Nick Junior is an Indian children's pay television kids channel which is devoted to toddlers. The channel is the Indian equivalent to the original American network and a part of the Nickelodeon franchise.

History

The channel was a block on Nickelodeon before Viacom18 launched it as a separate channel in fall 2012.[2]

Viacom18 launched TeenNick and Nick Jr. as a single channel on 21 November 2012. At first, Nick Jr. aired in the daytime while TeenNick aired at night. However, TeenNick was discontinued on 1 February 2017, which made Nick Jr. a 24-hour channel.[citation needed]
