The Children’s Channel

The Children’s Channel, also known as TCC, was a television station in the United Kingdom, Benelux (with Dutch voice over) and Scandinavia, which was owned by Flextech. It began broadcasting on 1 September 1984, and was closed on 3 April 1998 (It closed in October of that year on UK cable, while in Scandinavia, it closed in October 2000). Originally backed by Thorn-EMI, it was loosely based on America’s Nickelodeon channel for children and was originally going to be named Jack-in-the-Box. TCC was first available on cable, and later came to the Astra satellite in 1989. The channel was replaced by Trouble (which focuses on teens instead). Trouble itself closed on 1 April 2009.
