    In Bangladesh if I type in nick.com now I get taken to nick-asia.com (Even though Nick India is broadcast here)

    I remember being told a while back by the owner of NickALive! that the site can't be accessed in the U.K. (which is where he lives). And just yesterday, someone on Twitter told me that a link to the site would redirect him to YTV since he lives in Canada. I don't know how long it's been like that.

    I was able to access the Nick US site until about two months ago. But I can still access the Nick Jr. US site.

    Kind of reminds me of what the rivals are doing. I think that the whole reason behind the geoblocking must be due to rights issues.

    I tried accessing nick.com using an Indian VPN to see if that redirects to Nick Asia as well and even that does. I was expecting it to redirect to Nick India but I guess not because it's run by Viacom18 and not Viacom International.

    Yeah, nick.com is geo-blocked. It's been like that for about 10 years. :(

    Here it naturally takes me to Nick PT's site. I remember that a few years ago, sister channel MTV had a message saying that the user was browwsing on a foreign version of the site when a local one already existed.

    Even when I checked nick.com (US website) when I was in India last year, I can't even access it, because it's restricted from other countries, only USA residents can access... I don't remember if it redirects to nick India site..

    I can still access the Nick Jr. site, though I can't tell if it's the international one because the address has .tv and not .com.

    NickJr.tv is the global Nick Jr. website. You should be able to select a 'local' Nick Jr. website at http://global.nickjr.tv though. :)

    When I got redirected I was certain that it was the global one. Thanks for clearing it up!

    You can't go to the Indian website from the global site, nickjrindia.com

    I was able to access it for a long time in Bangladesh, I just couldn't watch any videos. It started redirecting to Nick Asia around two months ago.
