Nick Toons, formerly Nick Toons TV, is a British digital television channel launched on 22 July 2002. It is a cartoon based sister channel to Nickelodeon. The channel airs cartoons, these are commonly known as Nicktoons. Unlike the United States version, it has been ad-supported since it launched and also it does not broadcast 24/7. When the channel dropped all of the old Nicktoons programmes, some of them were moved to Nicktoonsters when it launched on 18 August 2008.

On 17 June 2009, it was announced that a one hour timeshift of Nicktoons, called Nicktoons Replay would launch on 20 July 2009. The name and format will be similar to the one hour timeshift of Nickelodeon, called Nick Replay that launched on 1 September 1999. [1]

Nick Toonsters

Main article: Nicktoonsters

On 18 August 2008, NickToonsters was launched. It broadcasts some old Nicktoons such as Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys and Hey Arnold!. Its licence first appeared on the Ofcom website in September 2007 (initially named "NickToons 2", this was changed to NickToonsters on 3 July 2008). [3]

Toonz2Nite

In 2004, when Nicktoons TV extended their hours, the 19:00 - 22:00 slot was called 'Toonz2Nite' (extended further to 11PM in November 2005). This had a separate, distinct presentation from the main channel, and the programmes shown were generally aimed at older viewers. The launch line-up consisted of The Fairly OddParents, The Angry Beavers, Invader Zim, Ren & Stimpy, AAAHH!!! Real Monsters, Rocko's Modern Life. At various times, Yakkity Yak, Rocket Power, Hey Arnold!, SpongeBob SquarePants, As Told By Ginger, and Danny Phantom were also shown in this slot. The Toonz2Nite branding was dropped in early 2006.
