Netflix ditches Nintendo Wii; YouTube comes to Switch

Netflix on Nintendo Wii
A simpler time …

Games are still coming out for Nintendo Wii, but online services continue to shut down on the venerable hardware.

The Wii Shop Channel has already stopped selling or accepting Wii Points to purchase software like Virtual Console classic game ports and WiiWare originals. You have until just after New Year’s 2019 to use any remaining Wii Points in your account before they become useless.

Now, Netflix — which joined the Wii channel lineup back in 2010 — is shutting down its Wii service.

Unfortunately, Nintendo will suspend all video streaming services on Wii—including the Netflix Channel—after January 31, 2019.

We hope you’ll soon enjoy an even better Netflix experience with additional features on a supported device. Please visit netflix.com/wii for our device list.

Netflix isn’t yet available on Nintendo’s newest hardware, the hybrid handheld console Switch — and why would you want it, anyway? But the Switch already has Hulu and just gained a YouTube app.
