Nickelodeon Germany to Timeshare Channel with MTV+ from Thursday 1st November 2018

Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) GSA has announced that Nickelodeon Germany (Deutschland) will be shortening its broadcast hours later this year.

Starting Thursday 1st November 2018, Nickelodeon Deutschland, which broadcasts free-to-air (FTA), will replace it's Nicknight programming block, which, aimed towards a older audience mainly airs Nickelodeon programming from the '90s, such as Hey Arnold! and Clarissa, and the 2000's, such as iCarly, True Jackson, VP and Drake & Josh, with a nine-hour time-shifted MTV programming block called MTV+.

The MTV +1 programming block will air nightly on the Nickelodeon channel in Germany starting at 20:15 uur, and will air what is broadcast on the 24-hour MTV channel an hour later.

The change will only affect Nickelodeon Deutschland, with Nickelodeon Austria (Österreich) and Nickelodeon Switzerland (Schweiz) continuing to air Nicknight each night.

The news was announced by Giovanni Zamai, the Brand Director Youth & Music at MTV, at the Viacom Showcase in Berlin on Tuesday 4th September 2018.

The aim of the MTV +1 programming window on Nick is to help raise awareness of the MTV brand in Germany. Although MTV has been FTA in the country since the beginning of 2018 following several years of being a pay-TV channel, it's been having trouble building a sizeable audience.

The news comes as VIMN GSA is in the midst of a making some big changes. At the end of the year, VIMN GSA will closedown its VIVA music channel, which currently timeshares with Comedy Central, so that Comedy Central can broadcast 24-hours a day.

MTV will also be returning to its roots, recently increasing the amount of time dedicated to music each day to 18 hours, with documentary, soaps and reality shows only being shown in the evening. In order to further strengthen the MTV brand in Germany, the media company also announced the launch of a new in-house production studio.

Update (3/11): Below are a couple of videos featuring NickNight's last closedown and MTV+'s launch:

Nickelodeon to Debut Girl Power Float at 114th Santa Claus Parade in Toronto, Canada

Santa Claus has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon will be debuting a Girl Power-themed float at the 114th Santa Claus Parade in Toronto, Canada! Santa made the announcement at his top-secret workshop on Friday, November 2. This will be Nickelodeon's first float in the world-famous Santa Claus Parade.

The Santa Claus Parade is the largest children's parade in North America and the largest outdoor entertainment event held in Canada every year. This year the parade will be held on Sunday, November 18, and will feature 32 floats - the highest number of floats to date - and 21 marching bands, making it the biggest parade Toronto has ever seen!

Nickelodeon’s Girl Power float features giant, realistic replicas of Nickelodeon heroines Princess Nella from Nella the Princess Knight, and twin genies-in-training Shimmer and Shine. The popular animated preschool series provide positive and empowering role models for young girls.

Additional new floats for this year also include: Sunlife Financial, and Autentica Cuba, and Canadian Tire will also have an exciting new float.

"It is great to see how the support and spirit grows every year," said Clay Charters, Santa Claus Parade Executive Director. "Thanks to the support of corporations and individuals, the parade has become a world class event."

In addition to the support of all those involved, there are a number of initiatives that make the parade bigger and better every year. Metro grocery stores will sell red noses, to help light the way for Santa, at their check-outs with money raised going to the Parade and the United Way. The Holly Jolly Fun Run, a 5km run, will kick off the parade starting at 11:45 a.m. on parade day. All proceeds raised support the Santa Claus Parade. Also new this year, individuals can purchase GO tickets online in advance at to avoid lineups during parade day.

"I am looking forward to seeing all the smiling faces along the parade route," said Santa Claus, who flew into town from the North Pole to offer a preview of this year's magic. "This parade demonstrates how we can make something truly wonderful with the support of everyone involved – that's what Christmas spirit is all about!"

Alfred Iannarelli, general manager and creative director of the parade, has been part of the yearly festivities since 1970 and said this year's floats - which are built year-round - are particularly impressive. While Santa's float is always the parade's highlight, it was kept under wraps at a sneak preview of the Santa Claus Parade held on Friday, Nov. 2.

The Parade starts at 12:30 p.m. at Bloor and Christie Streets; travels east along Bloor Street to University Avenue, travels south on University Avenue (in the north bound lanes) to Wellington Street, then travels east on Wellington to Yonge Street, south on Yonge Street and then goes east on Front Street. The parade will head south on Yonge Street and east on Front Street, ending at the St. Lawrence Market. The 114th annual Santa Claus Parade airs Sunday, November 18 at 4:30 p.m. ET/MT on CTV and 5:30 p.m. AT on CTV Two Atlantic and CTV GO.

JoJo Siwa's D.R.E.A.M. Music Video First Look: Watch

Just Dream! Watch a First Look of Nickelodeon Star JoJo Siwa's New 'D.R.E.A.M' Music Video

JoJo Siwa is following her dreams — and wants to encourage others to follow suit!

The Nickelodeon star and YouTube personality is gearing up to release her positive new anthem “D.R.E.A.M.,” and PEOPLE has unveiled an awesome first look at the single’s new music video!

“It’s my favorite music video that I’ve ever filmed, there is LOTS of reasons why but…. for this music video I got to do my own stunts which was really fun!” Siwa told PEOPLE. “I love this song so much because it’s about how you can do anything you put your heart and mind to! All you gotta do is D.R.E.A.M!”

In the music video, Siwa, 15, sits among friends in a movie theater while singing about how she has always dreamed of seeing her “face on the screen” and “name in the lights.” She soon makes those dreams a reality — literally — by jumping into the movie screen and showing off her dance moves.

Throughout the video, the former Dance Moms star rocks her signature pink bow and side ponytail. She dons two sparkling outfits — the first features a brightly colored bomber jacket and the second a jumpsuit with shooting star and unicorn detailing — along with rainbow hair. Her background dancers also sport bows in all different pastel colors.

Keeping with a message of positivity, Siwa often uses her platform of 7.4 million Instagram followers and large following on YouTube to take a stance against negativity and bullying.
