Nick Jr. Australia is a 24-hour children's channel in Australia designed for pre-schoolers. Nick Jr. was a morning programming block on Nickelodeon until 2004, when Foxtel arrived and it was launched as a full 24-hour kids channel. The channel is run by XYZnetworks, under license from Viacom, and is also available on Austar and Optus Television.
Before Nick Jr. officially launched as a 24-hour TV channel, it was part of Nickelodeon's morning line-up which included such shows as Blue's Clues, Bob the Builder, and Dora the Explorer and much more.
On 21 January 2004, Foxtel announced a brand new digital service along with new channel line-ups which included Nick Jr. and on 14 March 2004, Nick Jr. officially launched to be the first 24-hour Australian kids channel to play shows suited for pre-schoolers.
For a few months after Nick Jr. became a full channel, it kept a 2-hour time slot on Nickelodeon in the mornings from 8:00am until 10:00am, but the time allocated to the block was far shorter than it was before it became a full channel.
The channel used the new Nick Jr. logo from Friday 26 March 2010. From 2004 until 2010, the channel used a localised logo with two kangaroos.
