A sort of Netflix for youngsters, Hopster Pre-school TV and Learning app for Apple's iOS devices will get launched in the UK in November for $8-$10 per month. This ad-free service is being introduced exclusively for children of ages 2-6 years old.
The service for children, Hopster is about to expand operations to include the UK. The new service will target the youngest age group audience (two to six years old) with a variety of stimuli in order to increase their intelligence and enhance their imagination.
Over 800 titles with the greatest concentration of colorful children’s characters are being marketed to the tiny tots. The company is busy making compacts with Nelvana, DHX Media and Millimages. These partners will furnish it with such popular shows as: Babar, Max and Ruby, SuperWhy, Madeline, Paddington Bear and 64 Zoo Lane. And that is just the beginning of the introduction of fresh content on the magical platform.
While Hopster is similar to Netflix, in many ways it is different too. Its emphasis on children’s education is one such factor that sets it apart. As "Hopster is the only safe and ad-free TV and learning app just for kids aged 2-6!"
Interactive learning games meant for inquisitive and curious kids are one thing it excels in. Most of the products and services in society are adult-based, so there was a niche market for children just waiting to be filled. Hopster arrived in the nick of time to fulfill the needs of youngsters for entertainment and fun learning activities.
Hopster plans to go where no other TV service has gone before. Among the team that started Hopster are a couple of people from the Nickelodeon gang. Therefore there is the experience of working with and for children that is going to go into the new startup. It will be a source of true education instead of the meaningless drivel fed to the younger generation on the airwaves.
