The Nintendo Switch seems like the perfect platform for a streaming service like Disney Plus. Many children would possibly own a Switch instead of a smartphone or a tablet, and Disney Plus has a plethora of kids content up for consumption.

Sadly, the Switch is not big on streaming applications even though it has a few. Disney Plus is not available on the handheld console. The Switch only offers YouTube and Hulu as of now, not even Netflix. This tells us that the Nintendo Switch is indeed capable of hosting a streaming application, so it’s really up to Disney if it wants to bring its app to the Switch.

An early promo slide for the service did show Disney Plus running on the console, but there have been no updates on the matter since then.
