“So how does compare against the competition?”
There’s a new rival to Netflix and Amazon Prime (previously known as Lovefilm) in the UK streaming media sweepstakes: Wuaki.TV. This streaming service from e-
What Makes Wuaki.TV Unique?
Wuaki.TV’s unique selling point is that as well as offering a subscription streaming service, Wuaki Plus, that promises “hundreds of hours of entertainment” for a fixed monthly price of £5.99, Wuaki.TV users also get the chance to rent or purchase new releases as they hit the shelves. Wuaki TV claims to be the only company offering this level of flexibility in the UK.
Wuaki.TV combines an unlimited streaming subscription service like Netflix with a pay-
However, Netflix currently has a larger database of TV shows and films that can be streamed as part of the subscription service.
Wuaki.TV’s steaming service currently costs £1 less than Amazon Prime and you have the option to buy or rent movies or TV shows which do not feature in Wuaki.TV Selection’s content library. Amazon Prime and Wuaki.TV differ in their approach to watching shows or films on-
Again, Wuaki.TV’s content library is lacking compared to Lovefilm’s. Have a look and see what Amazon Prime offer for free by clicking here.
Wuaki.TV vs. Blinkbox
Blinkbox allows you to rent and buy without subscription. In this sense, it’s in competition with Wuaki.TV’s on-
NOW TV’s biggest selling point is that it offers non-
If you are completely new to online movie streaming services then I recommend you try either the Amazon Prime free trial (click the link given above) or the Now TV Free Trial. If you have been using Netflix or Amazon Prime and are looking for something a little different I still recommend Now TV.
Wuaki.TV offers a wide range of viewing and payment options which may suit many people. However, some subscribers to the monthly service may find themselves paying more each month to buy/rent films or TV shows which aren’t included in the Wuaki Plus entertainment library. In this respect, the “unlimited access” of Wuaki Plus can become quite limiting and the Wuaki.TV/Wuaki Plus services don’t quite gel together.
The database of films and shows available on Wuaki.TV is also somewhat small. Whilst it does host a respectable amount of videos from big name Hollywood studios and TV production companies, and could provide anyone with the perfect film for a Saturday night in, real film and television buffs may be left wanting. I was unable to find many of my favourite films (classics and modern classics) which are readily available on Amazon Prime.
Wuaki.TV is still in its Beta design stages and, with the financial backing and expertise of Rakuten, we can expect bigger and better things to come from this still-
Thus, here is my final verdict. Wuaki TV fully has the potential to become the best online movie streaming and box office service in the UK. However, it isn’t quite there yet. And if you’re looking for an alternative to Netflix or Amazon Prime I do highly recommend you have a look at Now TV first by clicking the link above.
If brand new, I would recommend you sign up for the Amazon Prime free trial or, if you watch a hell of a lot of movies and are happy to spend a little bit more, click the link to Now TV above. Enjoy the other, more well-

As explained there is a 30 day trial for Wuaki TV and it’s main competitors. So why not try them out until you find the one that best suits you.
Please also refer to my other pages shown below where further comparisons with the main competitors have taken place. There are also links to other 30 days free trials which are available.
