Kids’ VOD service Hopster has launched worldwide on Android devices.
The subscription media service, which aims to help kids learn through shows they love, provides young viewers with an ad-free interface within which to watch TV series, as well as play a suite of interactive learning games, which are all based around an in-house curriculum (based on the US NAEYC guidelines and the UK’s EYFS framework). There are over 500 episodes of shows such as Max & Ruby, Poppy Cat, Toby’s Travelling Circus, and 64 Zoo.
In addition to its launch on Android, Hopster has also partnered with Samsung to provide an exclusive offer to Galaxy device owners. Any UK customer with a compatible Galaxy tablet or smartphone will be able to download Hopster from the Galaxy Gifts store and receive a 90-day trial to enjoy the full Hopster experience for free. The offer begins rolling out to over 100 countries today.
To unlock all of Hopster, parents can trial a Club Hopster subscription through Samsung Galaxy Gifts for 90 days with no obligation to purchase. After the trial, Club Hopster is just £3.99 a month, cancellable anytime.
“We’re really excited to be launching globally on Android and offering this exclusive deal to Samsung Galaxy owners,” says Nick Walters, founder and CEO of Hopster. “Earlier this year we launched on the fantastic range of Samsung Smart TVs and we are delighted to be working with them on their smartphones and tablets too.”
Hopster’s ongoing expansion follows strong success for the service on Apple devices and the launch of a rival child-friendly subscription service by Amazon, as competition for kids’ online attention increases.
