After signing off a whole raft of exciting multi-territory content deals with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, Millimages, CAKE, and EarthTree Media, our chart-topping kids service will start delighting little thinkers in over 100 countries with a global English language version – starting this April!
G’day Oz, As-salamu alaykum Dubai, Namaste India
The countries we’ll be arriving in include Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, India, Dubai, and many more across Asia, Africa, and Europe. We land with over 600 hand-picked episodes from global family favourites including Max & Ruby, Mouk, Louie, Babar, Wanda and the Alien, and Poppy Cat (different countries will have different shows, so stay tuned for more news).
Kids all over the world will also be able to learn English (and more) with our suite of games. As you might know, all our games and interactive experiences are built on the Hopster Curriculum, which in turn is based on multiple international curricula. These games add depth to the video experience and ensure that using Hopster isn’t just fun, but also educational and stimulating.
Nick, our founder and CEO, has this to say: “All over the world, a new generation of kids is finding things to delight them on mobile. In India alone, more families have smartphones than digital TV, so there’s huge potential for a mobile-first service like Hopster. We’ve taken a global approach to our global launch, and handpicked the best shows from around the world: for example Aesop’s Theatre started life in Korea, Mouk in France, Wanda and the Alien in the UK, and Learn to Draw Minis is a cool Scandinavian indie hit!”
Good news for existing users: Use Hopster abroad!
If you’re an existing Hopster user in the UK or Ireland, this is also great news for you: when you travel with Hopster in the future, you’ll be able to stream Hopster shows in over 100 countries using your good old subscription from back home!
And if you haven’t tried Hopster yet, what are you waiting for??
