Nickelodeon Hungary is a Hungarian channel that is aimed at children. The channel launched in 1999, based on a block that the channel M-Sat launched in 1998. It broadcasts several Nickelodeon programs.


It was originally launched as a short block on August 1, 1998 on the youth entertainment channel M-Sat. On April 25, 1999 it had expanded to 12 hours, starting at 7AM. After M-Sat closed on October 5, 1999, the block was so successful that MTV Networks Europe decided to make a 12-hour channel out of the block. Nickelodeon Hungary started on October 6, 1999 in the place of formerly M-Sat. It aired a feed of Nickelodeon Russia from 2002 to 2010, when Nickelodeon Hungary could run without a feed again.
