History

Start as a programming block on Fantastic (1999-2001)

Before the Polish Nickelodeon channel, Nickelodeon aired as a 12-hour block on Fantastic from 1999 to 2001 but was closed after being deemed a failure on 1 July 2001.

In 2000, the programme "ME-TV" began to be published, it was developed by Nickelodeon Russia specifically for Poland.[1][2]

Channel (2008-present)

On 10 July 2008, Nickelodeon returned in Poland as a full-time channel. On 1 March 2010, Nickelodeon Poland changed its logo and switched to Nickelodeon CEE. On 2 October 2012, Nickelodeon CEE again became Nickelodeon Poland. On 27 December 2021, Nickelodeon Poland once again became Nickelodeon CEE but have a few opt-outs, including nighttime Rodzina Zastępcza (Foster Family) marathons between 23:00-5:00 CET, and weekday events between 20:05-22:20 CET, in which Nick air Kally's Mashup (Zmiksowanej Kally), followed by Henry Danger (Niebezpieczny Henryk) and two episodes of The Loud House (Harmidom; which are shown on main feed between 21:00-21:55 CET).[3]

From June 1, 2023, the channel began using automatic subtitles in the promotion of programs, and also added Ukrainian language on this channel, in connection with the closing of the Pluto TV channel.[4][5]

On August 1, 2023, the channel rebranded, which included an updated version of the logo and a new design.

Controversy

On 6 June 2018, several episodes of The Loud House were banned from airing due to the complaint submitted to the Polish National Broadcasting Council by Ordo Iuris, a notable Catholic law office,[6] about the LGBT themes presented in the series,[7][8] but are still available on streaming platforms such as SkyShowtime.
