Also there's a rail system inside the sides of the unit.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

@Nemodius You think NIntendo is trying to extort Netflix? Hah! As if they're going to see any significant loss of subscribers by discontinuing Wii/Wii U/3DS. I'll be one probably (unless I just finally buy a chromecast or something to have a pseudo-smart tv) but that's negligible. I'm sure this is Netflix drawing a hard line on Nintendo saying "We won't support you at all until you give us X". Of course who knows what X is, or how reasonable it is for Nintendo to refuse to give it. Either or both could be at fault, who knows.

@Nemodius There's no way to know how many people rely solely on their Wii U for Netflix. The Wii U itself was a failure, so the numbers are already pretty low. I think it'd be extremely generous to assume that 1 million people rely on it as the sole source of Netflix, but using that number, they represent 0.7% of the total Netflix subscribers. That's pretty much nothing.
The amount of Wii users would be even lower given how old it is. People have $40 Blu-ray players now that do it better than the Wii. They at least will stream in HD, the Wii will not.
If even every single one of these people cancelled their subscription to Netflix, it'd barely even be a blip.

Even on the flip side, with the Switch being an up and coming system, still represents so little. Realistically, how many people are out there saying "I'd subscribe to Netflix, but Switch is the only device I have, so I'm not getting it"? Not many.

Even using extremely generous numbers, it doesn't add up to affecting Netflix much at all. I think it's more likely Netflix just waited to see whether they should bother with Switch after the Wii U failure and it just isn't a big priority for them.

@subpopz I included ALL Nintendo systems that supported Netflix, not JUST Wii U, get yo shnizzit strait before you try to come back at me

I also said it would not put them into hardship, but that they will feel it, like stepping on a nail, it won't kill your ability to walk, but you will be affected

there are over 1 Million Netflix subscribers that use their Wii and Wii U's to watch on their tv's, the most popular plan is "Standard" and the subscription rate for Netflix is $10.99/mo,
so a possible loss of a minimum of $11 MILLION/mo = $130,000,000/year loss in America alone.......
yes, it will hit, they will feel it and it will hurt, and remember, Netflix has a value of 11.69 billion and yearly net income of 556 Million in 2017, Netflix has subscribers world wide, and all the subscribers that use Nintendo products to watch will hit even harder, estimate a possible loss of $175,000,000+/year world wide
would you feel a possible loss of 31.50% from your paycheck every month ??? "insignificant" ???

ya, they WILL hurt

@Nemodius You should try reading subpopz post lol, they mentioned both Wii and Wii U. I doubt there exists more than 1 or 2 people on the planet who use a 3DS as a primary source of Netflix.

@Nemodius ...and I mentioned them in that post. Read the whole thing.
Regardless, the amount of people solely using any Nintendo system for Netflix is insignificantly low.

I grabbed the YouTube app and @Anti-Matter wasn’t kidding about the speed and quality. Looks better than my phone, I can see myself using it while eating breakfast once in awhile.

I like that they’re continuing to put more characters in Kirby, and outfits in Odyssey. Makes me hope they’ll do little events or something for Ultimate

I'm hoping that new spirits gets added over time, some using DLC characters and others using the base roster. It would be a nice way to keep the single player aspect of Smash Ultimate fresh post-launch.

The comment also made me think about that Nintendo doesn't have much known post-launch content going into 2019 at this point, only Smash and Mario Tennis Aces.

@Grumblevolcano Also, Kirby Star Allies might get that rumored 4th wave sometime early 2019, since we know there's datamined stuff that's still not out yet.

@Nemodius the bezel of the Switch is quite large. It seems like there's some area for future improvement in making the Switch smaller while keeping the current screen size.

Here is a fun test, compare your phone with the switch. Screen on the switch is really tiny.

@IceClimbers Odyssey too, following up the last of the hint art and costumes with new kingdoms would be fantastic.

@link3710 I only remember seeing 3 waves rumoured (all the dream friends we've seen) but it would be nice to see even more content. Another Dimension was a nice surprise for the upcoming wave 3.

@Grumblevolcano I think it's pretty clear at this point that Kingdom DLC for Odyssey isn't happening.

I've been enjoying the crap out of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the only game I like out of the three I own. But damn, I'm just really impressed. Best Mario Kart game ever I'd say, it's my favorite now.

Even if none of us in this thread uses the video apps on our switch someone else will or kids will. Not every child has there on tv/console in every home for various reasons. Most siblings have to share parents getting there children switches eliminates a lot of the finical cost of buying a tv and console separate. Parents would more likely flock to switch for them they can sit play games and watch netflix on switch without taking up tv and its more convenient. I don't have cable my children sit and watch cartoons on Netflix all day long.

If a parent wants to buy a device to watch youtube on, they can buy 2-3 phones and/or for the same price as a switch. They also get one of the biggest gaming library on top of that, where many of the games are free or cost a fraction of the cost of a switch game.

I think it is nonsense to believe netflix will have a drove of people cancel their subscribing as a previous poster tried to claim. Or that Nintendo would have had that much more people buying switches if they would have had more video apps.

I wish that was true lol. It's more like the other way around if you want a decent product. And I'm not even talking about the overpriced high-end stuff, or iPhones.

Just for that I had that run a price check. I found 275 android models for less than half the price of a switch. 112 for a third of the price. I am not saying those are good phones, but you should find at least one to be acceptable as an entertainment device for the kids. If I would guess, of those phones I can probably find something that is better than my kids current phones (Lenovo b2?), since they are old now. And those can run netflix and youtube just fine.

This is in Sweden, it might be different where you live.

Personally my kids are rocking Moto G4 phones, which are very good at running YouTube and Netflix. The new G6 Play in the Uk can be brought from Amazon for £149.00. The beauty of android mobile phones is prooviding you have the right TV you can cast what your watching to the TV.
YouTube on the Switch is nice but is it essential i again personally would say no
