Probably soon, when Nintendo of Europe strikes a deal with them. I don't recommend a 3DS to watch movies though. Low Res and small screen.
I watched practically all of Arrested Development on the 3DS. It isn't that bad.
In general people will have a smartphone or even better a tablet which has better screens than the 3DS, although if your options are limited and running low on battery on other devices, 3DS can do the job perfectly fine as well.

I really want a 3DS XL. Not happening this year cos of the Wii U focus. :(

I have a tablet but still use my 3DS thanks to the size.

I also really want a 3DS XL, for various reasons, but relevant ones being that it would make watching videos and Netflex simply more pleasing, but I'm poor, so I'll wait patiently.

Whatever works for you I don't object, I'm just saying it's a pity 3DS didn't have a higher res and bigger screens at least 4 inches. It would have been a little more better. :) Oh well...

Yeah, I do wish they used up more the top flaps space. Oh well, maybe in a XL.

Actually, things don't look that bad on the 3DS. Videos made at top quality with the 3DS video converter look better than those on Netflix, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching things on it. I watched almost all of Speed Grapher on it during my "random anime" Summer last year and it wasn't half bad.

I read in Nintendo Gamer that Netflix do not intend to release it in the UK for the 3DS any time soon. The exact quote was

We asked Netflix and they said "We have no plans to expand coverage of Netflix on the 3DS into UK/Ireland. This may change in the future though"

Issue 76 Page 52 if you are interested.

  • chrisrlink @ chrisrlink:
    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

    I'm tired of alot of thing but I still hear you :teach:

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Still love you tho

    @BigOnYa I think I'm done trolling the yuzu and citra threads, will duck out so that I don't get caught by the ban broom :)

    Nuh it don't bother me. I'm just teasing @K3Nv2

    @BigOnYa, we can throw down dog

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Keep it up, I'm gonna stop my wifey from making visits that way
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I'll throw a lawsuit on you for keeping me away from your wife

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I want Patreon dues then
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    69k would you take 3mill?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Sold! I'll pack her bags in the morn
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I want the dog also
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download

    K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2: Awesome deal pissed I spent 80 on this last year...
