Nintendo Switch support for Netflix and YouTube might be on the way according to a Best Buy leak

The Nintendo Switch might actually support streaming apps like Netflix and YouTube in the immediate future, according to a retail leak.

Nintendo Life reports that a Best Buy listing for the console stated that it would support streaming content.

"Get access to a world of instant entertainment with this product. Just connect to the Internet and stream movies, listen to music, and access a wide variety of content," read the details, that have since been removed.

A Twitter user called out the retailer on the update, and the Best Buy support account responded, saying, "This is indeed an error on our part and we apologize for any inconveniences. While it has been rumored to be coming, we have no solid information on if and when."

Nintendo stated that the console wouldn't support media apps on launch, but Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aimé, did say that Switch owners would have access to these services eventually.

It's possible we might hear more about Switch support for streaming content at Nintendo's E3 2018 showcase later today.

As well as the new Pokemon and Super Smash Bros., expect to hear more about Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and Mario Tennis Aces. You can read more about the games we're hoping will make an appearance during Nintendo's E3 Direct right here.
