Wuaki.tv partners with ITV
Video-on-demand streaming service Wuaki.tv is partnering with UK commercial broadcaster ITV in a deal that will see hundreds of hours of fresh content added to Wuaki.tv’s UK service and made available to stream on-demand.
Wuaki.tv users now have access to an extensive catalogue of TV series and movies from ITV, including primetime drama and comedy programmes The Royle Family, Cold Feet, Lewis, Law and Order, Prime Suspect, Endeavour, Lemon La Vida Loca and Titanic. The new content has been added to Wuaki.tv’s catalogue of movies and TV shows, which includes titles from major Hollywood studios and UK distributors.
The new content is available as part of the Wuaki.tv Selection, Wuaki.tv’s subscription streaming service, or for individual rental and purchase. Wuaki.tv Selection subscribers can watch an entire TV series on-demand, while those who may have missed one or two episodes of their favourite series can rent them for a one-off low cost.
“As well as demand for the latest blockbuster movie titles, we do see a real hunger from our users for TV series that they can watch back-to-back on-demand,” commented Jacinto Roca, Founder and CEO of Wuaki.tv. “ITV is a huge player in the UK and well known for quality drama and comedy programming. Having their catalogue is a great boost for our service.”
Neale Dennett, Controller of Pay and Distribution at ITV, said the broadcaster was committed to producing and distributing high quality content across commercially viable platforms, with the Wuaki.tv deal giving viewers further opportunities to access ITV content.
A Wuaki Selection subscription is priced at £4.99 (€5.84) per month for a limited period, providing unlimited access to the company’s extensive and regularly-refreshed selection of movies and TV shows. New users can trial the Wuaki Selection service for free for the first month. Newly released titles available to rent and purchase are priced individually. Wuaki.tv users can stream movies and TV shows direct to laptops and PCs, and to Smart TVs, tablets and games consoles through Wuaki.tv’s dedicated apps.
