Hulu Launches on Nintendo Switch

Hulu Launches on Nintendo Switch”

Nintendo has announced the U.S. cord cutting service Hulu will be the first major streaming service to land on the Switch.

Nintendo and Hulu have partnered up to bring the streaming service to the gaming giant's best-selling console, the Nintendo Switch.

The app will be free to download and for new users there's a free trial period to take advantage of.

The Nintendo Switch receives the full Hulu app, with owners of the hybrid console able to access both its $7.99 service and its $39.99 Hulu with Live TV plan.

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.

When the Nintendo Switch launched, it was one of the most bare-bone consoles ever.

"We built the Nintendo Switch to be a world-class gaming device, meaning we want you first and foremost to play games on the system and have an incredibly fun experience", Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime told The Washington Post back in March. With Hulu now up and running on the Switch, you can bet that Netflix won't be far behind.

Fils-Aime reiterated those thoughts to Kotaku last month, stating that video streaming services are going to come would come to Switch "in due time".

The Switch has been one of the Nintendo's best selling consoles to date. 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. Besides, you will be able to watch live TV channels like ESPN, CNN, and FX with Hulu Live TV.

Sadly, none of these applications have yet received love and attention on the Nintendo Switch, not to mention free services such as BBC iPlayer (although that does require a TV Licence).
