Watch the review of the game on NWR TV, then boot the eShop and buy the game.

The Switch has rolled out media apps slowly, but a 10,000lb gorilla may be entering the eShop soon.

On YouTube's feedback page, the Nintendo Switch is now listed as a compatible device for viewing YouTube. Sources close to Nintendo World Report have identified this Thursday as a probable launch date, though neither YouTube or Nintendo have confirmed this as of yet.

The last major media application to come to Switch was Hulu, which launched on November 9 of last year. The Japanese eShop has an application for local streaming site NicoNicoDouga.

So will we be getting Netflix in November next year or do I have to wait for 2020?

One year at a time in order to space these applications out over the holiday seasons to get more of that Switch buying mania each time.

2017 - Switch: It has Hulu
2018 - Switch: It has YouTube
2019 - Switch: It has Netflix
2020 - Switch: It has Folders

I would prefer if video streaming apps stayed off the Switch. I like the idea of Switch purely as a gaming device.

I mean it in the most respectful way possible when I say: "Then use it that way!"

Yeah, when you have no obligation to download these apps and Nintendo isn't pushing it on you, then its really a non-issue to have them available to people who do.

I would love to see Twitch join YouTube as well.

Seconded. Twitch, CrunchyRoll (or better yet VRV) Amazon and Plex ;)

Maybe Switch+ will be waterproof.

I’m not sure if I would use YouTube on my switch, I hardly ever use it on my Wii U or 3DS. But I do use Netflix a lot on my Wii U  ;)
