Hulu is now available as a free download on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in the United States, becoming the first video streaming service to release on the portable home console. It's been eight months since the console made its debut, but it's finally getting its first streaming service: Hulu. When you start up your Switch again, you'll be able to download Hulu from the Nintendo eShop and start watching shows right away.
In case you're not a Hulu subscriber and don't follow the ins and outs of the service's offerings, you should know that Hulu is now positioning themselves as the primary beneficiary of Netflix's recent content losses.
Circumstances have conspired to bring us a new section of the report this week, as the "Switch Preloads" heading will come up now for games that come up with the 4.0 feature but aren't out this week.
Hulu will be launching sometime later today. Over the years, there were two extremes (high end and low-end games) but with the release of Nintendo Switch, developers can offer a mid-tier experience to the players as well. The app will give them access to Hulu's traditional content library as well as the Live TV service which provides access to more than 50 top news, entertainment, and sports channels. We will put in the investment and develop for the platform. We've seen a variety of strong first-party titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey with some peppering of third-party titles like DOOM, Street Fighter II and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
