Ouya, the $99 gaming console which was introduced this week and runs a version of the Android operating system, lacks support for major online video services from Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX), YouTube, Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) and Hulu.

The box, which has drawn mixed reviews so far, includes support for some streaming media apps from Crunchyroll, Flixster, Twitch and the home networking app Plex. The Kickstarter-funded box's creators say there are more media apps on the way.
An early user says he ran an unsupported version of Netflix on the box which suffered from long loading times and poor video quality.
Ouya founder Julie Uhrman reportedly told attendees at the South by Southwest conference in March that the company was working to bring major streaming video services to the low-cost game console.
