Netflix will stop streaming on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U devices Later this year. In one support document spotted by Eurogamer, Nintendo says the company will stop supporting both consoles on June 30, 2021 (coincidentally, it’s the same day Minecraft Earth is set to off). Netflix has already removed its app from the eShop, making it impossible to download unless it’s already associated with your account. If the software is installed on your console, you can continue to use it to stream content from Netflix until the end of June. Next, you’ll need to research other options if the Wii U or 3DS is your primary means of accessing the platform.
Who is this judgment likely to affect? Probably the same desperate souls access Pornhub thanks to their 3DS and Wii U. There are more people than you might think, but far from a significant number. More than anything, the move will likely highlight the fact that you still can’t download Netflix on Nintendo Switch, although it is much more popular than the Wii U and better suited for mobile viewing than the 3DS.
