How to Manage Your Followed News Channels on Your Nintendo Switch

Keep up to date on all things Nintendo by managing News channels on your Switch.

Using the Nintendo News application on your Nintendo Switch is a great way to ensure you receive all the latest updates on anything Nintendo related, with your News feed catered to all your favorite Nintendo games and Channels.

And with choosing Channels that appeal to you, your News only presents the information you have specifically selected. However, sometimes your selected News Channels send you articles and information you don’t want or don’t want to view anymore.

Luckily, in this scenario, your Nintendo Switch has a couple of easy ways to manage and customize your followed News Channels on your Nintendo Switch. Let’s take a look.

Manage Your Followed Nintendo News Channels Through the Nintendo News App

One of the easiest ways to manage your Nintendo News Channels is through the actual Nintendo News application, helping you ensure that your News feed is precisely as you intend it to be.
