Attempting to legally watch classic Nickelodeon shows used to be difficult, and tracking down DVD boxsets was surprisingly worse. Thankfully, streaming subscription service VRV has brought plenty of those nostalgic 90s memories back onto our screens with NickSplat, the newest channel to arrive on the platform. Maybe we’ll hear more about those Nickelodeon video game re-releases soon!
Depending on who you ask, the ’90s was the golden age of kids television network Nickelodeon. Pushing out popular – and surprisingly risque – cartoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and The Angry Beavers, even its live-action programming like Clarissa Explains It All and Kenan & Kel helped kickstart the careers of household names like Melissa Joan Hart and Kenan Thomspon.
Starting today, VRV subscribers can enjoy classic Nick shows as part of their $9.99 monthly subscription, or as a standalone NickSplat subscription for $5,99. That wider cost gets you access to other channels like Crunchyroll.
Around 30 titles from the 90s and early 00s will be available to stream on the platform over time, with available titles rotating on an undisclosed basis to make room for more. These won’t be full run-throughs of entire shows, though, with only select seasons making the first rotation judging from the guide.
So what’s on the list? The current VRV NickSplat guide shows the following;
- Angry Beavers
- Chalk Zone
- Hey Dude
- AAHHH Real Monsters
- Rocko’s Modern Life
NickSplat Live Action Shows
- All That
- The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo
- The Amanda Show
- Nick Arcade
- Salute Your Shorts
- Kenan & Kel
- Double Dare 2000
- Legends of the Hidden Temple
- Are You Afraid of the Dark
- Clarissa Explains it All
NickSplat itself is available right now and is set to air both ChalkZone and Hey Dude on-demand: both of which weren’t included in the press release according to Forbes. The teaser trailer on that site shows even more shows, like All Grown Up, that aren’t currently available to watch, so who knows what other surprises might come further down the line!
As you might have found out by clicking the guide link already, VRV, and by proxy the NickSplat channel, isn’t available outside of North America just yet. But with 1.5 million subscribers as of close to a year ago now, they must surely be planning to roll out a wider release soon.
