You can now stream TV shows on the Nintendo Switch

This is hopefully the first of many streaming and premium content apps to come to the system, especially since Nintendo already provided several options on their previous consoles. It was...until today! We are very proud to announce that Hulu is the first United States streaming entertainment service to debut on Nintendo Switch! With Hulu now up and running on the Switch, you can bet that Netflix won't be far behind.

The official page for the Hulu app on Nintendo Switch is now down, but once the eShop refreshes you should be able to see it. The company has projected that it will ship 14 million units by the end of its fiscal year ending March 2018, putting it on pace to sell 16.7 million units in its first year of release.

Hulu apps are already available for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Hulu has two largely different offerings these days.

But not everyone uses Hulu, and our poor friends to the north in Canada don't get Hulu at all.

Access our huge online streaming library - featuring exclusive SVOD past seasons from shows like Seinfeld, South Park, Fargo and Fear the Walking Dead; bold originals you can't stream anywhere else; along with today's most popular current shows, movies, kids series, and more. As per usual, only time will tell when it comes to them. 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 Switch's portability makes it a great candidate for streaming services. Will you be downloading Hulu to it?
