Nickelodeon’s New Streaming Service Will Include All Your Favorite 90’s Nick Shows
Nicksplat is coming.
Since Netflix pioneered the streaming platform more than a decade ago, different companies have risen to compete: Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. Moreover, more niche franchises like Disney and DC comics have rollouts for their own content specific streaming platforms just over the horizon. Per a recent press release, Nickelodeon is throwing their hat into the ring as well.
The service is available starting Wednesday and will be called NickSplat. Nicksplat is coming courtesy of a partnership between VRV, a fandom based content streaming service, and Nickelodeon. If the name—and it’s obvious allusion to the era where Nickelodeon was synonymous with slime—doesn’t quite give it away, the focus of the new service will be housing many of the networks older 90’s properties.
Shows like All That, Doug, Rocko’s Modern Life, CatDog, Kenan & Kel, The Wild Thornberrys, and Legends of the Hidden Temple are all slated to become available on NickSplat. Still, some of Nickelodeon’s most nostalgia driven heavy hitters are notably absent from the show list. Namely Rugrats, Hey Arnold, and Invader Zim. But, as Polygon noted, there may be a very good reason for this. Rugrats is making a return to cable television while Invader Zim and Hey Arnold each have made for TV releases coming soon. Regardless, it’s suspected that those shows will become available at a later date.
As if the pot needed to be any sweeter, NickSplat will be available for just $5.99 a month, and $10 if you want to include the VRV premium bundle.

- AAAHH!!! Real Monsters
