AfterDawn: Tech news hits 1 million subscribers after surge in the UK

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 29 Dec 2013 16:54 hits 1 million subscribers after surge in the UK Rakuten's on-demand movie and TV streaming service has reached one million subscribers, thanks to a surge in UK users since its launch there in September.
The company says there are now 125,000 UK-based subscribers. The service is only available in Spain, Andorra and the UK.

What makes the service different from major rivals like Netflix, is that Wuaki offers unlimited streaming from a limited catalog and also the option to buy or rent digital titles a la carte. In other words, the company is a mix of Netflix and iTunes.

Rakuten has been adding apps over the past few months, and is now supported on iOS, Android and the Xbox 360 in addition to normal desktop use.
