The Dutch version of Nickelodeon, broadcasting in the Netherlands and through satellite in Belgium, and launched on 14 July 2003. In addition to the general Nickelodeon programmes, local productions such as ZOOP, Het Huis Anubis, Het Huis Anubis en de Vijf van het Magische Zwaard and SuperNick are also broadcast. The Dutch Kids' Choice Awards were presented in 2004, 2005 and 2007, featuring nominees that are relevant to Dutch audiences. In 2010 the American Kids' Choice Awards aired, which included categories for the Netherlands and Belgium inserted into the broadcast.

Nickelodeon has a separate version in Flanders with advertising and programming variations for Belgian viewers. All Belgian cable and ISP providers carry the Flemish version, with the satellite provider TV Vlaanderen offering only the Dutch version, as it uses the feed of the Dutch CanalDigitaal.

In recent years, with the increase of on-demand services, the market share of the Nickelodeon channel has declined in the Netherlands. In 2019, the channel recorded an average daily market share of 0.7%, which shrank to 0.4% in 2020. In comparison, Nickelodeon had a market share of 2.1% in 2009.
