Nickelodeon (Switzerland), known on-air only as Nickelodeon, is a television channel for kids in Switzerland, and part of the international Nickelodeon franchise.

Nickelodeon Switzerland started off as part of a programming block on Schweizer Fernsehen (now known as SF). The block aired between 8am till 5pm and would be pre-empted if sporting or breaking news events occurred. From 12pm till 1pm Nick ran live programming which was repeated at 4pm. The Nickelodeon Switzerland block ended on 26 September 2003. After five years of being on air SF decided to change their plans and create a new programming block known as Junior.

The current block for children is now SF Tubii.

Block (1998–2003)

The block which was shown on SF ran for 7 hours and consisted of Nick programming shown internationally, dubbed in German.


"Live!" was a game show for children that was broadcast live at noon. It was filmed and produced in one of SF DRS's studios. The show consisted of classical games such as Connect Four and call-in quiz's about general education. The prizes offered were mostly money to the amount of 70 or 90 CHF. "Rambutan" was a separate show and therefore does not belong to the games of "Live!".

Sometimes winners of previous games were invited in the studio for giving interviews. Often they received special Nickelodeon signed memorabilia.


"Dietmar" was one of the few self-produced live broadcasts. It was a program which gave tips for school life while joking about certain aspects of school.

Previous presenters

  • Florian Hodel
  • Nina Havel
  • Gabriel
  • Nadia Holdener

When SF ended the programming block there was no official reason given. One may assume it was for low ratings.

On the day before the last one, Live! was repeated and "Rambutan" was not shown. The next day Junior Scheiz appeared without any announcement.


A magazine was published and designed by Nickelodeon. It consisted of puzzles, pictures, quiz's, and a TV guide designed for children. Most of the submissions were submitted by children.

SRG SSR idée suisse provided the TV Guide information.

Channel (2009–)

On 1 April 2009, Nick Switzerland was launched in VIVA as a programming block. The programming schedule was the same as the German feed, with commercial breaks from that country being replaced by local ads.

In March 2010, Nick was rebranded. This was part of MTV Networks' plan to create a neutralised identity that everyone can relate to.

Since 16 May 2011, Nickelodeon Switzerland timeshares with Comedy Central.
