Wuaki.tv Previews an All New User Interface and 4K Content At IFA

Wuaki.tv, a leading movie and TV series streaming service, today announced a new Smart TV app with 4K capabilities will be shown for the first time at the prestigious global trade show IFA, in Berlin.

This new app will enable viewers to watch Wuaki.tv content in 4K ultra high definition (UHD), and provides an all new user interface. LG and Samsung, both existing Wuaki.tv partners, will be demonstrating the app at IFA this week.

4K UHD

Movies shown in 4K offer viewers sharper, more defined images, more colour depth and a much higher resolution, providing the best possible viewing experience in the home. In partnership with Smart TV manufacturers, Wuaki.tv users will be able to watch movies in 4K resolution through selected TV models by the end of the year. The 4K content will be available in Spain and the UK, where Wuaki.tv currently operates, as well as France, Germany and Italy, where Wuaki.tv plans to expand in the near future.

“Offering our content in 4K UHD is one of our most important and relevant strategic moves for Wuaki.tv”, comments Jordi Miró, CTO of Wuaki.tv. “It reflects two of our biggest objectives; to stand out in the market with superior technology, and to offer our viewers the most satisfying movie experience.”

A smart app for a smart TV

In addition to the new 4K content, Wuaki.tv has revealed a new app for the current range of Smart TVs where the service is already available. The new app includes an improved user interface that combines the best features of interactive TV with the performance of the best smart TVs, including:

  • Streamlined e-commerce systems. Wuaki.tv is a pioneer in bringing e-commerce systems from the traditional web environment to the world of interactive TV, helping to revolutionise home entertainment consumption.
  • The ability to easily browse through the different streaming options, rental and purchase, Wuaki.tv offers.
  • A new feature that recommends content based on the user profile, aiming to highlight the best movies and TV shows available on Wuaki.tv for each type of user, improving the experience while making it easier to discover new titles to enjoy

Roger Bretos, Chief Design Officer of Wuaki.tv, comments “We have been working hard to come up with this innovative interface that really matches our user’s requirements. The new UI enhances the user’s experience, is easy to use, and visually pleasant. We accomplished a great challenge for my team so I’m particularly proud of it.”
