Hopster launches on Android

HopsterKids TV subscription video-on-demand service Hopster has launched on Android and has teamed up with Samsung to provide a joint promotional offer.

Hopster’s Android app is now available free of charge on the Google Play service. The kids service, which initially launched as an iOS app before joining the Apple TV platform earlier this year, will provide a 90-day free trial to purchasers of Samsung Galaxy tablets and smartphones.

In the UK, any customer with a compatible Galaxy tablet or smartphone will be able to download Hopster from the Galaxy Gifts store.

Hopster provides over 500 episodes of fun family favourites such as Max & Ruby, Poppy Cat, Toby’s Travelling Circus and 64 Zoo Lane and a range of interactive learning games. In the UK, the service is normally available for £3.99 (US$6.25) a month.
