CatDog, Doug, Rocko’s Modern Life, Kenan and Kel, Legends of the Hidden Temple, The Wild Thornberrys, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and 15 other series that were broadcast in the 90's by Nickelodeon, return on a streaming platform.
VRVand the digital channel NickSplatare preparing an emotional reunion with their fans through the streaming platform to broadcast some seasons of their famous Nickelodeonseries. Directors of both companies stated that the return of the series represents a nostalgia for these children's shows of the nineties that set trends and broke audience records.
They clarified that since it is a project in development, it will only be available to their clients the first, and in some cases, they will even get the second season of the series. Depending on how the market moves and whether subscribers sign up for the packages that will cost $5.99 a month for the basic version and $9.99 for the VRV Premium option, where more episodes and programming will be included.
Born on November 2016, VRV was the first fan broadcasting service created to compete with Amazon Prime and Netflix but guided more towards fandom (fans of a particular hobby, person or phenomenon), as it offers anime, games, comics, science fiction and fantasy content that are aimed at pleasing this target audience. Now it will broaden its spectrum with the fans of Nickelodeon series that reigned during the 1990s, as these are the main consumers of online content today.
This way, the fans of these 90's popular series will have the opportunity to enjoy their favorite series from a different perspective, because they will now have the option of watching them where, how and when they want, which is the great advantage brought on by innovation, technology and streaming platforms today.
VRV and NickSplat's strategy is to adapt and expand these Nickelodeon series to the various exposure platforms that are currently used by audiences. Broadcast schedule will no longer be a limiting factor.
This kind of progressive innovation will keep these shows alive by changing their target market. These popular children's series once reached an audience that is still active today and still have the potential to create new and better business opportunities in a different market. By being broadcasted on NickSplat, they will be aimed at different types of audiences.
In addition to NickSplat, VRV will include other channels such as Crunchyroll,Funimation, Rooster Teeth, and SHUDDER, among others. Eric Berman, head of Content Associations at VRV and Ellation, said the company's focus at this time is to "add more channels to the platform" with the goal of expanding its reach on the Internet.
VRV is available online as well as in app form for Xbox One, PS4, Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Android and iOS. It also offers more than 20,000 hours of free content (which is its greatest advantage), with the option of paying the premium subscription to access other services like its exclusives. However, although its associated content can be accessed in many cities around the world, for now, its service is only available in the United States.
The series NickSplat offers so far are: Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: seasons 1 and 2; All that: second season; Are you afraid of the dark?: seasons 1 and 2; CatDog: first season; ChalkZone: seasons 1 and 2; Clarissa explains it all: first season; Double Dare 2000: first season; Doug: seasons 1 and 2; Guts: first season; Hey Dude: first season; KABLAM!: the first season: Kenan & Kel: first season; Legends of the Hidden Temple: first season; Legends of the Hidden Temple (2016), Nick Arcade: first season; Rocko’s Modern Life: seasons 1 and 2; Salute Your Shorts: first season; The Amanda Show: first season; The Angry Beavers: first season; The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo: seasons 1 and 2; The Wild Thornberrys: first season.
Many of these series inspired other types of content when they premiered, such as movies or even video games. This gives them a greater audience reach. Television is a type of media that often and uninterruptedly demands evolution, creative and innovative content, given the constant technological advances associated with the entertainment industry and a more interactive audience.
