Hulu

Yesterday, Ben Smith (SVP of Experience at Hulu) revealed that Hulu was currently working on an update for the Hulu app on Nintendo Switch, in order to add touch controls.

Here’s the message in full:

Nintendo was great to work with, giving us early access to hardware and developer documentation that enabled us to be the first video app on Switch. I use it all the time. Biggest feedback that we’ve gotten and that I feel as a regular user is that it would be better if it supported touch. We are currently working with Nintendo on this.

Unfortunately, it’s not clear when that update will be released, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be soon…
