Hulu Comes to The Nintendo Switch

Hulu Comes to The Nintendo Switch

This will be the very first video streaming app on the Nintendo Switch, though it'll only be available for North American users as Hulu is a US-based service.

Hulu is the first USA streaming-video service to hit Nintendo Switch, which has sold 2.6 million units in the States in the first nine months of its release.

In the latest Nintendo Download email, the company revealed that the official Hulu app will be released via the Switch's eShop later this week.

The Hulu app will be available as a free download from the Nintendo eShop starting at noon EST today. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon.

While Hulu does produce original series - their upcoming adaptation of Marvel's The Runaways is generating quite a bit of buzz - they seem to be devoting as many resources to winning the third-party content arms race.

The Switch's portability makes it a great candidate for streaming services. "Beginning later today, Hulu subscribers can now use their Nintendo Switch to stream all of their favorite TV whether they're at home or on the go".

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Given the hybrid nature of the Switch, you should be able to enjoy Hulu on your television (1080p) or on the device itself in portable mode (720p). Given that Hulu has now launched an app for the Nintendo Switch, it may not be long before we see its rivals launching their own apps for the Switch.
