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 a few streaming services, such as Crunchyroll, Twitch, Funimation, YouTube, and Hulu. Not even Netflix is available. This tells us that the Nintendo Switch can host 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 showed Disney Plus running on the console, but there have been no updates since then.

Hopefully, Disney will prioritize support for Nintendo Switch in the coming future. We will update this article as and when we know more about Disney Plus coming to the Switch.
