Netflix Streaming Goes Live On Nintendo 3DS This Week


Europe’s Nintendo 3DS video update hit the continent earlier this week, and America gets theirs this week, too. While Europe got a range of video content in partnership with various video providers, American 3DSes get Netflix support.


The Netflix app is a Nintendo eShop download. Once you have it, you can stream movies and TV shows in 2D on the 3DS top screen using an existing Netflix account. 3D movies aren’t available yet and will be added at a later date.
