On air for 24 hours daily and pre-dubbed into Czech, it offers animated children’s content and is being distributed initially by UPC, with T-Mobile and other pay-TV operators expected to offer the channel from later this month.
Commenting on the launch, Gabor Harsanyi, VP and general manager of Viacom International Media Networks for Central and Eastern Europe and Israel, said: “Nicktoons greatly complements Viacom’s offer of children’s content.
“The new channel fills the gap between Nick Jr., offering entertaining and interactive content for preschoolers, and Nickelodeon, which brings the best animated and fiction series popular among teenagers. With a new combination of channels, we offer the largest selection of entertaining animated series for children of all ages, every day, all day. ”
