yes Direct Broadcast Satellite (yes DBS) has launched TeenNick in Israel, where the Viacom-owned brand has become the country’s first channel to target kids ages nine to 14.
TeenNick will air 24/7 with a focus on live-action dramas and sitcoms, featuring shows like iCarly, Victorious, Make It Pop and Bella and the Bulldogs (pictured).
The new TeenNick channel—along with other Viacom brands in Israel like Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.—will be represented by Ananey Communications Group, which operates more than 11 channels and reaches 76% of Israeli households.
TeenNick is also set to air an original TV reunion special featuring the cast of the original live-action daily-drama series The Greenhouse, which aired for four seasons on Nickelodeon Israel exclusively for yes DBS. The series was produced by Ananey-owned Nutz Productions, whose new tween-skewing sitcom Bed & Biscuit recently launched on Nickelodeon Israel exclusively for yes DBS.
The Greenhouse Academy—an international remake of the daily-drama series—was acquired by Netflix and will air later this year. The acquisition marked the first time an original Israeli series sold to the global SVOD giant.
