Nickelodeon Portugal (formerly Nick Portugal) is a Portuguese digital cable and satellite television, which is the fourth Portuguese television network mostly for children and teens. The network launched on June 1, 2005.

Initially, Nickelodeon Portugal relayed the Central European feed with a Portuguese audio track and partial local breaks. This changed on September 1, 2009, when the feed source changed to the Spanish feed.

On April 1, 2010, Nickelodeon adopted the new typographical logo that is currently being used on the network in other countries around the world.

The channel has been broadcasting in 16:9 since the 22nd of November 2012. In Portugal it was only available on specific NOS digital packages, but in the summer of 2014 it became free-to-air in all NOS digital packages during the season's holidays, with ratings climbing. It kept free-to-air, during the new school year and widely available across digital services from the company. It is unavailable in analog basic cable and rival platforms.

In September 2014, it and MTV Portugal moved their headquarters to one of the Colombo towers in Lisbon.
