  • Doom Being On Nintendo Switch Is Impressive, But You Probably Shouldn't Play It

Starting later on Thursday, Hulu subscribers can use the Nintendo Switch to stream both live TV and VOD-only plans.

Hulu said the new app supports its traditional on-demand subscription plans as well as its new $39.99 Live TV service, which offers live and on-demand programming from more than 50 channels including ESPN, Fox Sports, CNN, FX, Bravo, TNT, and A&E. Hulu (with live TV) is the first USA streaming service to be released on the Switch. According to Nintendo 90% of Switch owners are male. In the first eight months of the console-handheld hybrid being out we have gotten some wonderful Nintendo games, fun indie games, and now streaming services for when you're not in a gaming mood.

Which streaming service would you like to see pop up on Switch next?

The console is so popular that it could sell more in a year than Wii U sold in its entire lifetime.

It's been over six months since the Switch's release in March.

The 19 touchdowns are a record for a player in his first seven games, and he has two rushing touchdowns in addition to that total. The injury occurred mid-practice and was a non-contact play.


While some might argue that it's much simpler to just watch Hulu, Netflix and Amazon on your phone while on the go, the Switch does have its perks.

With Hulu now officially available on the Switch, Nintendo appears to be ready to start offering video streaming services.

Is Nintendo Switch Netflix Coming Next?

Likewise, the Switch now has a larger library of games than when it was first launched, which clearly reflects Nintendo's effort of putting games first. The only indication that it's coming are the mention of the app in the email to press and a now blank page on Nintendo's website.

Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and other video streaming app may release their respective apps for the hybrid console soon, which would further expand the appeal of the Nintendo Switch.

Modern video game consoles can do a lot more than just play games.
