Video on-demand streaming service Wuaki.tv will be pre-installed on all Tesco hudl2 tablets. The supermarket’s own-brand model is currently the second best-selling tablet on the market, according to the VoD service. Wuaki.tv will also be promoted as one of the ‘Top Apps’ available on hudl.
Using the Android hudl device, users are now able to purchase, rent and watch movies directly through Wuaki.tv. Once a user has signed up to Wuaki.tv, they can also view movies and TV shows from their library on other devices, including smart TVs, games consoles, and smartphones. To entice new users to the service, consumers can buy their first movie at a 90 per cent discount from a selection of new release and classic movies.
“We’re delighted to be the chosen provider for on demand content. To be partnering with Tesco in the UK is a fantastic opportunity for our organisation”, said Vincent Petersen, UK country director at Wuaki.tv. “Wuaki.tv offers a great range of content from Hollywood and Europe, including the latest movies from the big screen so we’re positive that hudl users across the UK will really enjoy the content we have available.”
Current hudl users will notice the Wuaki.tv icon appear in the All Apps folder following a hardware update, while all new hudl2 devices will have the service icon pre-installed in their Entertainment folder.
Wuaki.tv offers a selection of the latest film and TV releases every week as well as a collection of classic movies. It is available as an app and desktop service across a number of connected devices, and it also offers users the opportunity to watch mobile content on their main TV via a connected streaming device.
