Spike is a Dutch free-to-air television channel in the Netherlands and Flanders, based on the American rebranded Paramount Network. It is the third Spike channel next to the US and UK version of the channel. The television channel aims at an audience of mainly men. In the Netherlands and Flanders, the channel started broadcasting on 1 October 2015. Initially it only broadcast daily between 21:00 and 2:30, time-sharing with Nickelodeon. As of 12 December 2016 the channel is broadcasting 24 hours a day in the Netherlands.


On 18 August 2015, Viacom announced that Spike would launch in the Netherlands and Flanders on 1 October 2015.[1] It started broadcasting at night and broadcasts from 21:00 to 2:30 on Nickelodeon, replacing TeenNick in its time slot.[2] This brings the American Spike channel for the first time in the Netherlands and Belgium.

On 12 December 2016 Spike launched as a 24-hours channel on Ziggo in the Netherlands, followed by KPN, Telfort, XS4ALL, Caiway and T-Mobile Thuis 3 months later. Nickelodeon became a 24-hours channel again. On some platforms Spike keeps on time-sharing daily between 21:05 and 5:00 with Nickelodeon, which is 2.5 hours more than before 12 December 2016.[3][4][5] In Flanders Spike is time-sharing daily between 21:05 and 5:00 with Nickelodeon, which is 2.5 hours longer then before 12 december 2016.

On 18 January 2018, the American channel Spike was rebranded as Paramount Network by Viacom Media Networks to closely associate with the Paramount Pictures movie studio. It is unknown if this or other international versions of Spike will follow suit.[6]
