No video streaming apps will be available on Nintendo’s new Switch console, the company has confirmed.



Nintendo has confirmed that Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video and BBC’s iPlayer will not be coming to its new Switch console, which will be launched globally on March 3. It also wouldn’t confirm if they would be coming eventually.



“All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing dedicated video game platform, so it will not support any video-streaming services at launch. However, support for video-streaming services is being considered for a future update,” the company said.
