Britain’s not exactly a sporting superpower these days, but one thing we are great at is making movies, and now Wuaki.tv has added hundreds of new British films to its on-demand catalogue.
Featured directors include Hollywood faves Danny Boyle, Guy Ritchie, Tom Hooper and Edgar Wright, home life chroniclers Ken Loach and Mike Leigh, and rising talent like Noel Clarke.
Wuaki.tv said it’s chosen films as the best examples of British cinema, with British casts and directors, and were mainly filmed and produced in Britain.
“We know movie fans are always interested in seeing the latest releases, but there’s a whole lot more than just Hollywood blockbusters that they enjoy watching – and we’ve now got the best of British on Wuaki.tv” said Simon Homent, UK content director at Wuaki.tv.
“We have hundreds of new titles being added, everything from The Beatles having A Hard Day’s Night, to paranormal goings on in the West Country in The Borderlands.”
The movies are divided into two categories: Classic and Modern; and the British acting talent on board includes Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth, Helen Mirren, Dominic Cooper, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sean Bean, Tim Roth, Michael Sheen, Ray Winstone and Danny Dyer.
Classics include A Hard Day’s Night, My Name Is Joe, The Ipcress File, The Man Who Sued God and Lawrence Of Arabia.
Viewers looking for modern movies can watch films on the streaming service such as The Borderlands, Conversations With Other Women, A Lonely Place To Die, The King’s Speech and Age Of Heroes.
He added that Wuaki.tv is working on other deals to bring more British movies to the platform in the future.
The service is available on a variety of platforms including Xbox games consoles, smart TVs, tablets, mobile phones, laptops and PCs, with support for Google Chromecast. Rentals start from £2.49 per title for 48 hours.
