  Biography  

The channel was launched on December 20, 1996 in Latin America as a cartoon-oriented channel, being the main competitor of Cartoon Network, which was launched three years before. Another reason was it was perfect to make a channel there, because there were less kid channels in LA.

In 1999, Nickelodeon launched its official website for the region, MundoNick.com, allowing kids to vote for their favorite cartoons in specials blocks like "Nick VS Nick", "InterNick" and "Click Nick". A broadband radio, "Nick Radio" was also available, but eventually it was replaced by the Nick Jr. official site.

On June 9, 2008 the channel launched "Nickers", a live-action show with two hosts introducing shows and music. It followed the same line and was very similar to Disney Channel's Zapping Zone. The block was retired in all feeds in December 2008.

In 2008, two new original productions premiered, both being soap operas. The first one, Isa TKM premiered on September 29, 2008 and La Maga y el Camino Dorado premiered on October 13 of the same year.

In 2009, a new segment called NickHits, which airs classic Nick Toons, replaced Nick at Nite on weekends.
September 28, 2009 premiered a sequel to Isa TKM, called Isa TK+.

On April 5, 2010, Nickelodeon Latin America started carrying the new Nick logo , already in use on many Nickelodeon networks around the world. Also that date, classic Nicktoons seen on Nick Hits became part of Nick at Nite, signaling the return of Nick at Nite branding to weekends, making every night on Nick carry the Nick at Nite brand.

Viacom is now working on the site.
