The Nintendo Switch always seemed like the ideal console to pull double duty as a portable video player, but so far there's been a conspicuous lack of any streaming service.
The Nintendo Switch launched in early March but came without any of the streaming services offered on other consoles, even the Wii U. This has been a common talking point among potential buyers of the console.
Starting today, Hulu subscribers can use their Nintendo Switch to stream their favorite content from Hulu no matter where they might be.
Right now, Hulu is only available for U.S. customer, according to the official Nintendo page, but this could be the beginning for several other streaming apps coming to the handheld in the future.

With Nicaragua signing the Paris Agreement in October, this leaves the U.S.as the only country to oppose the accord. Despite the announcement the French foreign ministry said Syria was not invited to the Paris gathering.
As the holiday season edges closer, the addition of streaming should make the console more appealing. 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. "You'll be able to enjoy both our traditional on-demand subscription as well as our Hulu with Live TV plan and watch live and on-demand programming from more than 50 of the top news, sports and entertainment channels". Unlike Hulu, NetFlix has a much larger userbase worldwide instead of just North America. In our view, these are not differentiators.
