To celebrate this launch, Wuaki.tv is offering every customer who purchases a full series from Wuaki.tv’s HBO catalogue £20 off a Chromecast (RRP £30.00). Box sets from the HBO catalogue include Game of Thrones, True Detective and The Sopranos. In Wuaki.tv’s home country Spain Chromecast support has been around for some time.
Over 80% of Wuaki.tv users currently stream content through a smart TV, and since the introduction of Chromecast the company has seen significant demand for Chromecast support from those users who do not currently own a smart TV.
Wuaki.tv users can stream content directly from a Chrome browser on their PC or laptop, or through Wuaki.tv’s dedicated Android and iOS applications on tablets and smartphones, which will also act as a remote control for the television.
“Google’s Chromecast is a fantastic device, and we’ve already seen it is proving popular amongst our users in the UK and Spain” commented Josep Mitjà, co-founder of Wuaki.tv.
“A high number of our users stream content directly to their Smart TVs, around 80%, through our dedicated apps. This agreement with Google to support Chromecast means even more Wuaki.tv users can enjoy our high-quality catalogue direct through the big screen, as well as on tablets, smartphones and games consoles.”
