Is there a way to install custom app that can play Netflix on my Nintendo Switch, much like those unverified sources installation approach on Android?
I read there is easier way through “secret browser” to play Netflix. But many comments say it does nt work.
Short answer is – NO / None / Nada.
Unless, you install Android on or jailbreak it. The former means you’ll be technically booting to Android system. The latter is much more like what you probably have heard of people jailbreaking their iPhones, then run apps that were not supposed to be playable on the device.
Both are risky. It can cause irreversible damage to your Nintendo Switch. And you’ll end up with what they popularly call as a bricked device. Just an expensive paperweight on other words. The choice is yours. Read and understand thoroughly before you decide to go ahead. If you like to tinker then this should be a fun exercise.
The other claim that you can “play Netflix” on a browser on the Nintendo Switch without doing anything overly technical is only half true. Yes there is that so called secret browser that you can force to show and use much like you would a browser on your Mac or phone. It involves manually setting an IPv4 address as DNS in your Switch’s Internet connection settings.
While you can logon to a Netflix account or browse the catalog, that’s about all you can do there. When you start playing a movie Netflix will say the browser does not support the minimum requirements for streaming the content.
So you are left with a browser, that is awkward and clunky to use.
Get a tablet instead if you want a portable device for watching movies on the go.
