Nickelodeon

(Wikipedia) Nickelodeon (often shortened to Nick) is an American pay television channel which was first launched on April 1, 1979 as the first cable channel for children.[1] It is owned by ViacomCBS through its domestic networks division and is based in New York City. The network’s programming is primarily aimed at children and adolescents aged 2–17,[2] while some of its program blocks target a broader family audience.

The channel was originally first tested as Channel C-3, with Pinwheel as its main program on December 1, 1977. Pinwheel was a television series that was, at the time, only available on QUBE,[3] which was the first two-way major market interactive cable television system, owned by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment. The channel was then launched officially as Nickelodeon on April 1, 1979, and expanded to other cable providers nationwide.[4] It was initially commercial-free and remained without advertising until 1984.[5] Warner-Amex sold Nickelodeon, along with its sister networks MTV and VH1, to Viacom in 1986.[6]
