TalkTalk, Hopster content deal
July 2, 2018
Hopster, the preschool learning and entertainment app, has partnered with TalkTalk, the UK telco, to bring the kids SVoD service to TalkTalk TV.
TalkTalk is the first UK TV provider to make Hopster content directly available as part of its Kids TV subscription. In addition to ten of the UK’s biggest kids’ channels, TalkTalk TV customers who have the Kids Boost can now enjoy 500 Hopster episodes on demand from shows including the popular animated underwater series, Octonauts, segments from the US’s longest running children’s series, Sesame Street and Hopster’s original animation, Two Minute Tales.
Kids can watch Hopster’s educational content on-demand on the TV screen and on the go across multiple devices via the TalkTalk TV app. What’s more, the TalkTalk TV Kids Remote which has been designed especially for kids, transports them into a new Kids Zone which features 500 on-demand episodes of Hopster content and other popular kids’ shows.
Nick Walters, CEO at Hopster, says: “Our mission is to make entertainment safe and educational for preschoolers so we couldn’t be happier about our partnership with TalkTalk. We are glad to bring our carefully handpicked shows to TalkTalk TV subscribers as part of their Kids Boost package and give parents the peace of mind that while watching our content, their kids will always learn and discover something new.”
Aleks Habdank, Managing Director of TalkTalk TV says: “We’re delighted to have forged a new relationship with Hopster. Research shows that TV is still kids’ favourite place to watch content and now thanks to our partnership with Hopster we can offer more on demand kids shows than ever before. This new agreement coupled with our bespoke TalkTalk TV Kids Remote, cements TalkTalk TV as a compelling choice for families across the UK, offering what really matters – affordable entertainment the way they want it.”
TalkTalk TV Kids Boost subscribers have access to the newly added Hopster content as well as a raft of additional kids’ channels including Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and Boomerang for a monthly rolling cost of just £6 with no long-term commitment.
