February 24, 2009 | 09:27 UK

MTV Networks is set to rearrange its offer for Swiss viewers. MTV Schweiz will once again have a full 24 hour channel, while Nick will now be a new, dedicated Swiss feed channel sharing with Viva Schweiz.

Nick, the name for Nickelodeon used in the German language markets, will broadcast every day from 5am till 8.15pm with programming aimed at 3- to 14 year olds. Viva Schweiz will start at 8.15pm with emphasis on Swiss artists.
Cablecom, the largest cable operator in the country, has committed to carrying the two channels in its basic analogue offer.
