Using a Nintendo Switch as a movie platform

Hi all,

I am considering into buying a Nintendo Switch. I would like to use it for 2 things; playing Switch games of course but also using it as a Netflix/Disney+/movies device. If you dock your Switch to your TV, does it display movies like that? And does it even have apps like Netflix or Disney+

Also, if there would be apps for movie watching, do you need to have Nintendo Switch Online?

This is a good use for watching movies on Android. Besides I use the new TV BRASIL app:


If you can, you will be a genius.

No, those apps are not available for the Switch. And for some games you need Nintendo Switch Online (to play online multiplayers).

That's a shame. I can still remember the good old days of my PS3 having free online multiplayer.

And for the Netflix apps not being on the Switch is such a shame. I'd take it that many people use a switch for entertainment in the train, or on the plane and it would be logical to also be able to watch Netflix on it. Shame, missed opportunity.

Anyway complaints aside, thanks for your reply. I know what I wanted to know.

Cheers and have a good weekend.


Hi Niels,

Yeah it's too bad. From now on we need to pay for the online services. Well it's still free for the PS3 (as far as I know). But you need to pay to play online for the PS4 and for the Xbox, and now for the Switch too. For now, they are not available in the E-shop for the Switch. But it was available for the Wii-U. Not sure why it's not available anymore (licenses expired?). Anyway, enjoy the weekend!

Hmmm the YouTube app is on switch and they now have mainstream and original movies I’m not sure if it’s a subscription that comes with YouTube red or what it is but I know it’s there you could consider home brewing your switch just make sure to get the old version of the big one otherwise it complicates things and then download the movies onto an SD card for an unofficial media player or home brew may allow you to download things like Netflix and prime I’m not sure I’ve also heard vudu is currently on switch hope this helps

If you manage to get a hackable one, you can install android or Ubuntu on it, but it requires some tinkering with the programs.
