While the Switch has quite a lot of fans, there have been some complaints about the system that have been echoed time and again since its release. One of those complaints is the lack of entertainment services like Netflix, YouTube and Spotify. The Wii U had apps like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and YouTube available at launch. So, what’s going with the Switch? Well, when asked during a recent interview about whether or not these services will be making their way over to the new system soon, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime had this to say:

“[They] are going to come in due time.” 

The interviewer asked specifically about Netflix. Reggie responded jokingly, saying:

“You’d have to ask the folks at Netflix. I have Reed’s number [the CEO of Netflix].” 

Reggie’s statement on the matter certainly does not give a clear indication as to exactly when those entertainment apps should be expected to come over. In the meantime, just keep this in mind: if you’re reading this news post right now, that means you’re using a device that has access to these services already. Should make the wait a little easier, no?
