Nintendo did not intend to create an entertainment center like Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Instead, Switch is a game console that you can play docked or as a handheld. It’s a great platform, especially for on-the-go gamers and Nintendo fans for many years. But the game-first theme seems to keep the multimedia app library to a minimum. You will not find Netflix or Disney Plus on eShop, but there are some options. In this guide, we will show you how to get Hulu to Nintendo Switch.

When you have Hulu on your Nintendo Switch, you can watch the service in TV mode by connecting your Switch to a TV, table mode or handheld mode. Another thing to note is that Hulu is only available on the Nintendo Switch for US users.
