Nickelodeon Germany, known on-air only as Nick, is a 24 hour television channel for kids in Germany. Launched on September 12, 2005, Nick Germany is based in Berlin. The channel is available on cable and a unscrambled, free-to-air (FTA) analogue and digital satellite transmission. Some parts of Germany can watch Nick 24h a day while other parts can only watch Nick in the morning or evening.



This is in fact the second incarnation of Nickelodeon in Germany -- the first version of Nickelodeon signed on in 1995, as a joint venture between Viacom and a German media company called Ravensburger TV. Programming on this version, which used the full Nickelodeon name, featured a mix of Nicktoons, live action Nick shows, German-produced programming and imports from the United States and other European countries, and was on the air daily from 6AM to 8PM. The channel was available throughout most of Europe on an FTA satellite signal.

However, due to competition with the state-run KI.KA children's channel and restrictions on cable carriage, plus financial problems with Ravensburger, Nickelodeon was cancelled in Germany on June 1, 1998. Nick's programming then shifted to other channels (Super RTL and KI.KA in particular).
