What Makes Nickelodeon So Special?

The channel emerged in 1977 and despite all the variations it faced and the ownerships that tossed it around, Nickelodeon has stayed true to its roots. It is still primarily a channel for children’s animated cartoons, live-action series, game shows and even airs educational content.

Over the years, Nickelodeon has built its empire as one of the biggest children’s networks in not only the U.S. but also on an international level. It is no wonder Nickelodeon is available to 87 million households in the U.S. and the figures are only likely to increase.

Sister Channels

Nickelodeon even has a range of sister channels that are readily available on Spectrum TV lineup. Here are the ones:

Nick Jr.

Nick Jr on Spectrum? You bet it is! The channel is a pay television network and caters to the younger audience (ages between 2 and 7 years) of the Nickelodeon platform. The content programmed on Nick Jr. is carefully curated so children are not exposed to any crude and profane vocabulary and elements. There is also a programming block dedicated to Nick Jr. on Nickelodeon that airs shows on Monday-Friday (8:30 A.M – 2:00 P.M) Eastern and Pacific Time.


Now this one is for young adults, children, and budding teens alike. While the network caters to children aged between 6 and 12 years, Nicktoons airs original animated content from its sister network Nickelodeon and is for the Gen Z-ers and Millennials alike.

The platform is even known for airing repeat episodes of animated series that are no longer aired on Nickelodeon. Some notable titles include Rugrats, Doug, The Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold! and CatDog!


This Pay Television Network entirely targets young adults. The channel does not air any TeenNick original shows, rather the programming schedule consists of Nickelodeon series that are either no longer airing or the ones that were abandoned by Nickelodeon. That is not all. TeenNick also airs acquired programs such as sitcoms and drama series, in turn, giving a green light to mild crude and profane content.


The last Pay Television Network affiliated with Nickelodeon is NickMusic. The channel is relatively new and surfaced in September 2016. NickMusic primarily focuses on music videos and music shows that feature budding artists. The theme, however, is intended to fit the demographics set for Nickelodeon’s audience of young adults and teens.


What to Watch on Nickelodeon?

There is so much to watch on Nickelodeon that you would stop checking time and watch shows back-to-back. There is a show for every age group. While the channel mainly targets adolescents aged between 2-17, the channel is also great for fun-loving households who enjoy program blocks dedicated to family shows.
