Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app with Hulu

Doom Being On Nintendo Switch Is Impressive, But You Probably Shouldn't Play It DOOM Nintendo Switch review–A fully featured package with big visual compromises

"Beginning later today, Hulu subscribers can now use their Nintendo Switch to stream all of their favorite TV whether they're at home or on the go".

In terms of video quality, both live and pre-recorded shows looked about as good as the Switch's 720p screen can enable, which is to say clear, but not as crisp as on a Full HD 1080p screen. Hulu (with live TV) is the first United States streaming service to be released on the Switch. Game consoles have had to provide options to watch video ever since the PlayStation 2 integrated a DVD player, and the Switch will inevitably be compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of features.

The Switch will receive the fully-fledged Hulu app which will include the company's live TV package and on-demand subscription service. Join our new Cord Cutting Tech Support Facebook Group for help.

Hopefully this means release dates for the likes of Netflix, YouTube, BBC iPlayer and Amazon Prime aren't far off. Are you looking forward to more services on the Switch? With Hulu and Nintendo getting the service out, here's hoping that we see other big services, such as Netflix, Spotify, and HBO (to name a few), join Hulu sooner rather than later.

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

Well, apparently that changes this week, as Nintendo has revealed Hulu is coming to the Switch.

Nintendo debuted the Switch - a hybrid console that can be connected to a TV or used as a mobile device - in March 2017. This was why the focus at first was exclusively on Nintendo Switch games. Even the Wii U, as flawed as it was, had access to Netflix and other streaming services at launch.
