It's About Time the Nintendo Switch Got a Real Streaming Video App

Teased earlier this week and confirmed by the company itself, Hulu is now available on the Nintendo eShop for download. Hulu subscribers who want to watch the service's programming can download Hulu from the Switch's built-in eShop.

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.

Are you the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch? If Hulu is here today, we'd have to imagine that Netflix and company aren't that far behind but you never know.

Right now, Hulu is only available for USA customer, according to the official Nintendo page, but this could be the beginning for several other streaming apps coming to the handheld in the future.

When the Nintendo Switch was first released, many questioned why the console wasn't accompanied by some sort of media streaming app, due to its portable nature. Of course, if you have a subscription to the service, all you have to do is log into the app with your credentials and you'll have the same access as you would on other devices.

Nintendo's Switch console can finally stream TV shows and movies, and it works like a charm.

This will be the first streaming service on the console and no doubt more will follow. We will put in the investment and develop for the platform. They've already secured the rights to shows like The X-Files, 30 Rock, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer - all formerly available via Netflix - and are still the only streaming service that offers all episodes of Seinfeld. The proper sales figure for the Nintendo Switch a year from now would be very interesting to see.
