Hulu video app is now available for the Nintendo Switch

Doom Being On Nintendo Switch Is Impressive, But You Probably Shouldn't Play It

"We are very proud to announce that Hulu is the first United States streaming entertainment service to debut on Nintendo Switch", Hulu's vice president of product Richard Irving said in his blog post yesterday. In that report, it unceremoniously reveals that Hulu will be going live on the Nintendo Switch eShop later today. Once installed, Hulu subscribers will see the same interface that they are familiar with from other platforms, with the Lineup and Keep Watching lists on display. Switch owners won't just have access to their saved TV shows and on-demand programming, but the streaming service will also bring its live TV component to the console.

Given its hybrid nature, the Switch is an excellent console for streaming films and TV shows and it's a feature that's been highly requested since the console's launch.

Since its debut, the Switch has focused primarily on games, in wake of the underwhelming sales and life the Wii successor, the Wii U had.

The Switch's portability makes it a great candidate for streaming services.


Hopefully this means release dates for the likes of Netflix, YouTube, BBC iPlayer and Amazon Prime aren't far off.

Oddly, neither Nintendo nor Hulu have said anything about the arrival of Hulu on Switch yet. Stream Hulu's entire library, plus over 50 top Live and On Demand channels, including FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, ESPN, FX, NBCSN, FS1, History Channel and TNT. This was why the focus at first was exclusively on Nintendo Switch games. There is still no word as to when the other big streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon plan to get onto the Switch, if at all.

Nintendo Switch - This revolutionary video game system combines the power of a home console with the flexibility of a portable system.
