M7 Group: Nickelodeon NL, Comedy Central NL z nového TP

Lucemburská mediální skupina M7 Group (člen CANAL+), zahájila paralelní distribuci dvou programů společnosti ViacomCBS - konkrétně stanic Nickelodeon Nederland a Comedy Central Nederland.

Obě uvedené stanice se objevily na kmitočtu 12,187 GHz s horizontální polarizací. Ve stejném multiplexu se nejspíš také objeví stanice Spike, MTV NL a TV Oranje. Tyto tři programy zatím nejsou funkční (vysílají se video a audio streamy).

Za zmínku stojí, že na kmitočtu 12,188 GHz s vertikální polarizací se objevila programová pozice "TESTH", která rovněž ještě není aktivní (bez videa a audia). Pravděpodobně bude patřit stanici History HD Benelux.

Všechny uvedené stanice (včetně ještě neaktivních programů na nových frekvencí) se aktuálně vysílají na kmitočtu 11,934 GHz s vertikální polarizací v multiplexu spolu s programy pro český a slovenský trh. Zatím se žádné změny parametrů netýkají zákazníků Skylinku.

technické parametry - Nickelodeon NL, Comedy Central NL:

• Astra 3B (23,5°E), freq. 12,187 GHz, pol. H, SR 29900, FEC 2/3, DVB-S2/8PSK


Romantikus szuperhősök a közelgő Valentin-napra!

Különleges maratoni hétvégével ünnepli a szerelmeseket a Nickelodeon

A szerelmesek napjának „előestéjén” a szuperhősök is romantikusra veszik a figurát: köpenyük alá egy-egy csokor virágot rejtenek, amivel a szívük választottját ajándékozzák meg. A különleges elő Valentin-napi hétvégén, február 12-én és 13-án többek között az is kiderül, milyen meglepetéseket terveznek és hogyan udvarolnak a gyermekeknek szóló sorozatok legnépszerűbb alakjai.  

Nem lesz hiány szeretetben és szerelemben a Nickelodeon műsorán: Valentin-nap alkalmából ugyanis ráhangolódásképpen egy különleges, tematikus hétvégi maratonnal kedveskedik kis nézőinek a gyerekcsatorna. Február 12-13-án a kedvelt sorozatok legromantikusabb és legérzelmesebb epizódjai kerülnek képernyőre és megtudhatjuk többek között azt is, hogyan ünnepelnek a Veszélyes Henry, a Thunderman Család és a Game Shakers szereplői.

A szuperhős család, Thundermanék általában legfőképp arra törekednek, hogy átlagosként éljenek, de a galibák valamiért mégsem kerülik el a kertvárosi família életét: a látszat fenntartása mellett folyamatosan le kell számolniuk a gonosszal is. Phoebe-nek, a főszereplő ikerpár jól tanuló szuperhősének mindezek mellett még egy párkapcsolatot is színlelnie kell, hogy barátai ne rekesszék ki, de a hazugság fenntartása végül nehezebb, mint gondolta. A Nickelodeon elő Valentin-napi hétvégéjén a Veszélyes Henry című sorozat is tartogat szerelemmel fűszerezett pillanatokat, habár a tinédzser Henry kiszemeltje úgy néz ki, hogy mégis inkább valaki más karjában tölti az ünnepet. A szuperhősök mellett a Brooklyn-i lányok is szerepet kapnak majd: Babe és Kenzi most kicsit félreteszik az okostelefonokra kifejlesztett alkalmazásukat, hogy Babe megtervezhesse a tökéletes randit, miközben egy nem várt szereplő is felbukkan az életében.

Valentin-napi maraton a Veszélyes Henry, a Thunderman Család és a Game Shakers tematikus epizódjaival február 12-én és 13-án 15:15-17:30 között a Nickelodeon műsorán!

PAW Patrol Live! 'The Great Pirate Adventure' to Set Sail on New Tour of Australia in April 2022

New Paw Patrol Live Australian tour announced

All paws on deck! Following the continued success of the PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” tour in 2021, Nickelodeon, VStar Entertainment Group and TEG Life Like Touring today (Nov. 3) announced the return of the second live stage show based on PAW Patrol, the top-rated preschool series produced by Spin Master Entertainment. The action-packed, music-filled production, PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure” Presented by Paramount+ features the beloved characters from the animated series and will begin touring Australia in April 2022. Tickets to see the pups embark on this pirate-themed voyage go on sale to the general public through Ticketek on Monday 8 November for show dates in Perth, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.

In PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure” Presented by Paramount+, Mayor Goodway is getting everything ship-shape for a big Pirate Day celebration in Adventure Bay. When Cap’n Turbot falls into a dark and mysterious cavern, it’s PAW Patrol to the rescue! Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky and Zuma save Cap’n Turbot and discover a secret pirate treasure map that leads them on an epic adventure. Over land and on the high seas, the pups set out to find the treasure for Mayor Goodway so the celebration can go on.

Things get ruff when Mayor Humdinger wants to find the treasure first for Foggy Bottom. The pups need all paws on deck for this pirate adventure, including help from the newest pup who’s all ears…Tracker! Using their heroic rescue skills, problem solving and teamwork, the pups set sail to save the day. No job is too big, no pirate pup is too small!

