Right now, the streaming apps that are available for users to download on Nintendo Switch are Hulu, YouTube, Crunchyroll and Funimation. Netflix, unfortaneously is not available on Nintendo Switch. There appear to be no plans to bring other streaming services to the device, and it is unlikely that Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and other services will be added to the console. Since the Nintendo Switch was released in 2017, Netflix and other streaming platforms have not announced any intentions to bring their services to the console.

Part 1 Installing Android on the system

One way to get Netflix on Nintendo Switch is to add Android OS to your Switch. With Android OS, you'll have access to the Google Play Store, which obviously opens the door to installing Netflix as well as other Android apps.

However, this is not the recommended way because you are hacking your Switch by adding Android 10. By doing so, you are exposing yourself to multiple risks, including making your Switch completely inoperable if you make a mistake. If Nintendo finds out that you've hacked your Switch, it also tends to ban users from using the online service. This means you will lose access to online multiplayer games and the Switch eShop.

If you're fine with the risks and your Switch is hackable , read this post from the XDA Developers forum and follow the installation steps  to get Android onto your Switch. It's not an incredibly complicated process, but you do have to be a bit tech savvy to do it. You'll also need a high-speed microSD card with at least 16GB of storage as well as a USB-C cable to connect from your Switch to your PC.
