Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app with Hulu

Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app with Hulu

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.

Nintendo has not stated when exactly the Hulu app will be available and Hulu has not provided any additional details to any outlet regarding the design or details of this app's release.

Nintendo Switch owners have been impatiently waiting for video streaming services to come to the hybrid console. While it doesn't have the cache of say, Netflix, this move definitely opens the door for other streaming services to embrace the platform.

Finally, Actor Terry Crews Reports His Sexual Assault to the Police
In a lengthy thread, Crews, 49, claimed a high-powered honcho grabbed his crotch and afterward, "grinned like a jerk". Crews tweeted that he contemplated fighting the man, but "thought twice about how the whole thing would appear".

The best part about all of this is that it's available to download right now, completely free of charge, from the Nintendo Switch's eShop. And unlike Netflix, Hulu doesn't have a system for saving videos and watching them offline.

The Switch's portability makes it a great candidate for streaming services. Beginning later today, Hulu subscribers will now be able to use their Nintendo Switch to stream all their favorite TV whether they're at home or on the go. However, that's about to change now that the Switch is getting Hulu, sometime this week. By the time that Nintendo starts charging for the Switch's online services, we fully expect that users will be able to access quite a few media app options.

But the potential has always been there, as earlier this summer, the NicoNico app (Japan's equivalent to YouTube) made its debut on the Switch-but only for people who bothered to create a Japanese eShop account.
