Hulu Video Streaming App for Nintendo Switch Will Release Soon on eShop

The Nintendo Switch launch was one of the most bare-bones in recent memory - the system even lacked basic video streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube (which the Wii, Wii U, and even 3DS had).

The Switch will receive the fully-fledged Hulu app which will include the company's live TV package and on-demand subscription service. That's finally starting to change: Hulu today announced it'll be the first streaming app for the Switch in the US. But that wasn't necessarily by choice; there just weren't any other apps available for Nintendo's hybrid console. In the first eight months of the console-handheld hybrid being out we have gotten some unbelievable Nintendo games, fun indie games, and now streaming services for when you're not in a gaming mood. You'll be able to enjoy both the traditional on-demand subscription as well as Hulu with Live TV plan and watch live and on-demand programming from more than 50 of the top news, sports and entertainment channels including all five of the major USA broadcast networks. Hulu has both a general plan for $7.99 a month as well as a Live TV Plan for $39.99 a month, both of which will be honored on the Switch. In our view, these are not differentiators. Players of Switch can expect full support from the publisher of Deus Ex, Final Fantasy, and many other games. And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform.

Hulu will be launching sometime later today.

For a long time, Nintendo has been the joke among the arsenal of console gaming and entertainment.
