Leading European OTT Wuaki.tv has announced significant company growth in the UK during 2014.
Wuaki.tv now has over 400,000 registered users in the UK as of December 2014, a 220% increase over the last 12 months. Company revenues have also increased 212% during this period.
Wuaki.tv has also grown at the global level, following further expansion into Europe during 2014. The total user base now stands at 1.85 million, an 85% increase over last year, and global turnover has increased by 90%.
When compared to 2013, streaming to smartphones and tablets is far outpacing growth on other devices. The total number of movies and TV series streamed to mobile devices has increased by 305% in the last year, indicating people are increasingly watching long-form content on a smaller screen.
During 2014, the blockbuster Martin Scorsese hit The Wolf of Wall Street was the most streamed title, followed by children’s movie Frozen and Maleficent.
“We are very proud of how well Wuaki.tv continues to be received in the UK, and across the new European countries where we have launched,” comments Jacinto Roca, founder and CEO of Wuaki.tv. “Our mission to empower the user to choose not only the content they want to watch, but also when and on what platform is clearly paying off.”
