Nickelodeon Brazil is a cable and satellite television channel, the Brazilian counterpart of the American network Nickelodeon.


Nickelodeon Brazil was launched on 20 December 1996 in Brazil as a children-oriented channel, being the main competitor of Cartoon Network, which was launched 3 years before.

In 1996, after its launch, Nickelodeon had entered into an agreement with Globosat to extend the availability of the popular channel. Thus, some of Nickelodeon's most popular shows started to air on Multishow, such as Clarissa Explains It All . Due to the premiere of the Nicktoons on Brazilian Nickelodeon, Multishow started to air some of the shows of the block, including Doug, Ren & Stimpy, and Rugrats. In early 1997, Multishow stopped airing Nickelodeon shows.



In 2011, IBOPE pointed that Nickelodeon Brasil ranked seventh among cable channels in total daily viewership, with an average audience of 0.071 million viewers in Brazil.[2][3] In March 2013, IBOPE released a new list of the most watched channels of cable TV, which recorded an increases of position for the channel, but a significant increase in viewers, 0.950 million.[4]
