    I love my switch, just saying, what is the major point of having it do netflix, docked, i have a PC not docked, i don't watch netflix.

    Again my point is valid, if it is your only device, maybe it is a good idea, but if not i have plenty of things that have netflix on them and do not need another

    Netflix isn't google. google vs amazon drama is a lot deeper than u make it out to be on here. It's about companies pissed off at each other about making the same products and going at lengths to have dishonest ad campaign, see the Alexa curses videos and Alexa CIA/FBI videos which were all pushed to the front of YouTube for the first month+ it was out. How does amazon respond? Remove ALL google products from amazon, becides google's juicer, to make google look bad. so they're not helping each other. Same with Apple because they have no choice if they do/don't play along they sink a little bit (example: Google maps with Apple car play that would be horrible for Apple to allow not only google maps but you open the door to Waze which is also google owned making their 3 map apps now). Netflix is a generic streaming platform the only thing in their way is Nintendo being scared to release anything internet related before their "online phone service" is out.
    (Edit if you really wanna get meta/deeper look up rainway status on switch- oh, no results found... because Nintendo DOESNT WANT A LOT OF ONLINE APPS BEFORE 2019)

    TL;DR comparing Netflix/Nintendo to google vs amazon is not the same because google and amazon are trying to fight for a monopoly on everything they can.

    why not, just because it isn't "necessary" doesn't mean it shouldn't be done, I know it would be nice to have the option, sometimes I want to watch something while someone else is using the TV, sure I could use my phone but screen sizes is a little small, or an ipad (but sometimes my daughter is playing on it), but wouldn't it be nice if you could just grab whatever was nearest

    personally I could see me opting to fire up the switch to stick something on Netflix rather than the built in app on the tv just so I could make sure I don't get side tracked when I have to go do something i.e make dinner/ go the toilet etc....sure I could turn it off and grab my phone, log in etc, but just grabbing the switch and having it continue exactly where I was would be mighty handy, sure i have plenty of devices with Netflix capabilities, but I would still find the switch an attractive device for watching Netflix on for the same reason as I like it for gaming, which is the seamless docked/undocked mode, maybe I just lazy and have a poor attention span, but once I go do something else I often have trouble getting back into something or simply don't get around to it

    Technically it's only valid for you but for many people on the go, it's perfect to have an all in one system like Switch, I understand where you are coming from, your basically saying "well gee I already have this, that and the other on other devices, don't need it on the Nintendo Switch"

    Thank you very much for the ME, ME, ME, ME, WHAT ABOUT ME, I HAVE THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER, WHO CARES ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE, WAH! It was very insightful and inspiring but this is not for you, this is for a wider audience.

    Sadly there won't be any Netflix or Youtube apps for Switch anytime soon.

    From Nintendo:

    “When we launched the Switch, we were very clear we wanted to position the device as a game-playing device. We’ve done that, and so you’ve seen Hulu for example come on to the platform. In terms of other services, the conversations are on-going. We’ve got nothing to announce right now. But certainly those opportunities will come in due time.”

    If you need to get things done, you have to do it yourself. I'm sure some devs are already making a homebrew video app.

    Every thread is a shit thread and oh yeah, don't believe everything Nintendo puts into there PR, if you know anything at all about all 3 of the console makers, you would understand there way of misdirection, Nintendo does it all the time, Switch being just a game device is lie, don't believe there lies, they did this when announcing the DS Lite, DSi, DSiXL, 3DSXL, Wii U, so on and so forth.

    No, but I can take along any of my other 3 phones, tablet or PS Vita. That's just off the top of my head.. I'm sure I've something else around here. It's great to have options, I guess. I just don't see it as groundbreaking news or anything. Cheers!

    Or its what's known as PR speak, companies do it all the time to lie to consumers, Nintendo fans have been living with Nintendo doing this for a very long time, you will learn in due time

    too much effort, just whip that switch out and it'll continue playing right away, and you can even watch on the way to the shitter

    How much time are you spending on the toilet, that this is even a concern? Perhaps you should look at your diet or seek medical attention. I'm not trying to pick on you or anything, but I see similar comments come up a lot, and can't help but think.. half the population must be 'plugged up' with pizza rolls.

    Every thread is haha, especially since we get a ton of folks coming in expecting a CFW that isn't here cause of a rumored date.

    is since 1986 long enough, i mean i did get an NES in 86, so... you are right, i just need to wait longer.
