Pre-schooler TV platform Hopster goes global

UK based kids TV platform Hopster has been launched in over 100 new countries following a raft of multi-territory content deals.

The launch will see the platform arrive in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, India, Dubai, and many more countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe, with over 600 hand-picked episodes from global family favourites including Max & Ruby, Mouk, Louie, Babar, Wanda and the Alien, and Poppy Cat.

“All over the world, a new generation of kids is finding things to delight them on mobile,” comments Nick Walters, Hopster founder and CEO. “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!”

The global version will initially launch on iOS, with country-specific price points to be confirmed. Further content partners will also be announced closer to launch.
