Hulu is Coming to the Nintendo Switch Today

Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app today. Hulu subscribers who want to watch the service's programming can download Hulu from the Switch's built-in eShop. The Hulu app is expected to go live along with the rest of the eShop updates later today.

Although this version of Hulu doesn't have any new and exciting features, it's still remarkable, considering that it is the very first video streaming app that's available on the Nintendo Switch. However, they also now offer the $39.99 Live TV plan that gets you access to all the networks that Irving mentioned in his statement above.

Since it launched the Switch console this spring, Nintendo has focused exclusively on gaming experiences, swerving the recent trend of consoles being all-in-one media consumption hubs.

For the time, it is unclear, why the other services are not coming to the Switch with Hulu as Nintendo has not revealed any details.

The console is so popular that it could sell more in a year than Wii U sold in its entire lifetime. The announcement of the Hulu app was apparently placed at the end of the press release, according to GameSpot.




It's a shame, because the Switch's hybrid nature makes it an ideal platform for streaming videos. To them, I say, what about the promise of the Switch, where you can undock the device and walk around using it?

At $59.99 Doom for the Nintendo Switch is somewhat baffling.

As of this writing, Hulu is yet to go live on Switch, but hopefully services like Netflix, YouTube and Amazon won't be far behind! This was why the focus at first was exclusively on Nintendo Switch games. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon.

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