Nickelodeon (Germany), known on-air only as Nickelodeon, is a television channel for kids in Germany, part of the international Nickelodeon franchise. Launched on 2005, Nickelodeon Germany is based in Berlin. The channel is available on cable and an unscrambled, free-to-air (FTA) satellite signal.
A half-hour special, aired June 25, 1995 on MTV Germany (which was currently MTV Europe), featuring short snippets from Nickelodeon's shows that children would expect a week later. The original version of Nickelodeon was launched on July 2, 1995 as a block on VH1 Germany. Nickelodeon was on the air from 6:00AM until 8:00PM, when VH1 took over.
- Nickelodeon in Germany aired:
On 12 September 2005 Nickelodeon Germany was reactivated under the name NICK as a new channel. NICK started with a Prime-Time programme called NICK Comedy that aired sitcoms and other comedy shows. Nickelodeon took over the frequencies of music channel MTV2 Pop, which was one of four channels that were operated by Viacom in Germany. Since March 2006, in addition to international shows, own produced shows went on air. In October 2007 a special German version of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards took place.
On 1 December 2007 a spin-off named NICK Premium was launched for Pay-TV platforms.
In the beginning of 2008 NICK tried to establish a Prime-Time family programme under the brand NICK nach acht (NICK after eight). It aired documentaries, drama series, movies and sitcoms. It used an adapted logo of its American counterpart. Many parts of the block included reruns of Ren and Stimpy and CatDog.
Since 15 December 2008, NICK and Comedy Central Germany share the same programming block, with Comedy Central airing after 20:15, effectively replacing NICK nach acht.
From March 30, 2010 German speaking Nickelodeon adopted the international Nickelodeon Branding on-air, online and offline. NICK Germany was renamed Nickelodeon Germany (although some previous idents said Nickelodeon) and NICK Premium was rebranded NickToons.
From June 1, 2011, Nickelodeon Germany will start broadcasting in HD.
New logo was used from January 2012. It is now pushed out like the logo used on the website. Along with the launch of the new logo, there are now new idents and bumpers which currently do not have bumpers. These bumpers are from the US and the UK.
Since 1 June 2006 an Austrian version of Nickelodeon is also broadcast, initially timesharing with an Austrian version of VIVA from 06:00 (CET) to 19:00 (CET). On 1 January 2011 the broadcasting structure changed dramatically when Austrian MTV was scrapped and replaced with a new, overhauled VIVA Austria. Comedy Central Austria then took over old VIVA's place. Programming is identical to the German version, other than commercials and promotions.
A Swiss version of Nickelodeon for German-speaking viewers began on April 1, 2009, first sharing time with a Swiss version of VIVA. Then (from May 16, 2011 onwards) with a new localised Swiss version of Comedy Central. Programming schedule and times are almost identical to the other German-speaking versions, except that broadcasting ends one hour earlier at 05:00 (CET). Originally, it was a block on SF2.
