    believe it or not we've gotten software in the past without updating the console
    turns out the nintendo switch has a secret functionality enabled that permits downloading of content onto the device to use it
    this functionality isn't even tied to the system software, if you can believe it

    So Nintendo sideloaded stuff into the system eh? If they smuggled things into their system it's ok but if other devs did it they would be banned.

    It's almost mind boggling Nintendo still doesn't support video streaming especially on a portable console

    the web
    Side load or not, it is just something they can upload to the eShop. If it needs extra capability it coulda been put in a while back with hulu, there could also be an updated, who knows.

    i'm not a hundred percent certain you're kidding and that's worrying
    just in case;
    If it does release, it'll be an app on the Nintendo E-Shop like it is on every other console. It will not be hardloaded into the console or packaged with it.

    People on Nintendo E3 chat on gamespot are saying walmart canada leaked youtube and netflix on the switch as well just like bustbuy. I think there may be some truth to it now.

    >removes browser due to history as an exploit
    >removes themes due to history as an exploit
    Does this mean Nintendo will stop supporting 3rd party retailers?

    That's already how I get internet when not at the folks home. Wifi tethering is a gift from the gods! (and thank christ I have unlimited 4G with no tethering restrictions!)

    There is no need to update firmware JUST for NetFlix and other streaming apps. Just add the apps to the eShop.

    Even with a resource-heavy game, like BotW, you can get 3 hours of battery life (which is already plenty enough to watch a film). And video streaming isn't resource-heavy at all, so you could probably get at least double that.
