History

TVCosmopolis/Channel 9 block eras

In 2002, the Athens channel TVCosmopolis (short: TVC) got the rights for broadcasting Nickelodeon media, including series with Greek dubbing, idents, shorts, promos etc. In the first era of 2002-2004, there were classic 90s idents (as it was the first time Nickelodeon officialy aired cartoons in Greek), usual TVC's promos about those cartoon series and commercials about competitions where viewers had to answer a question (ex.: "What's the name of the school, where Ginger Footley goes on?) and send the answer in a address, under the name NICKTOONS, in order to win famous toys. In the next era, after the fire that almost completely destroyed the station and the channel was renamed to Channel 9 during the end of 2005, started using the latest splat bumpers/commercial about the shows in Greek. That block ended on 2007.

2016-2017 era

Nickelodeon Greece's new program started with promoting the series The Mojicons, with slogan "Ξέχνα ότι ήξερες για το κίτρινο!" (Forget what you thought about yellow!). The series finally premiered on September 11, 11:30 AM. Also, Yo-Kai Watch, which was premiered in selected Nickelodeon channels across Europe, premiered in Greece on September 3rd, 09:45 AM. Later, Nickelodeon changed its program, transferring all the live-action series from 19:30-21:30 to 11:00 AM-12:55 AM (that time, only Monday to Friday). Now there are, instead of those, cartoon series (one of them is Danny Phantom, which wasn't putted on the timeline for years) and a Nick Jr. series on 20:30. Also, every Sunday, instead of a Nick Jr. series on 20:30, a Nickelodeon Movies (short: Nick Movies), featuring TV-made movies is putted.
Alongside promotional papers and commercials, Nickelodeon has advertised those changes, along with the arrival of new series (most of them not produced by Nickelodeon itself) and new episodes from SpongeBob SquarePants, Rabbids Invasion, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles etc.
During the last days of September 2016, Nickelodeon advertised the premiere of the shows Regal Academy (October 3rd) and Pig Goat Banana Cricket (October 1st). Also, banners started appering for 1st time in shows, and later, on advertisments. There were also the premieres of Pumpkin Reports, Endangered Species (Τριπρος Μπελάς), The Deep (Τα Μυστι κάνεις της Αβύσσου) and Zorro: The Chronicles. For a long period, Nickelodeon was focusing on its Weekend program, putting there new series and episodes.

Co-operations

TTpoweredByNickelodeon
The company owning the channel, itself had co-operations with local station of Peloponnese. Tele Time was airing a Nickelodeon block, with the co-operation starting on September 2010, a year after the start of the co-operations with MTV Greece. The crisis Tele Time had, resulted in firing almost everyone working there and Nickelodeon cartoons airing 24/7, with the channel being now known as "ΤΤ powered by Nickelodeon". On August 2012, MTV Greece and Nickelodeon Greece moved its programs to Super B. As of Summer 2015, it had stopped airing Nickelodeon cartoons, in favor of programs taken from MTV Greece and other local Athens stations.
