May 28, 2014 11.25 Europe/London By Robert Briel

Wuaki_tvChromecast users in the UK will have access to Wuaki.tv’s catalogue of movies and TV series directly on their TV set.

To celebrate this launch, Wuaki.tv is offering every customer who purchases a full series from Wuaki.tv’s HBO catalogue £20 off a Chromecast (RRP £30.00). Box sets from the HBO catalogue include Game of Thrones, True Detective and The Sopranos. In Wuaki.tv’s home country Spain Chromecast support has been around for some time.

Over 80% of Wuaki.tv users currently stream content through a smart TV, and since the introduction of Chromecast the company has seen significant demand for Chromecast support from those users who do not currently own a smart TV.

Wuaki.tv users can stream content directly from a Chrome browser on their PC or laptop, or through Wuaki.tv’s dedicated Android and iOS applications on tablets and smartphones, which will also act as a remote control for the television.

“Google’s Chromecast is a fantastic device, and we’ve already seen it is proving popular amongst our users in the UK and Spain” commented Josep Mitjà, co-founder of Wuaki.tv.

“A high number of our users stream content directly to their Smart TVs, around 80%, through our dedicated apps. This agreement with Google to support Chromecast means even more Wuaki.tv users can enjoy our high-quality catalogue direct through the big screen, as well as on tablets, smartphones and games consoles.”
