As of June 30 this yr, it has been confirmed that the official Netflix app will now not operate on both the Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS household of consoles. Whereas the app hasn’t been accessible for obtain since December 31 final yr, it has now been made official that the service is being shut down on the 2 programs as soon as and for all.
