Nickelodeon is a Canadianmarker English language category 2 digital cable specialty channel based on the U.S.marker cable network Nickelodeon. It is wholly-owned by Corus Entertainment, with its name licensed from MTV Networks International, a division of Viacom.

As with its counterparts in the U.S. and elsewhere, Nickelodeon airs programs aimed at children, including live-action series and animation. Corus already owns two similar channels, YTV and Treehouse TV, which have carried Nickelodeon programs for many years under output agreements with Viacom. Both channels will continue to air Nickelodeon programs in the future, despite the launch of Nickelodeon Canada.

This marks the second Viacom-branded channel to be owned by Corus; the companies also partner on CMT Canada.

History

The channel launched on November 2, 2009, with their first show, Jacob Two Two and using the "YTV OneWorld" licence, granted to Corus by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in September 2008. Although Nickelodeon operates and launched under this licence, its feed replaces the Discovery Kids channel that Corus operated on most operators, which shut down on the same day Nickelodeon launched. However, cable and satellite companies had to reach new agreements with Corus in order to carry Nickelodeon, as Discovery Kids operated under a different licence.
