Super! is an Italian television channel owned by Paramount Networks EMEAA. The channel was launched on 1 September 2010 as DeA Super on Sky Italia. On 18 March 2012, it became free-to-air and changed name to Super!.[1] The network official speaker is voice actor Renato Novara.

Programming

Super! shows a variety of programs targeted towards children aged seven to thirteen.

Super! was the first Italian television channel airing a Korean drama, Dream High, from 1 September to 16 October 2013, the only K-drama broadcast in Italy.[2] However, the series was heavily edited, and dubbed into Italian, names were changed to English alternatives (for example, Hye-mi became Sam, Sam-dong Brian, and Jin-guk Dylan), episodes split in two parts, some scenes cut to reduce the duration of the episodes[3] or to censor the content unsuitable for young audiences, mainly blood.[4]

During October 2019, a new programming block premiered, Chicchirichì Time, which is aimed at preschoolers, airing series like Shimmer and Shine and Bubble Guppies, however the block doesn't air preschool series anymore.
