Hulu coming to Nintendo Switch

  • Doom Being On Nintendo Switch Is Impressive, But You Probably Shouldn't Play It

With Hulu being the first, we can only assume that many other streaming services will eventually land on the console. Hulu (with live TV) is the first U.S. streaming service to be released on the Switch.

It's now been confirmed by Hulu that the app will be available to download later today on the Nintendo eShop.

The arrival of Hulu, however, likely means that the wait for non-game apps is coming to an end. With Hulu now up and running on the Switch, you can bet that Netflix won't be far behind.

Apple Pay Cash launches in beta
The improvements include a person-to-person payment option with Apple Pay on iMessage, as well as the Apple Pay Cash card. According to TechCrunch , Apple is working with Green Dot to power the financial side of the new service.

But the real reason that Doom works as a handheld game is because it is astonishing that this shooter can work on the Switch at all.

This is hopefully the first of many streaming and premium content apps to come to the system, especially since Nintendo already provided several options on their previous consoles. This isn't some weird smartphone port with most of the game replaced with some free-to-play mechanics. 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. It's an inferior version for a much higher price than you can get the PS4, Xbox One, or PC version for. 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. In our view, these are not differentiators. According to Nintendo 90% of Switch owners are male. We will put in the investment and develop for the platform. 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. However, they're available in different packages.

While this is now just a prediction, the Nintendo Switch has been hugely successful since launching earlier this year.
