Hulu Currently Testing Live TV Streams At 60 FPS On The Nintendo Switch

Hulu is the first video streaming application for the Nintendo Switch in North America and the company is looking to make some changes to benefit consumers. The company announced on Reddit that they are testing Live TV streams at 60fps on the Nintendo Switch and a variety of other platforms. The feature is being rolled out in phases by the company. Here’s what they had to say:

By offering our live streams at this frame rate, our goal is to provide a significantly more immersive viewing experience for Live TV. You’ll notice the difference most when watching sports or news, so we’re excited to have this in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics and March Madness (NBC and Turner channels, respectively).



    1. No telling. Maybe they want to give Switch owners an app that isn’t broken on day 1. Maybe Nintendo and Hulu made a deal to give Hulu a headstart on the system before Netflix comes and runs them over. Maybe Nintendo is holding them back til they give an app that isn’t broken. So many reasons (or excuses) to not be on the Switch right now.


  1. Does Hulu’s Switch app not allow live TV streams yet? Or is that particular service of Hulu broken on their Switch app?


    1. I don’t actually know, but they talk about “noticing the difference” in sports and news so I would gather there is an existing 30fps live TV stream.
