Nickelodeon was launched on December 1, 1977 by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment as the first cable TV network to program exclusively for American children. It was originally a local channel on the experimental cable system QUBE in Columbus, Ohio. On April 1, 1979, it expanded into a national network and adopted the Nickelodeon name. The first show to air on Nickelodeon was Pinwheel, an educational preschool series that was eventually moved to the Nick Jr. programming block. Nickelodeon's programming includes animated shows, preschool edutainment series, sitcoms, and drama series. It is currently owned by ViacomCBS, who also owns CBS, MTV, VH1, Paramount Network, Comedy Central, Showtime and others.

Several other specialized cable channels have spun off from it, including TV Land, Nick Jr., TeenNick, Nicktoons, NickMusic, and Noggin.note  There are also several Nick-branded channels on Pluto TV.

Nickelodeon is the creator of the annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, an award show celebrating children's favorites in entertainment media.
