Netflix recently sent out an email notifying users Nintendo will be suspending all video streaming services on the Wii - including the Netflix Channel - at the end of January 2019. Here's the full message below, courtesy of a post on Reddit:

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 for our device list.

It's not all that surprising when considering the fact the Wii Shop Channel will close in the same month next year and official online multiplayer support for the system ended years ago. It's also interesting timing this reminder has been issued as the YouTube app has just been released on the Switch.
