Hulu Arrives in the Console as First Streaming Service in the US

The next time you fire up your Switch, you'll be able to download Hulu right from the Nintendo eShop and stream The Handmaid's Tale, This is Us, The Mindy Project, Fargo, or whatever else you like to watch on the service. In its weekly press release announcing new releases, Nintendo revealed today that Hulu will become the console's first video streaming app outside of the Japan-only Niconico app. This streaming service is still a great option for Switch users, however, with Hulu's entire streaming library and the option to add Live TV available for those using the app.

KitGuru Says: Although it's surely inevitable that Netflix will make its way to the device, it might take some time as the Switch has been slow to adopt mainstay service as a whole in its 8-month life.

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.

The Switch console has been in the market for eight months now and has seen tremendous sales. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play.

Bethesda's 2016 Doom, originally developed for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, releases today on Nintendo's hybrid handheld Nintendo Switch. According to Nintendo 90% of Switch owners are male. This was why the focus at first was exclusively on Nintendo Switch games. When other services like Netflix, Amazon and YouTube arrive, the Nintendo Switch will not only be a portable gaming console, but also a portable entertainment device.
