Nick is a German free-to-air television channel, part of the international Nickelodeon franchise. Originally launched in 1995, and relaunched in 2005, Nickelodeon is based in Berlin. The channel is available on subscription services and as an unscrambled, free-to-air (FTA) satellite signal. On 31 March 2010, the channel re-adopted the name Nickelodeon on air and online, in addition to the new Nickelodeon logo and graphical package being rolled out internationally at the time.[1] Since then, the channel is also broadcast in English in addition to German on a secondary audio track.

Unlike other Nickelodeon feeds and like the Dutch counterpart, the end credits on shows do not appear. They were replaced by short credits including the show name, production year and production company.


NickNight is an Austrian and Swiss programming block operating in 2014-present, 2014-2018 (Germany only). In November 1st 2018, Nicknight Germany rebranded into MTV+ (Comedy Central +1 since 1 March 2021)

Nick Comedy

Nick Comedy was a 1-year-operated programming block operated in 2005-06.

Nick@Nite Germany/Nick At Eight/Nick Nach Acht

Nick Nach Acht was a short-lived programming block operated in January-December 2008.



The original version of Nickelodeon was launched on 5 July 1995 on the DFS Kopernikus satellite and a few cable providers in North Rhine-Westphalia. Nickelodeon initially aired for 6 hours per day; during off-air hours, the channel looped a half-hour special featuring excerpts from its shows. Beginning in October 1995, Nickelodeon aired from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm, and timeshared with Arte starting in 1996. After Der Kinderkanal launched, Nickelodeon lost its slot on many cable providers and began timesharing with VH-1 Germany on satellite. Nickelodeon was a failure and continually lost money due to weak advertising sales and its inability to compete against its more successful rival, Der Kinderkanal. As a result, Nickelodeon closed on 31 May 1998. Nickelodeon's owner Viacom soon thereafter struck a deal with RTL owner the Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Télédiffusion (CLT, formerly known as the Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Radiodiffusion, CLR) to broadcast their programming on RTL's own children's channel, Super RTL (which, ironically, was a joint venture between RTL and Disney) in addition to a weekend morning Nicktoons block on the main RTL channel. After VH-1 Germany shut down in 2001 (and was replaced by a pan-European feed on a separate channel), it was replaced with MTV2 Pop.

Relaunch, 2005–2010

On 7 April 2005 it was announced that on 12 September 2005 Nickelodeon Germany will be relaunched under the name Nick as a new channel.[2] Nick started with a prime-time programming block called Nick Comedy that aired sitcoms and other comedy shows. Nickelodeon eventually replaced MTV2 Pop; since February 2006, in addition to international series, it started airing locally produced shows.[3] In October 2007 a special German version of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards was produced and broadcast on the channel.

In the beginning of 2008, Nick launched a family-oriented programming block named Nick nach acht (Nick after eight), which was the local adaptation of American overnight block Nick at Nite. It aired documentaries, drama series, movies and sitcoms.[4] It used an adapted logo of its American counterpart. Most of the block's programming schedule consisted on repeats of Ren and Stimpy and CatDog.[5] On 15 December 2008, Comedy Central Germany replaced Nick nach acht on Nickelodeon, taking over its airing time as a timeshared channel starting 8:15pm.[6]


On 31 March 2010, the channel adopted the new international branding. Nick was renamed Nickelodeon, while Nick Premium was rebranded as Nicktoons.[7]

Since 1 June 2011, Nickelodeon Germany started broadcasting in HD.[8] A new logo was used from January 2012, as well as a new graphic package.

From 1 October 2014, Nickelodeon Germany turned itself into a 24-hour channel, with Comedy Central leaving Nick's channel slot and moving to VIVA Germany. Furthermore, Nickelodeon introduced a new overnight programming block called Nicknight, replacing Comedy Central's airing time from 9:00 pm to 5:45 am.[9][10]

On 1 November 2018 at 5am, Nicknight was discontinued. At 8:15 pm on that day MTV+ launched airing from 8:15 pm to 5 am. Nicknight doesn't exist anymore in Germany, however the Austrian and Swiss feeds still keep the Nicknight brand.

On 1 March 2021, MTV+ was replaced by Comedy Central +1.[11]

Since 1 June 2006 an Austrian subfeed of the channel is also being broadcast, initially timesharing with VIVA Austria from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.[12] On 1 January 2011, it starts timesharing with Comedy Central Austria. The channel is known on-air as Nickelodeon Austria.

From 1 October 2014 Nickelodeon Austria starts also to broadcast 24 hours per day.

Swiss subfeed

A Swiss subfeed for German-speaking viewers was launched on 1 April 2009, first timesharing with VIVA Switzerland and then with Comedy Central starting 16 May 2011. For many years, its programming schedule was identical with the main, German feed. Nevertheless, it got its own, separate schedule. The channel is known on-air as Nickelodeon Schweiz.

From 1 October 2014 Nickelodeon Switzerland starts also to broadcast 24 hours per day.
