Hopster launches across western Balkans with United Group

Preschool kids service Hopster has struck an agreement with western Balkans service provider United Group to launch its offering in the region.

Hopster will make its video streaming service available on the EON platform via United Group-owned SBB in Serbia and via Telemach in Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Hopster’s launch will make episodes of shows such as Peppa PigTeletubbies and Cloudbabies available across the region in local language variants. Hopster is also launching a localised version of its mobile app, which will be available or United Group subscribers to download from the App Store and Google Play.

The Hopster VOD service will be available for free for all United Group subscribers during February, and the mobile app from February 1 to  April 30. After this promotional period, Hopster will join EON’s collection of TV services and will be included in a number of packages.

Claire Hunter Gregson, commercial director at Hopster said: “We are really excited about this partnership with United Group as it sees our full experience made available in local language in the Balkans. As well as our curated learning shows, we are happy to be able to offer our interactive learning app to EON customers in the region. We hope children will love our beautiful digital playground and that it will instill in them a lifelong love of learning.”

United Group said: “As a company that strives to meet the needs of their users, it is our great pleasure to have Hopster become a part of our TV packages. Nowadays, with more and more children growing up with smart devices in their hands, sitting in front of TV, it is important to offer them a variety of both educational and quality content. Hopster offers an interactive learning programme and hand-picked high-quality shows that will bring the whole family together.”
