The Central and Eastern European feed of Nickelodeon is broadcast from Munich, Germany, much like the German, Dutch and African feeds. As the feed is being broadcast from said location, 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, production companies, and in France, the dubbing credits (for legal reasons). 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.
In fall 2011, it was reported that Nickelodeon HD and Nick Jr. will launch in the Romania and the Czech Republic. In October, the Czech version of Nickelodeon HD began testing on satellite and is currently encrypted. Nickelodeon HD is expanding in Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Malta, Turkey, Russia, CIS, Slovakia, Poland and Kazakhstan. On December 1, 2011, Nick Czech increased its video bitrate from constant 3,4 Mbit/s to variable 5,4 Mbit/s.
In January 2012, Nick CEE got the new US look part of the Nickelodeon Worldwide 2012 Refresh. These bumpers are only used as idents and do not contain voice-overs over a short text display (like Nick UK). The bumpers for cartoons were updated on April 24, 2012. They were created by Avealmo. They are also used on Nick Latin America. Like the bumpers for the live-action programming, they do not contain a voice-over or any text indication of what show it is.
In February 2013, Nick CEE updated its on-air presentation for promos to the UK format.
