It was...until today! We are very proud to announce that Hulu is the first United States streaming entertainment service to debut on Nintendo Switch!

The Nintendo Switch launch was one of the most bare-bones in recent memory - the system even lacked basic video streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube (which the Wii, Wii U, and even 3DS had).

The free app can now be downloaded from the eShop and will only require a subscription to the service itself. In that report, it unceremoniously reveals that Hulu will be going live on the Nintendo Switch eShop later today. With the Switch being a portable HD screen, streaming services would definitely be a welcome addition. Now Switch owners will be able to watch Hulu exclusives, such as the Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale, as well as shows catalogued only on Hulu, like the Emmy-winning This is Us, both at home or on the go. While I was plenty happy to have the hybrid console be a dedicated gaming machine, more than a few people were a little upset that they couldn't stream Netflix or Hulu to the device. In our view, these are not differentiators. While the Switch's screen isn't the highest resolution at 720p, the 6.2-inch display is larger than that on most phones. We will put in the investment and develop for the platform.

Square Enix believes that Switch has created a new space for video games. If Hulu is here today, we'd have to imagine that Netflix and company aren't that far behind but you never know.
