The N ("The Network for Teens", formerly "The Nighttime Network for Teens" and "Nighttime on Noggin") is a television channel in the United States aimed at teenagers and young adults.

When the channel originally debuted on April 1, 2002, The N ran from 6:00PM-6:00AM Eastern/5:00PM-5:00AM Central, sharing time on the same channel with Noggin, which had started as a service of Viacom and the Children's Television Workshop as a mix of a channel meant to show CTW and Nick Jr.'s archived programming, but by 2002 CTW had reduced its stake in the network, allowing Viacom to launch a second service within the channel space. The N has no timeshift channels, as it only has an eastern feed.

On December 31, 2007 at 6:00AM Eastern/5:00AM Central, The N became its own 24-hour network, replacing Nick GAS in many areas.

History

Initially, The N was completely commercial-free, like most of Viacom's other digital cable channels, the channel only broke programs to run self-promotion spots and spots for their programs. Eventually, they began to run music videos after every show, and then in May 2004, The N began running commercials (mainly for text messaging services).

In October 2006, Viacom bought the quiz website Quizilla. It then became a part of The N 'network'.

It was announced in August 2007 that on December 31, 2007 The N would split itself from Noggin and become a 24-hour channel.

Technical difficulties with relaunch

For satellite viewers however, the conversion from Nick GAS to The N was not seamless. Subscribers to Dish Network were still receiving Nick GAS's regular programming, while the Noggin/The N timeshare arrangement continued as it has since 2002 on Channel 169. On January 1, 2008 Noggin became a 24-hour channel again after The N took over Nick GAS's position. DirecTV also suffered a glitch and did not make the exchange until 7:25AM Eastern/6:25AM Central time. Most digital cable viewers saw no problems with the transfer from Nick GAS to The N, beyond some electronic program guide listings still showing Nick GAS's programming schedule or all programs under the titles "Sign off" or "Off Air", precluding the setup of DVR recordings for The N's programming. But Dish Network still offers Nick Gas on Channel 177 as Noggin and The N are still on the same Channel. Dish Network announced that on January 1, 2009 Noggin and The N will split and Nick GaS will be replaced with The N.
