Hopster announced as launch partner as Samsung focuses on family friendly Smart TV content
During the Easter break we were invited down to Maggie and Rose in London to celebrate the launch of Samsung’s Smart TV Kids Club.
The club aims to bring together and highlight to parents the range of family friendly content available through the platform from a range of content partners including Hopster, which offers ad-free and U-rated content for preschoolers via the Samsung Smart Hub, as well as the ability to catch up on shows from popular kid’s channels including CBeebies, Milkshake! and CITV.
The children got to play around on various Samsung devices, and the parents were told all about the Club and Hopster.
Recent research reveals that 71% of parents feel that digital devices and screens allow children to explore and discover new things 1 so Samsung has been working closely with the team at Hopster to bring their easy-to-use, child friendly Smart TV app to Samsung’s Smart Hub as part of the new Kids Club, offering families access to the all the best quality content for their kids.
A flagship app for preschool children within the Samsung Smart Hub is Hopster, a one-of-a-kind, ad-free subscription service that gives kids aged two to six access to an extensive catalogue of family friendly, BAFTA and Emmy award-winning, U-rated TV shows. The app, available to download now on Samsung Smart TV’s, means kids can watch all their favourite shows on the biggest screen in the house whenever they want in a safe, ad-free environment – perfect for busy families.
The Hopster Smart TV App is also the first and only app to have all its content comprehensively ‘U’ rated by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) and has been vetted by leading academic advisors to ensure all shows on the app are developmental and educational.
For just £3.99 per month, subscribers get unlimited access to hundreds of episodes of well-loved TV shows including favourites Bob the Builder, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, Paddington Bear, Max & Ruby, Pingu, Angelina Ballerina and many more.
Samsung Smart TV’s help families cut the cord on cable TV and get access to a world of extra TV and entertainment options including catch-up TV, movies, YouTube, Skype and loads more.

Better yet, you don’t need a set-top box, extra remotes or cables cluttering up your living room, providing you and your kids with a seamless and safe entertainment experience.
