Nickelodeon or Nick broadcast in India and neighbouring countries is an Indian children's television network based in Mumbai. It is the Indian equivalent to the American network and is part of Viacom 18. Nick India is available in four languages (English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu).
On 5 December Viacom 18 launches Nickelodeon HD+ in India. It is in 1080i resolution. It airs HD episodes of their in house shows, as well as new episodes and shows from the Nickelodeon US such as Marvin Marvin and Zack and Quack. However Nick India is very stubborn about broadcasting Nickelodeon US shows and takes them many years to bring a new show to Nick India. Many of the new Nickelodeon shows were never shown in India and they don't seem to pay any attention about it or ignore the shows completely. Because of the high ratings of Ninja Hattori and Motu Patlu, they are only focusing on their own shows and not from Nickelodeon US. Recently SpongeBob no longer airs on Nick India and when they do, they air it during the middle of the night. It is now HD exclusive. It is very surprising that the original Nickelodeon shows are HD exclusive and will never come to Nick SD channel.
Nickelodeon, or Nick India, broadcasts a lot of cartoon shows that attract children, the most popular being Ninja Hattori. Apart from that, educational shows like Dora the Explorer are also aired in Nick Jr. India. It is very noticeable that most of the shows are not Nickelodeon US shows and even high rated shows like Fairly Odd Parents never came on Nick India.
