Hopster launches on DISH in US

Kids pre-school on-demand service Hopster has launched its new entertainment and learning service on DTH pay TV service DISH in the US.

The agreement with the pay TV operator sees the UK-based preschool app make its content available to DISH subscribers across the US.

Priced at US$4.99 a month, Hopster’s SVOD content is now available to DISH customers with an internet-connected Hopper DVR – all generations, Hopper Duo, Joey – all models – or Wally set-top box. DISH customers can also view Hopster programming while on-the-go with the DISH Anywhere app.

The deal follows Hopster’s launch on DISH’s Sling TV OTT TV service last month.

Claire Hunter Gregson, Commercial Director at Hopster says of the deal: “We are really happy to have been picked by DISH as the go-to children’s platform offering safe and educational entertainment for kids five and under. We believe that our content is unique on the service and hope that parents will appreciate the care we put into curating Hopster’s child-friendly video offering.”
