U.K.-based preschooler interactive TV and learning platform Hopster has expanded its offerings to Ireland.
Hopster is now available via the Irish App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users, and to Panasonic Smart TV users in the new year. The app is free to download, and comes with a rotating selection of one to five free episodes per day and fun learning games. To unlock all of Hopster’s content – hundreds of episodes of 23 shows – families can subscribe.
Supporting its Irish launch, Hopster has also signed local indie gem Rockabye Island, produced by Magpie6 Media and Monster Entertainment, highlighting its commitment to delivering the best and most relevant content to preschoolers and families.
Since launching in the UK a year ago, Hopster has seen strong growth, with 200,000 U.K. families having downloaded its chart-topping iOS app to date. Recent months have also seen the platform expand to smart TVs and set-top boxes, following the announcement in October about a series of major deals with Freesat, EE TV, Panasonic, and Amazon Fire TV.
