“Nickelodeon is one of the leading kids brands in Greece reaching thousands of families daily across all platforms, and we’re happy to partner with Cosmote TV to continue engaging even more local fans,” said David Urgell, senior vice president of strategy, content distribution and digital for Viacom International Media Networks’ Southern and Western Europe, Middle East and Africa cluster. “Partnering with the country’s top pay-TV platform is an important step forward for our strategy in Greece, where our multiplatform distribution has increased significantly in the last year.”

“People’s TV viewing preferences are changing both globally and in Greece, as more and more viewers turn to on demand content for their entertainment. With the addition of Nick+ to our portfolio, we offer a variety of popular animated series and family content by the leading network, further enriching our on-demand service,” added Dimosthenis Vasilopoulos, Cosmote TV content and production operations director.

Nickelodeon is distributed in Greece on free-to-air platforms and as a pay-TV offer alongside MTV and VH1. In addition, VIMN will continue to expand its brand footprint in the country with the rollout of Nick+ as a multiplatform offer. The Cosmote contract comes after VIMN struck a similar deal in Greece with Vodafone in January 2019.
