May 7, 2015

London-based preschool educational TV service Hopster is once again expanding its reach as it heads to Apple TV.

With the start-up company’s iOS platform recently launched in more than 100 territories, the move to Apple TV aims to provide users with a seamless experience from small to big screen.

Those already on-board for the monthly US$6.06 (UK£3.99) service can login to Hopster on Apple TV using their existing credentials. For those interested in checking it out, Hopster is offering a selection of free episodes from Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, Thomas & Friends, Pingu, SuperWHY! and Max & Ruby, as well as its customary free seven-day trial period.

Unique to Hopster’s Apple TV platform is the Discover! mode, which categorizes episodes from different shows according to things like curriculum, seasonal themes and specials. For example, kids can pick from sections such as Animals, Friends and Family and The World Around Me.
