Here's How Doom Runs on Nintendo Switch

Doom Switch Screen

With the recent success of the Switch, Hulu and Nintendo are looking to capitalize by bringing the USA only streaming service to the new console.

The Hulu app is part of list of new releases for Nintendo's Switch console eShop available today. The download is free, but users will need to have a Hulu subscription in order to access content. A decent suite of streaming options is no doubt on its way to the Switch, starting with Hulu.

The Nintendo Switch is impressive in its own way, but it doesn't have almost the power of Sony or Microsoft's consoles, much less a high-end gaming PC. With Hulu now on the Switch you have to imagine Netflix, Amazon, and the rest of the streaming pack won't be far behind. Are you looking forward to more services on the Switch?

Fils-Aime reiterated those thoughts to Kotaku last month, stating that video streaming services are going to come would come to Switch "in due time".

At $59.99 Doom for the Nintendo Switch is somewhat baffling. The old Nintendo Wii and Wii U consoles also had streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube.

More than eight months after launch, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting a bit of functionality that both of its predecessors had and both of its immediate competitors have had since launching in 2013.

The Switch will receive the fully-fledged Hulu app which will include the company's live TV package and on-demand subscription service. Although the company's largest audience is older Millennials (25-34), the streaming service pulls a higher percentage of young millennial subscribers (18-24) than Netflix and Amazon, and its current strategy seems to be focused on continuing to attract this growing demographic.

Modern video game consoles can do a lot more than just play games.
