    Possibly bad Intel. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they finally announced more media options for the Switch. Hulu is already on there. Unless they took it off?

    I really hope this is true, but I'm pretty sure it's a mistake.

    It's a mistake, looks like the page has been updated. I guess Best Buy's website automatically puts those images on anything that's marked "Smart Capable."

    Please let this be true

    PLEASE LET THIS BE TRUE

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


    ...Upon looking, it seems sketchy. And more like just store advertising, not proof. :(

    Seems like some sort of slip, but on the other hand, I cannot see why it couldn't come to the Switch. it's like, the perfect device for portable Youtube and Netflix.

    I hope that nintendo brings finally the standards to there console! Bestbuy already tweeted that the don't have any information about that and it was a mistake that this come public...

    I would say the chances are 50/50!

    And the biggest question is... will SX OS work on the new OFW? I know that they promote with future proof, but how long will it take them to update the CFW?

    They already released a video proof that it works on 5.1.0 earlier this month, to reassure pre-orders.

    Sure. From 5.0.4 to 5.1.0 was not a big change. But what happens when we get 6.0 this week?

    Is it even worth it? I mean netflix and such are on every single device known to man, I guess one more couldn't hurt.

    I haven't tested this myself, but I'm pretty sure you can access it using Ubuntu on Switch.

    Thanks for the reply, I figured that would work but really don't want to go down the Linux route tbh

    I'll either wait for something that works from within Horizon or perhaps Android later on
