In 1979, launched by [[Creator/WarnerBros Warner]]-Amex Satellite Entertainment Company, Nickelodeon debuted as the first cable TV network to program exclusively for children. Early in its history, it was nicknamed the "Green Network" because of its educational programming. Its major programming includes AnimatedShows, {{Kid Com}}s, and {{Made For TV Movie}}s. Its morning preschool educational block, formerly [[NickJr Nick Jr.]], includes programs for toddlers and kindergarteners. During its evening block, Creator/NickAtNite, the channel shows old {{Sit Com}}s and dramatic series. It is currently owned by Creator/{{Viacom}} which also owns Creator/{{MTV}}, Creator/VH1, Creator/SpikeTV, and Creator/ComedyCentral, among others (and in fact used to even own Creator/{{CBS}}).

Several other specialized cable channels have spun off from it, including [=TVLand=], [[Creator/NickJr Nick Jr.]], Creator/TeenNick[[note]]Formerly Noggin/The N and Nick GAS (Games and Sports)[[/note]], {{Nicktoons}}[[note]]Formerly Nicktoons TV and Nicktoons Network[[/note]], and [=NickMusic=][[note]]Replacing [[Creator/{{MTV}} MTV Hits]] [[/note]]. See also the Series/NickVerse.

The official website, with games and episodes of its shows, is [[http://www.nick.com/ here]].
