A Quick Word about Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon, often shortened as Nick, has come out as a popular American pay television network since its launch in 1979. During the test run as part of QUBE—a cable TV system broadcast locally in Columbus, Ohio area—“Pinwheel” did well among subscribers. The success of the educational show by Vivian Horner provided the premise upon which a full fledged nationwide network, by the name of Nickelodeon, was launched 2 years later. And, Pinwheel became the inaugural program of the first U.S. pay-tv channel devoted to kids programming.

Headquartered in New York City, and owned by the Viacom group, Nickelodeon airs content primarily developed for kids and adolescents aged 2 to 17—albeit some program blocks target a broader family audience. Until 1984, the channel remained free from involvement in advertising and commercials. Following the change in ownership in 1986 when Viacom took over Nickelodeon, along with sister channels MTV and VH1, Nickelodeon launched Nick Jr.—a week-day morning block for pre-school children. And, a few years later came another flagship brand Nicktoons—which showcased original animated productions—and was followed by TeenNick in 2009 that targeted the teenage audience. 

Today, Nickelodeon is widely available across the U.S., and gets to an estimated 87 million pay-tv households.

Given its popularity, Nickelodeon is carried by most US cable TV service providers and streaming services. But, when you choose to access Nickelodeon on DIRECTV, its much more than just the one network—it’s the overall value of your subscription that makes it more than worth a shot. The industry’s best picture format, made available with 99% signal reliability, and from a provider which has been rated higher than cable in terms of customer satisfaction for 19 years in running.

Let’s take a look at some of Nickelodeon’s sister channels available on DIRECTV.

Nick Jr. – Perfect for Your Little Ones!

ViacomCBS offers a range of programming for kids of all ages via the undertakings of its domestic networks division “Kids and Family Group”. As we said earlier, one such channel is Nick Jr., essentially a spin-off of Nickelodeon’s pre-school programming block. Nick Jr. is primarily geared towards children aged 2-7, and airs reruns from the extensive Nickelodeon library. The channel also has some original series like Blue’s Clues, Corn & Peg, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Shimmer and Shine etc. to its name. Largely speaking, the content is more elementary and visually appealing, and the language used is easy to comprehend for the target audience.

Owned by ViacomCBS, Nicktoons is an American pay television channel designed for kids aged 7–14. The programming includes foreign animated programs, original animated series, live action series, and feature films. Following its launch in 2002, the channel made good on content from sister channel Nickelodeon—and aired some live-action series like Henry Danger and The Thundermans. But, more recently NickToons has been showcasing series with modern content alongside reruns. 

TeenNick – Optimistic, Credible & Bold!

Another ViacomCBS channel, TeenNick brings a collection of live-action series received from sister channel Nickelodeon. And, also airs an overnight programming block consisting of well-loved Nick programs called NickRewind. The channel is aimed primarily at teenagers aged 13-18. The main programming of the channel also includes feature films and acquired content.
