Most people watch Netflix on a TV, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, but the video streaming service has been accessible on a much wider range of devices over the years, including old Nintendo consoles and handhelds. Support is coming to an end this year, though.
As NintendoLife reports, Nintendo has announced that the Netflix service will be discontinued for the New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 2DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS, Wii U Deluxe, and Wii U Basic on June 30. The Netflix app was actually removed from the eShop on Dec. 31 last year, but anyone who already had the app installed can still download it.
Nintendo thanks customers for supporting the applications over the years, but there will be no more streaming available on any of the devices listed above come July. I suspect there aren’t very many people still using a 3DS or Wii U to stream Netflix, but if you do, enjoy it while you still can.
This decision will come as little surprise to most people. The Wii U came to the end of its life in 2017, and wasn’t exactly popular. The 3DS was quietly discontinued in September last year after nearly a decade of entertaining us. It’s also far from the best platform for streaming video content due to its tiny, low resolution displays.
