History

As a leader in the kid's entertainment business worldwide and one of the largest producers of children's television programming in the world, NICKELODEON has built its brand on a decidedly kids point of view. In Pakistan, NICKELODEON is a part of ARY Digital Network since 2006. Nickelodeon Major Brands are characters like SpongeBob, Dora, Jimmy Neutron, Diego, Avatar which are recognized as major kids entertainment brands of the world. [2] Official Facebook Page of NICKELODEON PAKISTAN.

Criticism and controversy

In 2005, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority issued an order regarding the ban of several non-private channels because programming which should have been dubbed into Urdu or used Urdu subtitles instead used Hindi terms and references blended into the local scripts, or the networks carried all-Hindi versions imported from India outright. Later on, Cartoon Network Pakistan switched to using the original English audio with Urdu visual translation on PEMRA's orders, but the Urdu dubs with Hindi blended in returned months later. In early 2010, PEMRA again issued a notice against children's networks, and suspended the licenses of Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, disallowing them from broadcasting. In the meantime, the Pakistani government pushed unsuccessfully for PTV or another domestic broadcaster to launch a children's network to replace private broadcasters in order to assure PEMRA compliance with language standards. On 1 August 2011, the Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, announced the restoration of the Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network licenses, allowing their return to the air, though she expressed disappointment that a domestic Pakistani broadcaster would not step up to broadcast children's programming, nor PTV would launch one, and that PEMRA would accommodate the launch any such network. [3] Criticism and controversy

2016 network suspension

In the aftermath of the 2016 Uri attack, PEMRA again focused on Nickelodeon Pakistan as the network had begun to share programming with Nickelodeon India due to cost concerns, both within ARY and Viacom, and felt ARY was shirking off PEMRA's orders in order to economize against their orders; this also included the return of Hindi-blended and all-Hindi content to the Nickelodeon Pakistan schedule since their 2011 return to the air. The regulatory authority ordered a ban of the broadcasting of all Indian-originated media after 19 October, though PEMRA ruled that ARY Group had disregarded the order and continued to air imported programming with Hindi language content from Nickelodeon India during the restricted period. The network's license to broadcast was suspended on 31 October, with local providers pulling the network on PEMRA's orders. The network's website has since been taken down; its Facebook remains up but with no mentions of the suspension, and the only updates being to their profile image, possibly automated. [4] 2016 network suspension

Penguins of Madagascar

To most people, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private are just four cute penguins living in the Central Park Zoo. And that's exactly what they want people to think. Why? Because these placid-looking penguins are actually an elite strike force with unmatched commando skills and a secret headquarters. Their mission? To maintain order in the zoo. Their nemesis? Their obnoxious new neighbor, King Julien. This party animal and self proclaimed "King of the Lemurs" is new to the zoo...and he's looking to shake things up. [6] Penguins of Madagascar

SpongeBob Square Pants

SpongeBob lives in a pineapple with his pet snail, Gary, loves his job as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, and has a knack for getting into all kinds of trouble without really trying. When he's not getting on the nerves of his cranky nextdoor neighbor Squidward, SpongeBob can usually be found smack in the middle of all sorts of strange situations with his best buddy, the simple yet lovable starfish, Patrick, or his thrill-seeking surfer-girl squirrel pal, Sandy Cheeks. [7] SpongeBob Square Pants
