Nintendo Switch finally embraces streaming as Hulu touches down

Hulu is coming to the Nintendo Switch today as an eShop download, meaning my Wii U is reserved for nothing more than YouTube and Netflix anymore.

With the recent success of the Switch, Hulu and Nintendo are looking to capitalize by bringing the USA only streaming service to the new console.

For those of you like me who have yet to grab a bigger memory card for your Switch, the Hulu download is only 39 MB, and it is supported in either docked or portable mode.

Right now, Hulu is only available for U.S. 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.

Meanwhile, the launch comes after Nintendo earlier this year hinted that streaming apps were on the way for Switch.

The win moves fourth-placed Chelsea to within a point of Tottenham and United , who remain in second on goal difference. But while Lukaku has now gone a seventh game in all competitions without scoring, Morata's goal starvation is over.

However, the arrival of Hulu could open the floodgates for other streaming services to seek their place at the table.

The on-demand service as well as the live TV option will be available to Switch owners when Hulu lands later on Thursday. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon. In our view, these are not differentiators.

"Thought Nintendo Switch was just for games?" And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform. If Hulu is here today, we'd have to imagine that Netflix and company aren't that far behind but you never know.

When Nintendo provided information for eShop updates for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch on November 9, 2017, an important milestone was announced.
