MOVIE AND TV STREAMING SERVICE Wuaki.tv might have only launched about a month ago, but the startup released iOS and Android apps today for viewing the firm's catalogue of movies and TV shows from mobile devices.
Launched in June, Wuaki.tv is a hybrid movie and TV streaming service that costs punters from £2.99 a month, offering an amalgam of subscriptions and on-demand options.
However, this offer is available only to the first 75,000 subscribers and costs £5.99 per month for those subscribing after the offer expires on 13 September.
Wuaki.tv CEO Jacinto Roca told The INQUIRER that the app rollout today won't signal the end of updates, as the firm plans on expanding supported hardware even further very soon.
"The iPad and Android apps are the first devices we're supporting in the UK beyond the browser, and we'll be following this up in the coming weeks with support for games consoles and smart TVs," she said.
"In our home market of Spain the apps are used heavily by our customers, and we expect to see a similar reaction in the UK."
Bought by Japanese Internet company Rakuten, which also saved Play.com from entering administration, Wuaki.TV launched in Spain in 2009, steadily generating a user base of 600,000.
The firm noted that both Android and iOS apps require a WiFi connection to allow movie and TV shows to be streamed. µ
