Streaming video service Netflix runs on so many devices these days that it's easy to take it for granted. The Nintendo Switch is not one of those devices, though — ever since the hybrid system first released, owners have been eagerly awaiting their own version of Netflix, and it just hasn't arrived. What's worse, Netflix recently took to Twitter saying that there was "no plans" to release Netflix for the Nintendo Switch.
In a tweet that has since been removed, Netflix responded to a question posed by Twitter account Nintendo Screens who asked if there was any word on when Netflix would hit the Switch. This was the original response given:
Hey there! There are currently no plans for Netflix on Nintendo Switch. We appreciate your feedback on it! *JF

Naturally, the internet wasn't thrilled about such a firm shutdown to the possibility of bringing the service to the Switch, and Netflix has since deleted the original tweet and posted a new official response:
Correction: We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don't have definitive plans to share at this time. The incorrect original tweet has been removed.— Netflix CS (@Netflixhelps) January 15, 2018
The new response certainly sounds more optimistic than the last, but for the time being, it seems there are no firm plans to make the Netflix service part of the overall Nintendo Switch experience. Until then, the Switch's crisp 6.2-inch touch screen will have to be used the way it was intended, playing all the latest and most highly-rated Nintendo Switch titles, the likes of we discuss in our recent debate of the best games of 2017.
