Nickelodeon is a European channel operated by Paramount Networks EMEAA which debuted in Malta on November 15, 1998.

The channel later debuted in Romania on December 24, 1998, and Hungary on January 13, 2000.

The channel launched in Ukraine on November 5, 2003, and in 2004 the channel expanded to the rest of Eastern Europe broadcasting in Russian.

The channel was launched in the Czech Republic and Slovakia on February 10, 2010, in Czech.

Nickelodeon was launched in Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina in November 2011 and in Serbia, and Slovenia on April 23, 2013, the Serbian version of the channel was also made available to Montenegro, North Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It was launched in Austria on October 1, 2021, replacing the original feed. Nickelodeon was launched in Kazakhstan on April 5, 2022 and broadcasts in Kazakh.

Much like the German, Dutch and African feeds, for unknown reasons, the end credits on shows do not appear, while on most other feeds of Nickelodeon they are shown. They are replaced by short credits including the show name, production year, and production companies. There are also occasions where the end credits are skipped to the closing logos. Also, unlike other feeds, the promos and bumpers do not contain any text other than the Nickelodeon logo.
