SALT LAKE CITY — Netflix may be on its way to the Nintendo Switch.
A recent Twitter exchange between Netflix’s customer service Twitter account and a Nintendo fan account gave hope to Switch users that the streaming app will soon be available on the Switch device.
Currently, Twitter isn’t available on the Nintendo Switch.
The account Nintendo Screen asked Netflix if there is any word on the possibility of Netflix becoming available on the Switch.
According to Mashable, Netflix responded and said there were no plans.
But then Netflix deleted the initial response and changed its mind. See the tweet below.
Correction: We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don't have definitive plans to share at this time. The incorrect original tweet has been removed.— Netflix CS (@Netflixhelps) January 15, 2018
Netflix confirmed the possibility to Polygon.
“We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don’t have definitive plans to share at this time,” a Netflix spokesperson told Polygon.
Though there’s still no confirmation, the change in response shows that Netflix is still looking to find a way to add itself to the Switch.
Nintendo previously added Hulu to its eShop lineup back in November.
The Switch continues to sell well in America. According to the Deseret News, the Nintendo video game console recently became the fastest-selling system of all time, selling 4.8 million units in 10 months.
The Switch surpassed the PlayStation 2’s record.
Nintendo plans to sell 17 million consoles by the end of April 2018. This could push the Switch into the top 10-selling devices of all time. The PlayStation 2 remains the most-sold video game console of all time with 155 million sold, according to The Verge.
