When You're Ready to Watch Hulu

While the Hulu app is free for download through the Nintendo eStore, it requires a subscription to watch all of your favorite shows. If you don't already have a Hulu membership, then you can opt-in for a free trial. Just keep in mind that you will start to get charged the monthly membership fee when your trial is over.

That membership fee will also differ depending on which tier of service you choose. The four options range from $8 to $44 each month, depending on whether you are willing to suffer commercials or want access to live tv.

You'll also need a decent internet connection to stream your favorite shows. 1.5Mbps is required for standard definition playback, while high definition will need a download speed of 3.0Mbps. If you're hoping to watch live tv through Hulu, then you'll need a download speed of 8Mbps or higher for quality resolution streaming.

  1. Open Hulu.

  2. Search for the show you want to watch.

  3. Select the show and start watching.
