Nicktoons (or simply called "Toons" since 2016) is a German pay television channel owned by Paramount Networks EMEAA.
Nicktoons was launched in December 2007 as Nick Premium. Unlike the US version of Nicktoons, it had TeenNick shows and some of the 1990s shows on the network.
In 2009, Nickelodeon announced that Nick Premium would be renamed as Nicktoons. Nick Premium signed off at 6:04am when the Nick Premium was rebranded as Nicktoons. Some of the programs were dropped from the network after Nicktoons was launched. The network is always 24 hours a day.
On June 30, 2014, Sky Deutschland dropped Nicktoons from its platform. No reason was given for the decision. Sky, though, stresses in the statement that its focus lies on the expansion of its HD proposition. Nicktoons, however, had only been available in standard definition (SD). Nicktoons is remain available in Germany on the cable networks of Unitymedia and Kabel BW and within the mobile TV offering of Deutsche Telekom among other carriage partners.
On April 1, 2020, the channel returned on Sky Deutschland.
