Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) France is set to launch Nickelodeon 4Teen, a new channel dedicated to Nickelodeon programming targeted at kids 7 to 14 years old.

Nickelodeon will be available on the Canalsat platform and via Numericable beginning November 17.

Commented Raffaele Annecchino, EVP and managing director, VIMN South Europe, Africa and Middle East: “We are delighted to partner with Canalsat and Numericable to strengthen our kids and family portfolio in France. The addition of Nickelodeon 4Teen is a perfect complement as it solidifies our position in the market with Nickelodeon Jr. and My Nickelodeon Jr. focused on preschoolers, and Nickelodeon and now Nickelodeon 4Teen both aimed at kids aged 7-14.”

Nickelodeon 4Teen, modeled after the US channel Teenick, is dedicated to girls aged 7 to 14 years old, and will features Nickelodeon programmes such as Sam & Cat, Every Witch Way, Victorious, iCarly, TV movies and more.

Nickelodeon 4Teen will be available on multiscreen platforms, specifically on an updated version of the free Nickelodeon App where kids can watch exclusive video clips, listen to the Nickelodeon 4Teen radio and play with a social TV timeline.
