Wuaki.tv, the fledgling movie and TV streaming platform owned by Rakuten, is today launching an Xbox 360 app for its UK subscribers.
The service, only available in the UK, Spain and Andorra for now, offers two different payment options: unlimited streaming with a monthly subscription, similar to Netflix and LoveFilm Instant, or the option to rent and purchase digital titles individually, akin to iTunes and Vdio.
Wuaki.tv launched iPad and Android apps earlier this month, appeasing the majority of its mobile users. Adding support for a leading video game console such as the Xbox 360, however, is vital if the service has any chance of taking over the living room in the UK.
To sweeten the deal, Wuaki.tv is dropping the price of Wuaki Plus, its unlimited streaming package, from £5.99 to £2.99 per month for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Is that enough to tempt you away from Netflix?

Nope, the selection isn't that much different from lovefilm or Netflix. I stopped my lovefilm.subscription because it's not radically different from Netflix.
Lovefilms app isn't that great either, especially for watching TV series.
However the rental/purchase thing may be useful, as digital copies of movies are ludicrously priced via MS marketplace. --- How to divide by Zero: Find person named Zero, get him/her to divide something. GT/PSN:Hellsteeth30
