Hulu is the first US streaming-video service to hit Nintendo Switch, which has sold 2.6 million units in the States in the first nine months of its release.

Hulu represents the first video streaming app to hit Nintendo's latest platform in the United States.

News of the Switch getting Hulu app support surfaced over eight months ago. Where it gets hard, is that Hulu itself requires a US-registered IP address and subscription to actually make use of. November 14 is the biggest day for the Switch this month though. Hulu confirmed today that it's the first major US streaming entertainment service to launch an app for Nintendo Switch. With it, you'll see Hulu's usual offering of a trial period. Although some features require Hulu premium subscription.

But not everyone uses Hulu, and our poor friends to the north in Canada don't get Hulu at all.

As the holiday season edges closer, the addition of streaming should make the console more appealing. It does, however, set a good precedent for other more-worldwide services such as Netflix to come to the console soon.

Of course, you can't even get Netflix and Amazon on the Switch yet, but considering how well the Switch continues to sell, I imagine it's only a matter of time until they show up in the eShop. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play.