"Australian audiences overwhelmed us with requests for another tour after PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” returned in 2021,” said Tim McGregor, Managing Director, TEG Live. “We are excited to continue our partnership with VStar Entertainment Group and Nickelodeon to bring PAW Patrol Live! 'The Great Pirate Adventure' Presented by Paramount+ to Australia in 2022. Like its predecessor, this production has proven a hit worldwide and we are excited to share it with fans again."

Paramount Applies to Register SpongeBob NFTs Trademark

Paramount (formally ViacomCBS), the parent company of the Nickelodeon brand, has applied to register the trademark for SpongeBob SquarePants non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Paramount has applied to register SpongeBob NFTs under NICE Classes 09 - Scientific and electric apparatus and instruments, which is for Goods & Services pertaining to "downloadable multimedia files containing artwork relating to the field of entertainment authenticated by; Downloadable virtual goods, namely, crypto-collectibles and non-fungible tokens (NFTs)".

The news follows Paramount announcing a strategic partnership with leading non-fungible token (NFT) company RECUR last year to create a fan-focused platform that will bring the company’s iconic IP and cherished franchises that transcend generations to the space. Through this agreement, ViacomCBS and RECUR will create a unified environment where fans can buy, collect and trade NFTs as digital products and collectables across ViacomCBS' leading portfolio of consumer brands, including Nickelodeon, BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Paramount Pictures and Showtime Networks Inc.

The news also follows Funko releasing Nickelodeon NFTs earlier this month, which sold out within hours. However, SpongeBob was missing from the first wave.

Nickelodeon UK to Premiere 'Hook' on Feb. 25

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland will premiere the hit movie Hook (1992) on Friday 25th February 2022 at 5:00pm as part of Thank Nick It's Friday! In the film, Peter Pan, who has finally grown up and is now a married lawyer with a family of his own, is whisked away by Tinkerbell to Neverland, where he must learn to fly again if he is to save his children from the clutches of Captain Hook.

When his young children are abducted by his old nemesis, Capt. Hook (Dustin Hoffman), middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams) returns to his magical origins as Peter Pan. Peter must revisit a foggy past in which he abandoned Neverland for family life, leaving Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts) and the Lost Boys to fend for themselves. Given their bitterness toward Peter for growing up -- and their allegiance to their new leader, Rufio (Dante Basco, Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender) -- the old gang may not be happy to see him. Directed by Steven Spielberg.

È Sky Media – concessionaria del Gruppo Sky Italia – a curare la raccolta pubblicitaria dei canali Nickelodeon in Italia.


I Puffi tornano in tv: il cartone debutta in esclusiva su RaiPlay

Per il 65° compleanno dei "buffi ometti blu", la piattaforma streaming strappa l'originale a Mediaset e programma le nove stagioni complete

In occasione dei sessantacinque anni compiuti dai Puffi nel 2022, i "buffi ometti blu" tornano sugli schermi italiani. È RaiPlay a rilanciare i trentanove episodi della storica prima stagione, in doppio audio italiano e inglese, di uno dei cartoni animati più amati di sempre. Sulla piattaforma streaming è disponibile la serie classica di Hanna & Barbera diventata ormai di culto, almeno per la generazione cresciuta negli anni Ottanta. E il revival non finisce qui.

I Puffi: cartone animato storico su RaiPlay

Le nove stagioni complete realizzate tra il 1989 e la fine degli anni Novanta debuttano a marzo su RaiPlay. L'animazione, nata dal genio del fumettista belga Pierre Culliford in arte Peyo, è accompagnata dalla sigla John e Solfamì, come i due personaggi ricorrenti dei Puffi che in realtà erano i protagonisti dei fumetti pubblicati per la prima volta nel 1958 su Spirou.

Il brano è cantato dalla regina delle sigle: Cristina D'Avena. Pubblicata in origine nel 1983, la canzone era usata da Mediaset come quarta sigla per la seconda stagione delle avventure dei simpatici gnomi dalla pelle blu. In primavera fanno infine il loro esordio I Puffi del 2021, il reboot in CGI di Nickelodeon diretto da William Renaud e scritto da Peter Saisselin e Amy Serafin. I trentadue episodi vanno in onda in prima visione free su Rai Yoyo, il canale dedicato ai programmi per bambini dai 4 ai 7 anni.

I Puffi: Rai Yoyo programma il reboot del 2021

Apparsi per la prima volta in televisione il 12 settembre 1981, I Puffi sono stati per anni il cartone simbolo della Fininvest. Carlo Freccero, all'epoca direttore di Canale 5, ne intuì le potenzialità e li programmò "contro" le edizioni serali dei telegiornali Rai. Fu proprio al grido di "Aridatece I Puffi e Dallas" che l'allora presidente del consiglio Bettino Craxi firmò il cosiddetto "decreto Berlusconi" per riaccendere le reti Fininvest oscurate dai pretori di Torino, Roma e Pescara. È diventata celebre la risposta di un bambino che intervistato da un giornalista sulla questione, disse che a chiudere Canale 5, Italia 1 e Rete 4 era stato Gargamella.

Da allora i Puffi sono entrati nel mito e hanno generato un vastissimo fenomeno di merchandising e persino tre film che mischiano CGI e attori in carne e ossa. Il primo è I Puffi ed è uscito nel 2011. Poi sono arrivati I Puffi 2 nel 2013 e I Puffi - Viaggio nella foresta segreta nel 2017, quest'ultimo interamente animato.
