Hulu

Recommended Posts

I didn't know about this until today, but Hulu is available as a free download on Switch. You don't have to have any part of Nintendo Online. Just go to the eShop and download the file. App? I'm not sure what you would call it since it's not a game. But if you have a Hulu account and a Switch, there's no reason not to.

I'm not living in America, so forgive me if this sounds a little ignorant as Hulu may be more popular than I think, but if Nintendo was going to have one premium steaming service available on the Switch, why wouldn't it be Netflix or Amazon? I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe that Hulu is the one you really want to make a deal with?

I have no idea what their marketing strategy was. Maybe Hulu wanted less money from Nintendo or vice versa to hook up. One thing I have to give to Hulu at least, is that it has a hell of a lot more TV shows than Netflix. I know nothing about Amazon's streaming service, so I can't comment there. But initially, you would think that they would go for Netflix. But maybe money is what stopped them there. That's all I can come up with.

But if they were going to have one, you would think they would also offer another.

Hulu has limited shows and some of the premium account shows are not exclusive content as they are aired on the TV too. I guess that's why Netflix and few other services are not out on Switch. Who knows they may come in soon.

Mostly region wise license issues. That kind of prevents device wise installation. Considering we can buy from anywhere in the world these days, license issues are getting complex.
