Wuaki also features content from Warner Bros., Disney, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment as well as homegrown classics from the BBC and ITV. 

Jacinto Roca, Wuaki.tv founder and CEO said: “At Wuaki.tv, we are committed to providing the best possible user experience and HD quality plays an important role within that. Our users are increasingly used to seeing the latest movies in high definition on their Smart TVs, consoles, and other devices, and now they can add their PC or laptop to this list too.” 

As well as letting Windows 8.1 users stream titles from thw Wuaki site, the new app also lets you pin entire movies, TV series or individual episodes to the Start menu, so they can be watched without firing up the full app.  

Prices for movies on Wuaki start at £2.99 to rent. Prices vary from £3.49 to £4.49 depending on the title. Movies are priced from £10.99 to buy in SD and £13.99 for HD copies. TV shows are usually priced per series and are only available to buy. Prices start at £13.99 per series.  

When you purchase content from Wuaki, you’re able to stream it on any devices

Right now, new Wuaki customers that buy an HBO TV series can get a £20 discount off of a Chromecast, Google’s smart TV streaming stick. Seeing as Chromecast normally costs £30 you’re effectively picking up one of this year’s most talked about tech products for a tenner.  

You can download Wuaki for Windows 8.1 at Apps for Windows now.
