Nick America is a channel that first aired on May 1, 1999. It's lineup mainly consists of Nicktoons, Syfy shows and comedy.


The idea dates back to 1995, when Nicktoons were becoming popular, it was originally going to be called "Nick 2" but the name was scrapped for unknown reasons. The channel was planned to be launched in December 1998, but was pushed to May 1, 1999 for a surprise during the KCA 1999.
