With the YouTube app just being released this week for the Nintendo Switch also comes the news that Netflix service will be ending for the Nintendo Wii in 2019.

As first reported on Reddit from a Netflix email, Wii will no longer be supported for Netflix. Unfortunately, Nintendo will suspend all video streaming services on Wii – including the Netflix Channel – after January 30th, 2019.

The Netflix website no longer lists the Wii (or the Wii U) as a suported device and only shows the Nintendo 3DS as a Nintendo platform for Netflix.

However the email posted on Reddit also states “We hope you’ll soon enjoy an even better Netflix experience with additional features on a supported device.” This could be a hint that a Switch release is on the way.

Netflix for Nintendo 3DS was released on July 14th, 2011 while for the Nintendo Wii U was released on November 18th, 2012.
