Nintendo Switch is getting its first video streaming app with Hulu

Hulu subscribers who want to watch the service's programming can download Hulu from the Switch's built-in eShop.

Today Hulu announced that they have added their Hulu app with live TV to the Nintendo switch.

Bethesda's 2016 Doom, originally developed for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, releases today on Nintendo's hybrid handheld Nintendo Switch. It's Hulu, and Switch owners can download it now.

Perhaps we'll see the arrival of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in the coming months, followed by more on-demand apps?

In terms of getting games on the console first, Nintendo has done an excellent job of getting that done in the Switch's first year. We've reached out to Nintendo and Hulu for more details. 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.

For a long time, Nintendo has been the joke among the arsenal of console gaming and entertainment.

The Nintendo Switch finally has its first video streaming app, a feature that was present for its predecessors Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U. A decent suite of streaming options is no doubt on its way to the Switch, starting with Hulu.

A reimagined TV experience that adjusts to your tastes every time you use Hulu. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon. Though Hulu is already available on cell phones, the Switch offers a much larger screen comparable to that of a smaller tablet.

The worldwide pioneer in the creation of interactive entertainment, Nintendo Co., Ltd., of Kyoto, Japan, manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Nintendo Switch™ system and the Nintendo 3DS™ family of portable systems.

Hulu is now available for the Nintendo Switch.
