Parent Category: 10-08-2013
The Wuaki.tv movie and TV streaming service is going mobile in the UK with the launch of apps for iPad and Android, allowing consumers access to its entire catalogue while on-the-go.
Users can browse the catalogue and choose to rent or purchase the latest new releases on an á la carte basis direct to their device. Those with a Wuaki Plus subscription will have unlimited streaming access to movies and TV series from a range of Hollywood studios including Warner Bros, Disney, Sony Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and major UK and international distributors, including the BBC.
Previously purchased and rented movies and TV series will also be automatically available through the 'My Library' section once a user signs into their account, and personal wish lists will also be synced. The Android application automatically adjusts screen resolution to provide the best picture quality on different screen sizes.
The release is the first example of Wuaki.tv's expansion onto new device platforms, following the company's UK beta launch last month. Support for games consoles and smart TVs will follow over the summer months.
"When we launched in the UK we promised to bring further device support to tablets, games consoles and smart TVs, so our customers can access great movies and TV shows on any device they choose," said Jacinto Roca, CEO of Wuaki.tv. "The iPad and Android apps are the first example of this, and we'll be supporting more
devices very soon. We know people don't want to be tied to just one device and aim to give our users access their favourite content on all their devices."
A Wuaki Plus subscription is priced at £5.99 per month for unlimited access, or users can rent or purchase individually priced newly released titles.
