Movie and TV series streaming service Wuaki.tv is partnering with content distribution group Curzon World, bringing some of Europe’s best independent, art house and foreign language cinema to Wuaki.tv’s on-demand catalogue.
The partnership means a wide range of content from Curzon World’s three distribution labels – Curzon Film World Releasing, Artificial Eye and Chelsea Films – will be available on Wuaki.tv. This includes Academy Award winning Best Foreign Language Film of the Year titles The Great Beauty and Amour, as well as Blue is the Warmest Colour and titles from renowned directors Lars Von Trier and Michael Haneke.
Wuaki.tv says the partnership is the latest example of the service adding to its expanding international content, following a partnership earlier in the year with Arrow Films. While other streaming services focus predominantly on Hollywood blockbusters, Wuaki.tv is setting itself apart by bringing together the best in international movies from all over the globe.
“Adding such respected, award-winning titles to the catalogue is the latest example of how we’re making Wuaki.tv the single best destination for all movie lovers and fans” comments Simon Homent, European Content Director at Wuaki.tv. “We know we’ll always have users who want the latest Hollywood blockbuster releases, so we’ll always have them. That said, as more people get used to on-demand services, there’s an increasing number who want a wider choice on titles. The addition of award-winning international content will continue to set Wuaki.tv apart from those competitors who do not support local content as strongly as we do.”
Wuaki.tv’s catalogue includes an extensive range of movies and TV series from major Hollywood studios and international distributors, as well as the BBC and ITV. Titles rented or purchased on Wuaki.tv can be watched on a range of devices including Smart TVs, games consoles, tablets, smartphones, laptops, PCs and Chromecast. Rentals on Wuaki.tv start from £2.49 per title.
