Ooredoo TV is working with Hopster to bring several pre-school TV shows, such as Bob the Builder, SuperWhy and Cloudbabies, to its young audience. The shows will be telecast via Ooredoo TV’s set-top-box. Customers can subscribe to the Family Bundle for as little as USD 15 per month or the Home Bundle at USD 10 per month.
This platform is to help children with their creativity, literacy and numeracy skills and develop their emotional intelligence and social relationships.
Speaking about the partnership, Feras bin Abdullah Al Shaikh, Director of Consumer Sales at Ooredoo, said: “Our partnership with Hopster has allowed us to provide fun and educational content for our younger audience. At Ooredoo, we care about our customers and continue to bring home entertainment that we know everyone will enjoy. Children are now able to learn more about the world in different and magical ways. Safe and child-friendly, Hopster offers great entertainment which also encourages little ones to become more creative, while nurturing their development.”
Nick Walters, CEO of Hopster added: “We are happy to be able to offer Ooredoo TV subscribers our carefully handpicked children’s shows as part of their Family Bundle. Our mission is to help kids learn through the stories they love so we’re excited that in Oman more and more children will enjoy our fun and educational service.”
Hopster offers European independent animations, such as Animanimals, music videos and cartoons that celebrate inclusion and diversity, such as the Irish animation, Punky. It also showcases its own original productions including the recently launched Saturday Club, an empathy-themed TV show aimed to strengthen kids’ social and emotional skills.
