Hulu Launches on Nintendo Switch Game System

It's now been confirmed by Hulu that the app will be available to download later today on the Nintendo eShop.

If you're new to the service, you can get a free trial before paying the $7.99 monthly subscription fee for the Limited Commercials plan or $11.99 for the No Commercials plan. A decent suite of streaming options is no doubt on its way to the Switch, starting with Hulu.

Once the Hulu app is downloaded on the fans' respective Nintendo Switch consoles, they will be able to have access to over 50 top channels in the country.

Only a digital version of the game is being released for Switch owners. Instead, users will need to navigate the app using the Joy-Cons. So far, we have not heard a peep about YouTube or Netflix coming to Switch, but today Nintendo slipped us a tiny morsel of hope. It is the first major streaming service to be made available in the US, as the YouTube-like app called Niconico was only exclusive released for Japan users.

In many ways you have to admire Nintendo's restraint here in prioritising the gaming experiences on the Nintendo Switch.

It's a shame, because the Switch's hybrid nature makes it an ideal platform for streaming videos.

The Switch has been one of the Nintendo's best selling consoles to date.

More than eight months after launch, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting a bit of functionality that both of its predecessors had and both of its immediate competitors have had since launching in 2013. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon. 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 Nintendo Switch Hulu app is now live from the Nintendo Eshop.
