The closest thing was a Sinhala dub of it airing on Rupavahini about two or three years ago. Though it's not a Nick show from the onset.

As I said, the only Nick show that aired on the channel was Space Cases back in the spring of 2016. It was subtitled.

I am able to watch Nick India for free on this brand new service called Bioscope Live. It's run by grameenphone.



And yes they got the wrong EPG.

If CN was there it would be helpful. I could use the screen recorder coming in iOS 11 to record some stuff.

Also on Nick jr, whenever they play the Alvin opening they keep on playing the same one from "Principal Interest" and don't show the actual episode name. They do this with all their shows.

Kind of reminds me of the time when CN Africa aired the intro to Regular Show attached to the intro to the first episode (The Power) before going on to the episode's title card.

This was from 2015. I guess when they said that, they really weren't lying.



And didn't they "move" it to Sonic a few months after it relaunched?

Jaipuria feels that the strategic shift of getting people who have already sampled ‘Pakdam Pakdai’ on Nick will help in adding to the viewer base of Sonic. The action-oriented channel is targeted at the 10–17 age group.

Another reason for the franchise being shifted is that Nick has snatched back its tent-pole chase property ‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’ from Cartoon Network. The kids broadcaster doesn’t want to air two chase properties on its flagship channel Nick.

Then why did they move it to Sonic?

Because of "the action cartoon theory" since many Indian parents don't want their kids to watch violent content. And that's probably how it moved to Sonic, though I'm not sure, as this story must have hundreds of variations.

‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’ to move to Sonic

With ‘Shiva’ launching on Nick, the network has decided to move chase comedy show ‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’ to its action/comedy channel Sonic. Jaipuria is confident that ‘Shiva’ will make up for ‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’, which provides around 20–22 per cent of Nick’s viewership. A pure action channel will not have a wider appeal; however, a mix of action and comedy can be an infallible recipe for success, feels Jaipuria. Jaipuria believes that the strategic decision to shift ‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’ will help widen Sonic’s viewership pool. An elaborate marketing campaign has been designed to announce the shift of the property from Nick to Sonic. “This will help us create a very robust content pipeline for Nickelodeon and Sonic, ensuring viewership growth and engagement,” she affirmed.

See? I was right. These days, in certain parts of the world like Portugal or India, action cartoons are not well-met.
