The First Incarnation (1995-1998)

This is in fact the second incarnation of Nickelodeon in Germany -- the first version of Nickelodeon signed on in 1995, as a joint venture between Viacom and a German media company called Ravensburger TV. Programming on this version, which used the full Nickelodeon name, featured a mix of Nicktoons, live action Nick shows, German-produced programming and imports from the United States and other European countries, and was on the air daily from 8AM to 8PM. The channel was available throughout most of Europe on an FTA satellite signal.

However, due to competition with the state-run KI.KA children's channel and restrictions on cable carriage, plus financial problems with Viacom's German partner, Nickelodeon closed in Germany on June 1, 1998. Nick's programming then shifted to other channels (Super RTL in particular). KI.KA (Der Kinderkanal = The Childrens Channel)is a public television channel based in Erfurt, Germany. ...

In regards to the current Nick Germany, when Viacom announced plans for a new Nick channel in Germany, the original plans were to offer a scrambled signal to German viewers by a paid subscription. However, due to complaints from many German satellite viewers, Viacom offered the new Nick Germany as a FTA signal instead. Most terrestrial and speciality channels in Germany are available unscrambled via satellite, with only a few channels (mostly premium movie channels) scrambled. It is also known that Nick's German service is the only version of Nick worldwide that is available without cost to viewers (other than for the required satellite equipment).
