History

Nickelodeon India does not air live action Nickelodeon programming on the main channel and decided to launch those shows as part of a night time programming block in 2012 on Nick Jr. India.[2] Later, it started showing animated Nickelodeon programming like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Nick HD+ launched in 2015 also had some live action programming.

The block was shut down on 1 February 2017, making Nick Jr. a 24-hour channel. All live action shows were removed from the network including those aired on Nick HD+. Even though the network said the block moved to Nick HD+ it is only showing animated Nickelodeon programming.[3] Some live action shows were made available on the Voot streaming service.
