nickWith the launch on the Canalsat platform and Numericable today (19 November), VIMN France now delivers more pay-TV channels than any other international media company in the region, with a total of 18 entertainment channels.
Nickelodeon 4Teen joins MTV, MTV+1, MTV Base, MTV Pulse, MTV Idol, Game One, Game One+1, Game One Music HD, J-One, Nickelodeon, Nickelodeon JR, Mon Nickelodeon Junior and Paramount Channel, in addition to the international feeds of VH1, VH1 Classic, MTV Hits and MTV Rocks.
"We are delighted to partner with Canalsat and Numericable to strengthen our kids and family portfolio in France," said Raffaele Annecchino, executive VP for VIMN South Europe, Africa and Middle East, commenting on the move. "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 seven to 14."
Nickelodeon 4Teen will be available on multiscreen platforms via 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
