The focus of Nintendo for its hybrid console “Switch” has been games. Media applications such as YouTube and Netflix weren’t announced with the console and haven’t been available since it’s launch until now!
Nintendo wanted it to be known that the Nintendo Switch is first and foremost a games console and not a media device. The decision to withhold non-game applications from its eStore have helped enforce that message. It has been common knowledge that those services will come to the console but there was no date provided.
Today YouTube is now available as a free download via the Nintendo eStore for the Nintendo Switch console. Hopefully Netflix won’t be long behind as the console begins to open up as an all-in-one gaming device.
