Wuaki TV offers movie and television show rentals by allowing you to stream them when you wish. Your purchases can remain in your library for 3 years, which is a lot longer than many sites offer, and rental can be viewed for 48 hours from the time you begin watching. They also offer a “selection” service, which allows you unlimited access to a pre-selected range of TV shows and movies, for £5.99 a month.
Wuaki.tv is a very flexible system as you can use it on tablets, TVs and games consoles, as well as laptops and desktops. This is great if you wish to use it at home or on the move, although you will need an internet connection as they do not currently allow you to download movies.
Their choice of TV shows and movies is fairly average, but you should be able to find most of the things you're looking for as long as nothing is too abstract. Because this is a streaming-only service the quality can often depend on a number of factors including the quality of your internet connection, which isn't always ideal . However, a lot of the more recent movies are available in HD and they do provide sales from time to time, giving a decent discount on top movies in comparison with some of their peers.
The site is well organised, offering interesting categories such as “last chance to rent”, which are movies and shows they'll be losing from their catalogue in the near future. However, there's not much in the way of movie fan trivia or articles, and this is disappointing. They also don't appear to offer any rewards scheme for returning members.
In terms of price, most of the rentals are around industry standard, although they do have sales which can offer good discounts if you're interested in that particular movie. If you're keen to try out movies and shows that you might not already know about then the “selection” service provides you with a limited range of viewing options for a monthly fee. This is a good idea but is a little pricey when compared with sites such as Netflix. However if you are interested in the Wuaki TV service then it would be a good idea to take a look at the website to see which shows and movies are currently included.
