Nick+ Moves into Greece


Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) has launched the on-demand service Nick+ on Greek pay-TV platform Cosmote TV.

Nick+ offers access to more than 400 hours of Nickelodeon entertainment, which are now available on any device to Cosmote TV subscribers. Titles available for streaming on Nick+ include PAW Patrol, SpongeBob SquarePants, Shimmer and Shine and Dora the Explorer.

“Nickelodeon is one of the leading kids’ brands in Greece, reaching thousands of families daily across all platforms, and we’re happy to partner with Cosmote TV to continue engaging even more local fans,” said David Urgell, senior VP of strategy, content distribution and digital for VIMN’s Southern and Western Europe, Middle East and Africa cluster. “Partnering with the country’s top pay-TV platform is an important step forward for our strategy in Greece, where our multiplatform distribution has increased significantly in the last year.”

Cosmote TV’s content and production operations director, Dimosthenis Vasilopoulos, added: “People’s TV viewing preferences are changing both globally and in Greece, as more and more viewers turn to on-demand content for their entertainment. With the addition of Nick+ to our portfolio, we offer a variety of popular animated series and family content by the leading network, further enriching our on-demand service.”
