Hopster Now Available on Comcast’s Xfinity X1


Hopster has launched on Comcast’s Xfinity X1, marking the first time that the U.K.-based SVOD service is being offered by a pay-TV provider in the U.S.

For a monthly fee, Xfinity X1 customers can gain access to hundreds of Hopster’s children’s videos, including preschool shows, educational entertainment, music videos and video books. Among the series available on the service are Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow, Fireman Sam, Two Minute Tales and Punky, to name a few.

Nick Walters, the CEO of Hopster, stated: “We’re delighted to be announcing Comcast’s Xfinity as Hopster’s first major U.S. distribution partner. We’re huge fans of Xfinity X1 and I’m sure X1 customers will love the addition of Hopster’s unique learning content to the platform.”
