Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app with Hulu

11 November 2017

As part of the week's eShop download announcements, Nintendo has pushed forward the Hulu app, which is available for Switch owners in North America to download right now. Hulu subscribers who want to watch the service's programming can download Hulu from the Switch's built-in eShop. Nintendo's previous console, the Wii U, had access to Netflix, Hulu and Youtube, and Nintendo's biggest competitors, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, also have several video streaming services.

The Hulu app for the Nintendo Switch, however, does not support touchscreen controls.

Unfortunately, Hulu never truly made an appearance outside of the States, paving way for other video-streaming applications such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and in the UK, NOW TV to gain a foothold.

Nintendo Switch is getting Doom this week, and that has a lot of people curious about how the technical wonder runs on the hybrid home/handheld console.

The Nintendo Switch's features outside of vanilla game-playing are slowly but surely becoming more robust.

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. While playing the hottest games like Super Mario Odyssey, you can quickly and easily take the traditional home console experience on the go. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon. "And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform". However, they're available in different packages.
