12th July 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, July 12, 2013: Rakuten, one of the world’s largest e-commerce companies, today announced the beta launch of Wuaki.tv in the UK. Wuaki.tv is the UK’s film and TV streaming service to offer both rental and purchase options, and a subscription service, and aims to compete in the UK marketplace with this unique hybrid model. The site launches in beta today, while additional content and device support is added over the next few months.

Wuaki.tv offers access to an extensive line-up of thousands of hours of film and TV programmes through any Internet-connected PC or laptop. Wuaki.tv’s catalogue includes content from major Hollywood Studios, including Warner Bros., Disney, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and major UK and international distributors, including the BBC. Content available to rent or buy includes the latest Hollywood titles, such as Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful and Lincoln. The Wuaki Plus subscription service offers a regularly-refreshed line-up of great movies, from blockbusters to classic films, and highly-rated TV series such as The Tudors andDoctor Who.

Jacinto Roca, Founder and CEO, Wuaki.tv, said, Streaming services have grown significantly in the UK, and we see a huge gap to offer a hybrid of the traditional subscription and a la carte models. Our Wuaki Plus subscription offers a quality service at an attractive monthly rate. However, we know many people also want to rent or buy the very latest new releases, which are usually not available on subscription streaming services immediately, and others simply prefer to have on-demand on an a la carte basis. With Wuaki users can have both, and pick-and-choose what they want, when they want.
