Nickelodeon ... primarily for children and pre-teens, but also features shows aimed toward teenagers in TEENick. Nickelodeon was launched April 1, 1979 as the Pinwheel channel in Columbus, Ohio. The Nick at Nite programming block began in July 1985 on Nickelodeon from prime time to early morning; originally the channel went dark after 8pm Eastern, although many cable operators substituted other channels at night, such as A&E (which shared a satellite transponder with Nickelodeon prior to 1985) or C-SPAN. The early lineups featured such black and white classics as The Donna Reed Show, Mr. Ed, Car 54, Where Are You?, My Three Sons, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Route 66, as well as Mad Movies with the LA Connection and Nickelodeon's Turkey Television on weekends. More recent programming included various sitcoms from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s such as The Cosby Show, Roseanne, Full House, A Different World, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Growing Pains. Nick at Nite has also produced original programming such as Fatherhood (an animated show based on the book by Bill Cosby), Search for the Funniest Mom in America, and Hi-Jinks (a Punk'd-like series where parents play practical jokes on their children). This block is known as Nick Comedy on Nickelodeon Germany. In the mid-to-late-1990s, shows like I Love Lucy, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, and other shows that are now on TV Land were aired on Nick at Nite. Generally speaking, Nick at Nite's programming has moved forward with the times, while still broadcasting shows at least ten to twenty years old. In 1996, Nick at Nite spun off the channel TV Land, which currently airs a variety of older shows, primarily sitcoms from 1951 to 1992.
Newest Review: ... Teenage witch on the channel there was around 4 episodes every day of the show! I think kids will love this channel and especially teens as all the shows normally relate to teenage life. When I watched this channel I used to love watching it all the time. The best programs were Kenan and Kel and Sabrina the Teenage witch. Those thinking of getting the channel you are making the right choice ... more

All teenagers and kids will love tuning into Nickelodeon as the channel brings in some fantastic entertainment. There are so many shows on the channel I can pick out such as My Parents are Aliens, Kenan and Kel and Sabrina the teenage witch to watch on the channel.These shows make watching the channel interesting but there are even more good cartoon shows like Hey Arnold and Spongebob Squarepants. You have to pay on Sky to watch the channel as it comes with the entertainment pack. I loved watching the shows on this channel when I was younger but noticed a lot of the classic shows were repeated too much on the show. In 2005 they used to show too much of Sabrina ...

Nickelodeon has to be one of the best children's channels EVER. I watched it religiously as a kid, and I was well into my mid-teens before I really stopped watching it. Still, the shows had enough of an impact on me that I often watch clips on YouTube, and even bought a few of the DVD boxsets when Nick were gracious enough to release them. There's a huge variety of programming that is aimed more at the 8-15 range rather than the youngest toddlers. The shows are often about growing up, dealing with issues such as surviving in school, and friendship. They generally offer very good messages for kids, wrapping this in an entertaining story that adults also won't ... Read the complete review

Out of all the children channels available i believe that this is one of the best two. The other being the Disney channel. It is also known as Nick. There are a wide range of TV shows including Drake and Josh, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Spongebob Squarepants, Naked Brothers Band, iCarly and Zoey 101. I wouldnt say all of the programmes are highly amazing, but the majority are. My personal favourite is Drake and Josh which is about two step brothers and there sister Megan always causing trouble in various places. It is very funny. The other good thing is that when there are adverts they do not go on for very long at all. ... Read the complete review

Although I am an adult, I sometimes go through the Kids channels, as to me it is mindless tv entertainment, and also perhaps it takes me back to my younger days when it was all cartoons, no bills, and you know, just a easier life! Nickelodeon is on Sky channel 604 and often just known as Nick. The channel is on everyday from 5am-11pm. It's hard to say whick age group this channel is for. I would say up to 12 year old, but I may be way wrong. So what programmes will you find on this channel? Things like Sabrina the Teenage Witch Zoey 101 Icarly Spongebob Squarepants Drake and Josh The Amanda Show Genie In The ... Read the complete review
