Yesterday hoopla digital, the streaming service for public libraries, announced an agreement with Viacom to add hundreds of popular television shows from Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Comedy Central, MTV, Spike, VH1, TV Land, and CMT.

hoopla says content from Viacom, including shows such as “Paw Patrol,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Blue’s Clues,” and “Dora the Explorer,” is now available on hoopla digital for families to download or stream instantly to their smartphones, tablets, and computers through hoopla’s multiformat experience.

“Through this new agreement with Viacom, hoopla digital is expanding the experience we offer to families, which is showcased in our content and in our technology and features. Whether it’s educational or eclectic, hoopla offers a range of family content and an experience that can be enjoyed across multiple screens—all with a library card,” said Jeff Jankowski, founder and owner of hoopla digital.

“Viacom’s goal is to connect with our fans on every platform they use to enjoy great content. hoopla digital’s reach to library patrons provides an exciting new way to engage with an even broader audience, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with this innovative, family-friendly service,” said Kristen Hilbert, vice president, sales and business development manager, Content Distribution at Viacom.

hoopla teams up with local libraries to offer free streaming for members of more than 1,600 public library systems across North America.

To begin accessing Viacom titles, library-card holders of participating public libraries can download the free hoopla digital mobile app on their Android or IOS device or visit hoopladigital.com.

    Why is it taking Viacom forever to debut their US OTT service?
    Why a library service? Where is the profit in this? Seems stupid.
