Kids on-demand service Hopster has secured a distribution partnership with pay TV operator Sky New Zealand, giving subscribers to streaming services Neon and Sky Go access to Hopster’s educational preschool shows, video books and music videos.
Launching in November, the service will give pre-schoold children access to shows such as Molang and Hopster Studios animated originals which includes science-based show Clever Brenda, fast-paced Grimm’s Fairy Tales series Two Minute Tales and empathy-focused show Saturday Club.
Nick Walters, Founder and CEO at Hopster said: “We couldn’t be more pleased to be launching with Sky in New Zealand. It’s been a long held ambition of ours to build our distribution in the region – and with Sky New Zealand we’ve found the perfect partner. We can’t wait to get Hopster’s unique content and award-winning mobile app into the hands of Kiwis- and to start developing the service with local content to offer an even richer experience. This could be the start of something big.”
