UK-based Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) provider, Hopster has got into an exclusive partnership with HarperCollins Children’s Books that will bring titles like Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Oliver Jeffers’ Up and Down to the multiplatform service.
Released yesterday in honour of World Book Day, a dozen titles are featured in the app’s newly launched Book Boat section. Currently, they are available to Hopster’s UK subscribers.
Additional books will launch on a monthly basis. (Twelve eBooks, two audio books and one video book will be available at all times.)
Debuting in 2013, Hopster has since attracted several partners including investor Sony Pictures Television and Fingerprint which led to a partnership with the Samsung Kids App.
Hopster that also recently launched on Roku in the US, Canada, France, the UK and Ireland, is now being used by more than one million families worldwide.
