When the Switch was launched, some criticized Nintendo for not offering access to streaming services like Hulu and Netflix.

There's also some other great games coming to Switch this week. The partnership between Hulu and Nintendo goes back several years so it is not surprising that their app service is first. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play. While Nintendo did not state that such services would never be available, they did deflect questions regarding streaming apps on the Nintendo Switch. However, that's about to change now that the Switch is getting Hulu, sometime this week.

It's somewhat surprising to see Hulu hit Switch before the more-ubiquitous Netflix, but the streaming service is on the rise, featuring much-discussed exclusives like The Handmaid's Tale, and a variety of favorites that were once Netflix-exclusive, like The X-Files, Bob's Burgers, and 30 Rock.

With many major publishers ready to support Switch, future looks very good for the company and its handheld.

Starting today when the Switch eShop updates you'll be able to download the Hulu app.

Nintendo Switch owners can download the Hulu app for their console directly from the Nintendo eShop. An official page for the program has been released, but it is not online at the time of this writing. 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.
