It is kind of crazy that we still do not have Netflix. I am guessing Nintendo just wanted to focus on games. I think I also heard Netflix could have it done at launch but didn't for some reason.
It is quite bizzare that the Switch doesn't have Netflix. I understand that Nintendo wanted to emphasise that the Switch is a dedicated gaming platform, however, having other functions couldn't hurt. If anything, having appls like Netflix would add more value to the Switch. The fact that you can watch Netflix offline now makes the Switch the perfect platform for Netflix, as you will be able to watch Netflix movies/TV on the go without internet access.
Games and debauchery.
