Because it is a video game system, not a media box.

How many laptops, desktops, smart tvs, phones, tablets, and video game systems do you need in one house that all play the same apps? It simply isn't a useful use of their time/effort/money to accommodate these things on the Switch. Nobody is buying less Switch games or not buying a Switch because it doesn't have the same apps they already can conveniently use on probably multiple things they own.
