Nickelodeon UK Unveils Nick@Nite Sponsorship Opportunity

Want an opportunity to make your brand cool and current with 11-15 year olds? Check out Nickelodeon UK & Ireland's brand-new sponsorship opportunity for their recently launched evening programming block, Nick at Nite!

The Opportunity:

Nick@Nite is a brand new and exciting initiative that will allow your brand to build an association with what's cool and current for 11-15s. Built specifically to offer the socially engaged and pop-culture loving tween something different to the usual kids programming, this is a truly unique opportunity in the market!

The Content:

Nick@Nite features a mixture of soaps, sitcoms and reality, as well as delivering updates on music, fashion and celebrities.

A daily feature is The Scoop, an amazing on-air bulletin that is designed to make 11-15s feel like they are keeping up with the latest trends. Covering celeb news, style and the charts, The Scoop is also supported extensively online with a comprehensive offering of bite-size, relevant content. With emojis, hashtags and Buzzfeed-style type articles, this digital platform speaks to 11-15s in the language they enjoy using the most. Check it out at!

The ton of great content on the also means that, with the right partner, Nickelodeon could create branded articles and videos featuring the sponsor's products - allowing advertisers to speak directly to the tween audience in a way that feels conversational and natural (see examples and – note: branded content is available to advertisers who fit with The Scoop's editorial tone and objectives, they are subject to channel approval).

But the great content doesn't stop there, as Nick@Nite also features popular sitcoms like The Middle and Instant Mom, as well as great movies, Nickelodeon classics (such as Hollywood Heights), along with special events like the teen documentary, Demi Lovato: Stay Strong.
