Hulu is Nintendo Switch's First Media App, Available for Download Now

Doom Switch Screen

The Hulu app is part of list of new releases for Nintendo's Switch console eShop available today. And you certainly can't play Super Mario Odyssey on that spiffy new iPhone. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play.

As of this writing, Hulu is yet to go live on Switch, but hopefully services like Netflix, YouTube and Amazon won't be far behind!

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.

The headlines are enough to keep you scratching your head, but Facebook says it's for a good cause and could keep you safe later. If someone tries to later upload the same image to the social media site, Facebook will recognize the fingerprint and stop them.

It was announced today that Hulu is the Switch's first video streaming service, becoming available for Switch owners to download from the eShop today. Game consoles have had to provide options to watch video ever since the PlayStation 2 integrated a DVD player, and the Switch will inevitably be compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of features. After another strong quarter, the gaming company is now aiming to sell 14 million units by the time the console turns one year old (March 2018), that's up from 10 million it aimed for previously.

Unless Nintendo and Hulu struck an exclusive deal, it only seems like a matter of time until more streaming services make their way to the Nintendo Switch. With Hulu following Japan's NicoNico service, this could all be about to change as the console begins to expand its ecosystem to include other on-demand services. "And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform". If Nintendo hits its mark, that would mean the Switch could best its predecessor's (the Wii U) lifetime sales in a single year. 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. They have a free trial on offer, and returning customers can use either Hulu's live TV package or the traditional Hulu experience on the system.

At $59.99 Doom for the Nintendo Switch is somewhat baffling.
