Nickelodeon is a popular kids' television channel broadcasting only with those who have cable and satellite providers, along with the illegal streaming and downloading of Nick shows off the internet. Nickelodeon has been called Pinwheel, but has converted over to Nickelodeon. The channel has been available on Canadian satellite providers Bell TV and Shaw Direct as Nickelodeon Canada since early 2013. A partnership was made with McDonald's. They ended up opening ten Nickelodeon-themed restaurants in the southern United States; especially in Central Florida where the tourist money was plentiful until the Great Economic Depression of 2038.
After the Better Entertainment Act of 2018 was signed into law, Nickelodeon/Thrextuuns would never air programming above a TV-G rating ever again, even on late weekend nights. Nickelodeon would move their entire operations to Puerto Rico after most countries declared television illegal in 2040; only to move again in 2106 to the Lunar Protectorate when television was legalized there.
Nickelodeon later became popular amongst adults for their role as the primary production company for the 2028 film The Purge 4: Global Anarchy.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, Nickelodeon has been broadcasting some of the most popular kids television shows. Nickelodeon has been broadcasting a variety of wonderful cartoons including SpongeBob SquarePants, Fairy OddParents, My Life as A Teenage Robot, Doug, Hey Arnold, and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. Many kids watched Nickelodeon more than any other children's channel around the 2010s while the Disney Channel audience declines in popularity since the 2000s. Nick will be the second most popular kids network. They watched Nicktoons as opposed to the Disney Channel. Last, but not least what was left of Disney toons (Phineas and Ferb, Kick Buttowski, Gravity Falls, and Fish Hooks) The only good enough television show that won five Kid Choice Awards and had seven seasons from Disney Channel was Phineas and Ferb. Phineas and Ferb was the longest running channel on Disney Channel after Hannah Montana. Phineas and Ferb eventually ends 2019, Disney also had another success, known as Gravity Falls, who also had success and have six seasons, ended in 2019.
By January 2024, an enhanced version of the current (February 2013) Nickelodeon app will be available to download on Android phones in addition to Android tablets, Windows tablets, Windows phones and IPad. This app will be free to download; come with an annual fee of about $90 and will allow viewers with Wi-Fi capabilities to watch all Nickelodeon shows from the beginning to two days after the new episode's original air date. Android tablets will only cost $20 by 2024 while tablets with Windows versions 14 through 20 will cost around $45. It will become cheaper to buy the tablet than it will be to recharge the battery using electricity. Some older power plants may not be able to produce electricity after January 18, 2038 due to the Year 2038 problem.
After Easter of 2055, Nickelodeon got around to re-branding themselves to Thrextuuns. Thrextuuns becomes a variety channel for ages 6 to 20; emphasizing a way to get childreen, tweens, teens and young adults interested in the same programs. Regular features on Thrextuuns includes original cartoons along with kid-oriented news and kid-oriented sports programming like censored versions of All-Japan Pro Wrestling programming with all the voices dubbed over into English, Minor League Baseball and high school football games from New York City and the greater Los Angeles area. By 2029, 60% of all programming shows on Nickelodeon/Thrextuuns will be considered to be "educational and informative" by the United States government.
During the summer months of the year 2115, re-runs of the 4KidsTV show Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward were shown on the Lunar Protectorate to show how accurate/inaccurate people's predictions of the 22nd century were back in the year 2005. While the predictions of professional wrestling becoming family-friendly and fast food places switching to fine cuisine came true, people were quick to realize that the TMNT universe never surrendered the use of human infantrymen with the Universal Peace Charter of 2037.
Starting out as Pinwheel, they eventually changed their name to Nickelodeon back in 1979. During the 1990s, Nickelodeon would pave the way for future cable TV-only cartoon series with revolutionary storytelling techniques and unique villains. Flatuence humor, a Nickelodeon landmark of the 1997-98 television season, will become less notable as the core audience becomes too intelligent for fart jokes. Most popular kids' television programs would originally appear on Nickelodeon before being shipped off to syndication; preferably outside the United States and years after their final episode had first aired. Their popular theme song will be used until the end of the 22nd Century. Depending on the show and target age group, the theme song will be customized to the tastes of the creators. Like Big Time Rush and Victorious will have more of a rocking Nickelodeon theme with logo at the end of the credits. Later will become Thrextoons with Nick@Nite on another channel showing television all day.
Shows like iCarly, True Jackson, VP, The Troop, Victorious, and Big Time Rush usually come on the weekends and The Troop ended with its series finale in Fall 2031 to make room for another live action television series to take its place. Nickelodeon's toons will either be on Blackout, a small block of new episodes of toons on Wednesdays (containing veteran shows: Penguins of Madagascar and Spongebob Squarepants) or Saturday mornings (T.U.F.F Puppy, and Kung Fu Panda: Furious Five Series.) Later in Spring 2012, it changes to Thursday nights and Friday nights and for live action Saturday and Sunday nights when Disney Channel changes theirs to Friday and Saturday. Cartoon Network's special weekday new episode blocks resolve however with Cartoonstitute Sundays, Flick Fridays, and Saturday All New.
Until 2040, Nickelodeon operated out of New York City. Once television became illegal in most places on planet Earth, they started to operate out of San Juan, Puerto Rico (because television was still legal in Puerto Rico after 2040).
