If you really, really want to watch Netflix on your Switch, it’s technically possible, but it’s not recommended as it requires stepping outside the confines of typical console usage. Basically, you will have to jailbreak your Switch. This is a complex process (via XDA Developers) of downloading and installing the Android OS on the console, and when complete, you will have voided the warranty, no longer be eligible for official support from the Nintendo console and will be more susceptible to being hacked.
Whether or not jailbreaking your Switch is worth it to watch Netflix is something only you can decide, however, it bears repeating that there are several other platform options available besides this one, and none of them require removing your hacking defenses. Assuming you decide to do so, once Android OS is up and running on your Switch, you can use it like any other Android tablet. For this reason, all you have to do is log into the Google Play Store and download the official Netflix app, then log in with your account and start streaming.
