As part of the agreement, Hopster will make its video streaming service available on the EON platform via SBB in Serbia and via Telemach in Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Hopster’s TV and mobile experience will help families in the Balkans to keep their youngsters entertained with academically vetted preschool content in a safe and ad-free environment. Available for United Group subscribers to download from the App Store and Google Play, the app will offer children a full learning experience and will complement the TV service with its suite of learning games and children’s songs.

As well as offering customers hundreds of episodes of pre-school favourites such as Peppa Pig, Teletubbies and Cloudbabies in local languages, Hopster will also launch a localised version of its mobile app.

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

“We are really excited about this partnership with United Group as it sees our full experience made available in local language in the Balkans,” remarked Hopster commercial director Claire Hunter Gregson. “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 instil in them a lifelong love of learning.”

In a statement the 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.”
