Over 70% movies and TV series streamed from Wuaki.tv in Spain, the company's home market, comes through Smart TVs, with UK viewers set to following this trend.

The streaming service, owned by Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten , is currently live in the UK and Spain with more European launches slated for France, Germany and Italy next year.
