TeenNick Italy will be exclusively available on Sky Italia channel 620, and will feature hit Nickelodeon shows, including the Italian premieres of brand-new series "Every Witch Way" ("Emma - Una strega da favola") and "Make It Pop", as well as viewer favourites, such as "Bella and the Bulldogs" ("Bella e i Bulldogs"), "Sam & Cat", "The Legend of Korra" ("La Leggenda di Korra") and "Big Time Rush".

The launch of TeenNick in Italy follows Viacom's recently announced multi-year agreement with Sky Italia in which Viacom is expanding its portfolio on the digital satellite television platform. Under the new agreement, Viacom recently launched MTV Next, a all-new MTV-branded channel featuring a strong interactive component, on Saturday 1st August 2015 on channel number 133 in the Entertainment area of the SKY EPG.

The launches of TeenNick and MTV Next complement VIMN Italy's kids and entertainment offerings on Sky Italy, which currently airs Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Comedy Central and MTV on its subscription based service. Sky Italy also recently closed a deal with Viacom to acquire Nuova Societa Televisiva Italiana, the company that operates a free-to-air MTV Italy channel, in an effort to further expand beyond its pay TV model.

As part of the partnership, Viacom will also launch authenticated Nickelodeon and MTV branded apps in Italy in 2016, in which consumers will be able to watch content, play games and interact with their favourite characters and shows on a variety of devices. A selection of Viacom content will also be available on Sky On Demand and a number of its channels are expected to be launched on Sky Go in Italy by the end of the year.

Viacom International Media Networks will offer such services in Italy to meet the needs of its audience, especially young people, who are increasingly accessing content and interacting with their favourite programmes wherever they are through all kinds of devices. Viacom International Media Networks, thanks to this partnership with Sky Italy, is expanding its portfolio of linear and non-linear channels in Italy to offer audiences even more.
