Pluto TV Germany Launches 'Nick Ukraine' Channel to Provide Free Nickelodeon Content to Ukrainian Child Refugees Staying in Germany

Pluto TV Germany (Deutschland), the free streaming television service from Paramount Global, has launched "Nick Ukraine" ("Nick Україна"), a new channel dedicated to all Ukrainian children who are currently in Germany.

The new channel provides the youngest refugees fleeing the illegal Russian invasion of Ukraine with free Nickelodeon content, which they can stream via or through the Pluto TV apps for mobile devices, such as Android and iPhone. Nick programming includes SpongeBob SquarePants. Morning programming is aimed at younger viewers (similar to a Nick Jr. block), whilst afternoon programming is aimed at older children. All programming is dubbed in Ukrainian (украї́нська мо́ва), and is subtitled in Cyrillic characters.

Channel description: "This channel is dedicated to all Ukrainian children who are currently in Germany. Цей канал присвячений саме всім українським дітям, які зараз перебувають у Німеччині."
