For a fee of $5.99 a month, you'll get ad-free access to shows like Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Angry Beavers, CatDog, ChalkZone, Rocket Power, and The Wild Thornberrys. But the programming is not just limited to animated series; NickSplat also includes live-action shows such as Clarissa Explains It All, Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude, All That, Kenan & Kel, Legends of the Hidden Temple, and Are You Afraid of the Dark?
“Our partnership with Viacom is a first of its kind,” said Eric Berman, head of content partnerships, VRV, Ellation, reports Entertainment Weekly. “We’re very proud to be the premiere launch partner to bring a NickSplat channel into SVOD and share these nostalgic series so our passionate audience can fall in love with them all over again.”
The NickSplat brand actually began in 2011, as a way for the network to capitalize on the nostalgia of its fans who are now in their 20s and 30s. It consists of a programming lineup of shows from the late '80s, 1990s, and early 2000s that air on TeenNick every night.
However, since most young people would rather pay for Internet than cable, NickSplat's jump to streaming is an ideal way for '90s kids to enjoy the shows that practically raised them without shelling out for even the most basic of cable packages.
The name is a reference to the old-school Nick logo that looked liked a splatter of orange goop. This slime motif became a recurring and iconic calling card for Nickelodeon, which would utilize the stuff for Slime Time Live, the Kids' Choice Awards, and even a number of consumer products.
