Wuaki reaches 1 million
December 23, 2013
Wuaki tv, the European movie and TV streaming service, announced significant growth in the UK, with more than 125,000 new users signing up to the streaming service since its launch by the end of September. Combined with Wuaki.tv’s Spanish user base, the new users have pushed the company’s total customer base to one million globally.
Wuaki.tv was the first to offer a unique streaming subscription and rental service in the UK. Wuaki.tv users can choose between a monthly subscription to the Wuaki.tv Selection, a regularly-refreshed catalogue of movies and TV series from major Hollywood studios and UK distributors, or rental and purchase of newly released blockbusters and TV shows through a single service.
On average, Wuaki.tv has seen a month-on-month increase of almost 50 per cent in user numbers since the end of the service’s beta period in September. The increase has also been driven by the company’s TV advertising campaign, fronted by former Olympic high jump athlete Dick Fosbury.
“The response to Wuaki.tv from UK users has been phenomenal, and shows we were correct to select it as the first market to begin our European expansion,” comments Jacinto Roca, Founder and CEO of Wuaki.tv. “It’s interesting to see the difference in subscription versus rental streaming. From the top titles streamed since our full launch in September, it is clear families are using the Wuaki.tv Selection very often during weekdays. Weekends are dominated by new releases, mainly driven by peak rentals on Friday and Saturday evenings.”
A Wuaki Selection subscription is priced at £4.99 (€5.80) 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. For more details please visit Wuaki.tv.
