Spain-based streaming service Wuaki.tv will launch Ultra-HD content on December 1st in France and Germany.
Deals for 4K content in its other European markets, including the UK and Spain, have yet to be agreed – but the company anticipates arrangements to be in place in early 2015.
Jordi Miró, chief technology officer at Wuaki.tv, commented: “More and more of our customers are beginning to demand movies in 4K, as TVs with the technology become commonplace in the home. We expect 4K will become increasingly popular towards the end of the year and into 2015, as consumers in Europe buy new TVs around Christmas time, upgrade to Smart TVs, and 4K prices begin to drop as more devices come to the market. We’ll be ready for this when it happens so, as soon as a 4K TV is plugged in for the first time, everyone will have access to a quality catalogue of on-demand 4K content from Wuaki.tv.”
