    My TV has that. My XB1 that is connected to it also does, as does my iMac that is connected to that TV too, as well as my phone.
    I just want to have that in my Switch also, it is another portable device with a big screen that I can use, e.g. when I'm lying in my bed. Problem?

    Also, I really hope that whenever they bring YouTube they implement sharing videos to YouTube, like you can in XB1. Though I doubt that will happen.

    Now we need Netflix and Youtube and we're sorted! Hope these apps work in both Portable & Docked mode!

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    A Chrome Cast is a much more affordable way to Hulu, and you control it with your smartphone, laptop, anything. And you must have a really old TV to have this situation in the first place. As for in the car, do you really watch Hulu in the car? How many times in a year are you a passenger in your car? You probably don't go on many roadtrips. It's a distraction to the driver, too. Only place this could really work is on a bus or airplane. I mean if it works for you congrats, but I don't think there is a real need for video streaming apps on the Switch.

    Good thing it will be optional. The people who don't think there is a real need for streaming apps, can just not get it.

    I used to have hulu to watch anime, but i stopped, not enough anime that interest me. I just hope the volume is better for the switch than wii u, the game pad had such bad audio. I needed to use a speaker just to even call it good. Still least we have SOMETHING to put that 5GHZ AC wifi to use, watching HD videos. :P

    Does Hulu allow your phone to sync up to it like all the YouTube apps do? If not, they should get on that, back when i used the Youtube app on the standard Wii it was nice to be able to use your phone as a second screen to queue up videos and search, functioning very similar to how chromecast does when connected to the android YouTube app on our phones.

    Not sure yet. Haven't really explored it much. I doubt it though since it would have to emulate a cast device, doubt they'd implement that.

    Suppose that's a good point, I forget that Google owns Youtube, so it makes sense that they would already have the code to quickly implement casting into the YouTube app for every device they put it on.

    I'm really not looking forward to exploits myself, at least not this early. It's a great system with plenty of support. Fans are loving every bit and Nintendo is the loving our money. I'm sure homebrew would be great also. I just don't want to see pirated games and such, so early on.

    I mean you can share video and pictures to Twitter and Facebook right now, so why not video to Youtube?

    How about a proper internet browser? (Typing this from my Wii U as we speak)
