DOOM Nintendo Switch review–A fully featured package with big visual compromises

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

In its weekly press release announcing new releases, Nintendo revealed today that Hulu will become the console's first video streaming app outside of the Japan-only Niconico app.

The video streaming app that arrives first to the Nintendo Switch is not Netflix, however, as the distinction goes to Hulu.


The free app can now be downloaded from the eShop and will only require a subscription to the service itself. "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". A decent suite of streaming options is no doubt on its way to the Switch, starting with Hulu. Helu's release on the Switch might mean other streaming apps might be released for the Switch.

Since its debut, the Switch has focused primarily on games, in wake of the underwhelming sales and life the Wii successor, the Wii U had.


Nintendo Switch is getting Doom this week, and that has a lot of people curious about how the technical wonder runs on the hybrid home/handheld console. We were curious to see if all the crisp, bloody picture remains with the Switch version, or whether it's a muddled mess.

Sadly, none of these applications have yet received love and attention on the Nintendo Switch, not to mention free services such as BBC iPlayer (although that does require a TV Licence).


The Nintendo Switch Hulu app is now live from the Nintendo Eshop. When other services like Netflix, Amazon and YouTube arrive, the Nintendo Switch will not only be a portable gaming console, but also a portable entertainment device. That said, there are ways to access the service if you really, really want.
