    She works for Hewlett-Packard, she has no affiliation with Nickelodeon either by working for the company or have any contacts with their PR office, also you've pretty much reiterated what I just said in my previous post.

    I have some NickToons UK news, starting on Jan 9th. A few classics are coming back, but mainly consist of a Rugrats block at 15:00 (Rugrats, followed by All Grown Up), and an hour of Rocko's Modern Life at 21:00.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender (Legend of Aang) will be gone.
    Spongebob has 29 half-hour slots on the schedule.


    I never understood the Nick@Nite block. I get some of the shows they threw in, but then there's the Emoji/Texting idents which i found annoying, and then they started showing the Australian soap Neighbours. How does that work?

    Neighbours used to have a huge cult following among children, and I think that the reason why Nick UK grabbed it is because they possibly want to air reruns from Channel 5, which is their current sister channel.

    Does RegularCapital and his brother count as a "huge cult", or do we know of other British people who loved it in their childhood? :D

    It's like they're trying to be TeenNick.

    I don't understand what you mean "reiterated" your post. Nick@Nite UK still exists.

    Unless if you live in UK or England that says Nick@Nite is ending, I doubt it. But if schedule says so, but would logo on screen says "Nick@Nite"?

    But how do you really know that Nick@Nite UK is ending? And not just by looking at the schedule. Where is the source confirming this?

    I think it might be speculation. While an announcement would be nice, it's still possible it's being quietly cancelled.

    I didn't say it was ending in the post I quoted, I said it's ending in its current form. We'll have to wait till January to find out what's going on, it's just the schedule change (announced by Francisque) aroused my suspicion that there's a possibility of the block ending and at the time I shared his opinion.

    Yeah, the "huge cult following" was with the pre-main news repeats it had at 5:35pm when it was on BBC One. It was strategically placed after CBBC. I don't know if Channel 5 did something similar when it gained the rights as even their programming aimed at kids only airs in the mornings.
    Now that's... weird? And even without a TeenNick channel!

    But as for TLH, I appreciate it!

    Sorry if I'm not wording correctly. I assumed ending and ending current form is same thing as ending block. But like someone said, it may be possible speculation that it could end but we will wait for confirms and/or promos or announcements for it

    OFF:

    Yes, that's the reason why Neighbours was popular with older kids because it was a lead-in after CBBC and just before the news, times has changed. Neighbours moved to Channel 5 and because of their scheduling and choice of programming, the show lost a fringe audience. Kids nowadays are probably not aware that there was a CBBC block on BBC One, let alone knowing Neighbours was on the channel, there's no association with that demographic anymore.

    From what I remember, the 5.30pm showing was actually a repeat of the 1.30pm showing, as many people were at work or school during the day, this was pretty much the proper premiere of the episode.

    Zarok TV, a Kurdish-language kids channel based in Turkey, has got some Nick shows dubbed into Kurdish: SpongeBob, Fairly OddParents and, surprisingly enough, The Angry Beavers.

    I thought Power Rangers moved to Pop/Kix, but turns out Nicktoons UK is airing Power Rangers Super Megaforce.

    Nope. Dino Charge aired on Pop and Kix instead.
