Nintendo Switch Finally Gets Its First Major Streaming App Today

Share

"We are very proud to announce that Hulu is the first USA streaming entertainment service to debut on Nintendo Switch!".

In their latest "Nintendo Download" PR email blast, the company confirmed that Hulu will be coming soon to the eShop on Nintendo Switch. Hulu is a familiar face for English-speaking territories, even if the app only works in the United States. If that sounds appealing to you, then you should be able to download the Hulu app later this week for Nintendo Switch and sign up for the service for $7.99 a month or one of its more expensive ad-free and premium content offering plans. For console history buffs out there, the Switch's predecessor, the Wii U, was available with YouTube, Hulu and Netflix streaming apps. And unlike Netflix, Hulu doesn't have a system for saving videos and watching them offline.

Aluminum foil can actually improve your wireless signal
The team successfully analyzed the space in a room and created a custom reflector that could improve Wi-Fi signals inside it. Not only does it make sure you have signal in the rooms you need it in, but it allows you to cut off signal where you don't.

That's nice, but the real story here is the fact that the Nintendo Switch will offer any streaming service. That expansion takes a big step forward today with the release of the Hulu streaming app for the Switch. The console's portable design seemed to make it a natural fit for such services. But that wasn't necessarily by choice; there just weren't any other apps available for Nintendo's hybrid console.

The press release lists this URL as Switch's Hulu webpage, but the page was not yet working as of publication time.
