth whenever it comes out.

    |Interesting, why NicoNico of all the things that could have arrived first. Hopefully we get youtube/netflix soon enough then, as I can see people being quite annoyed that yet again, Japan gets preference first over everyone else.

    From the looks of it, I'm not really sure. I guess it depends on if it's just gaming or everything else too

    How did you do that without changing your account to Japanese? I thought that would change the menu language lol.

    It is bundled with a quite restrictive version of a browser, if go to the help menu you can access that, but anything that takes you away from the niconico domain (like clicking an ad banner) gives you a permission error.

    No, it is not required to change the language or region of the Switch.
    You only need to create an user with a Japanese account, and access the eShop with that user.
    It is quite easy, but that said the program itself (niconico) is in Japanese.

    EDIT: follow this tutorial, sorry for the laziness but it is just the first google result:

    Hmm, I suppose that's fair enough. Wish NOA would get off their arses and release YT/Netflix.

    I never understood why they're called "MAD", as there's no definition of that acronym, as far as I know.

    Well, niconico has some anime proper too IIRC.
    You could try to access that.

    With the logic that MMD means Miku Miku Dance (Related to Vocaloid fan-made animations) MAD will have something related to Anime.
