Nintendo recently announced that the app Hulu is available on the Switch as of November 9th. The Switch app has all the features available based on your Hulu subscription, including DVR and Live TV streaming. This is great if you're someone who doesn't own a tablet or iPad, but you would love to watch TV on a bigger screen than your cell phone.
If you don't have a Hulu subscription, it's $7.99/ month for the Limited Commercials plan, $11.99/ month for the No Commercial plan, and $39.99 for the Live TV plan. If $39.99/ month sounds like the plan for you, the channels that are included are FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, ESPN, FX, NBCSN, FS1, History Channel and TNT. The other plans don't include the Live TV, but still have a lot of shows you can stream from your Switch.

When the Switch was released back in March, there was no talk about the console ever getting any streaming service. For the past few months, it has been strictly games coming to the console. With Hulu now on the Switch, it is only a matter of time before other services like Netflix and YouTube follow.
