Hulu Launches on Nintendo Switch Game System

Hulu Launches on Nintendo Switch Game System

Today Hulu announced that they have added their Hulu app with live TV to the Nintendo switch.

The video streaming app that arrives first to the Nintendo Switch is not Netflix, however, as the distinction goes to Hulu.

Just like on other platforms, the Hulu app itself is a free download with a free trial available to new users. 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.

As a guy who has had an absolute ball playing his Switch this year, I have to say Nintendo is delivering on every point this year. Unfortunately, we have no information about Netflix on the Switch.

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.

Meanwhile, the launch comes after Nintendo earlier this year hinted that streaming apps were on the way for Switch.

Developed by id Software in conjunction with Panic Button, DOOM on Nintendo Switch includes the award-winning 2016 first-person shooter plus all of the game's multiplayer DLC and Arcade Mode.

The Nintendo Switch is impressive in its own way, but it doesn't have almost the power of Sony or Microsoft's consoles, much less a high-end gaming PC.

The arrival of Hulu, however, likely means that the wait for non-game apps is coming to an end. It is really shaping up to be the ideal travel companion, with the option to play games while in transit and presenting many more entertainment options once in the hotel room.

There is currently no news yet of the Switch gaining access to other video streaming services such as Netflix or YouTube, but now that the console has one video streaming service, more are sure to follow eventually.
