Childrens' entertainment SVoD platform Hopster has signed a content deal with Sesame Workshop covering the UK and North America.
The newly-added Sesame Street segments teach children about the world around them, numbers, basic academics and looking after themselves. Global Grover shows kids the diversity of the world they live in, teaching them to respect different languages, cultures and religions; Count TV teaches simple mathematical concepts and counting while Best of Friends offers lessons presented by Elmo and Abby Cadabby about dealing with emotions, taking turns while playing, bicycle and road safety and more.
Leila Ingram, head of learning at Hopster said: “Hopster’s core mission of helping children learn while they play is, in many ways, like so much preschool entertainment content, inspired by the incredibly high standards set by Sesame Street for nearly 50 years. We are honoured and excited to collaborate with Sesame Street and to be able to offer its cherished content to our Hopster users.”
“Sesame Workshop is committed to delivering quality educational experiences wherever kids and families learn and play,” added Lili Lampasona, senior director of Media Business Development at Sesame Workshop. “As families’ media habits continue to grow and change, we’re thrilled to partner with Hopster, an innovative and child-centred provider of educational preschool entertainment.”
