Delta Goodrem announced on Today Show this morning she would host this year’s Slimefest, to be held in Melbourne on September 25 and Sydney in September 30. Since there are two shows per day (11am and 6pm), I am not sure if Delta will host all four of them. Highlights from Slimefest will air on Nickelodeon channel on September 30.

Does this mean we’re closer an HD Simulcast Of Nickelodeon than ever Before,

Sadly Id say no.

They could use Channel 701 for all of Nicks Live action shows and 702 for all of Nicks Toons

Just saw a Nickelodeon branded Foxtel/Fetch TV ad on 10. Interesting to see ViacomCBS’s efforts of advertising their other brands on FTA TV is already in full swing before their Sales departure from Foxtel Media in April.


The English version will premiere in the US in 2021, followed by other countries including Australia.
