Saw glossy ad on tv. Downloaded app. Seems expensive. £5.99 just to watch a film? Who pays that? If this is really wuaki with a different name then not interested anyway.
Rakuten (Wuaki) did have lots of positives. A large catalogue, plenty of playback options, a relatively limited but improving range of UV titles, Chromecast, support staff who engaged with you, and they seemed keen on developing. It was the UV support that was absolutely key though. If a title doesn't come with the UV safety net then the chances are Google get my business unless there are ridiculously good deals to be had, so it was already Wuaki's weakness. So I was a bit surprised to discover UV support had been withdrawn a month or two after it happened and without so much as a courtesy email. So that leaves me with a handful of titles I am unlikely to be adding to too often.
Can't use points through the app so had to use the website then come into the app to view. Once watching the movie I can't disable subtitles no matter what I try.
Hate not having the opportunity to watch a movie in its original language.
Early days yet but it's going to b a contender for Google Pla¥ Movies I think? Regards Jame$.
