Nicktoonsters was a television channel in the United Kingdom, which launched on August 18, 2008 on Sky 630. It was a spinoff channel of Nicktoons. Its licence first appeared on the OFCOM website in September 2007 (initially named "Nicktoons 2", this was changed to Nicktoonsters on July 3, 2008). [1] Nicktoonsters was for 5-8 year olds and showed old Cartoons from Nicktoons and broadcast from 07:00 to 19:00. The channel timeshared with Comedy Central Extra +1, the one hour timeshift service of Comedy Central Extra. Comedy Central Extra +1 was previously twenty four hours, however the hours were reduced to 19:00 to 07:00 on August 4, 2008, to allow the launch of Nicktoonsters.

The channel launched with a Rugrats marathon week before it commenced its regular schedule on 25 August 2008, at first exclusively formed of "classic" shows. In more recent months, Nickelodeon had added screenings of newer programmes such as Fairly Odd Parents and SpongeBob SquarePants on holidays and weekends.

Nicktoonsters's format was similar to POP, which also shows archived children's television programming.



Due to unknown reasons, Nicktoonsters was closed on July 31, 2009 and was replaced with a new one hour timeshift of Nicktoons on 1 August 2009. [2][3]
