My family and I have been a huge fan of watching Disney, Marvel, and Pixar movies on Disney+ since the video streaming app launched, and we enjoy watching it on any device we can. Gaming devices included. But, specifically, is Disney+ on the Nintendo Switch gaming console?
The Disney+ streaming service is not on Nintendo Switch as of 2021 and there is no way to add Disney+ to Nintendo Switch now or in the foreseeable future. Neither Nintendo nor Disney has commented on whether the popular streaming app will come to Nintendo’s hybrid gaming console.
Disney+ may not be on Nintendo Switch, but many other video game systems and devices can download the application.
Read on for more details of where you can watch Disney+, what streaming movie apps are on Nintendo Switch, and more!

Is Disney+ Coming To Nintendo Switch?
As of now, Disney+ is not coming to Nintendo Switch, but that was not always the case. Disney shared a list of compatible devices for its then upcoming streaming app in 2019 and the Nintendo Switch was one of the devices listed.
At Disney Investor’s Day 2019 meeting, the company hosted a live-stream and shared with the public which devices the company planned to have the Disney+ application available.

Disney showed an image that showcased all devices the company desired to launch the Disney+ application. The image included the Nintendo Switch, which means Disney intended for Disney+ to be available for Nintendo Switch owners to download.
Sadly, Disney hasn’t given a reason as to why Disney+ isn’t on Nintendo Switch, but it seemed as though the “House of Mouse” had wanted it on Nintendo’s console at one point in time.
Should You Expect Disney+ To Come To The Nintendo Switch?
I suggest having low expectations of Disney+ coming to the Nintendo Switch. There has been no official mention of the streaming application coming to Nintendo’s popular hybrid console since 2019 and that doesn’t seem like it will change anytime soon.

Why Disney+ isn’t on Nintendo Switch is a mystery.
There is always a chance the popular app will appear on Nintendo’s console, and only time will tell, but it’s better to keep expectations low than to get one’s hopes up.
What Movie And Streaming Apps Are On Nintendo Switch?
A few popular streaming and video services are on Nintendo Switch including Hulu, YouTube, Funimation, and PokémonTV. All applications are free to download, but Hulu and Funimation both require paid memberships to access content.
Check out the chart below for the updated list of all streaming services available to Nintendo Switch owners, file size and release dates included.
