Comedy Central (own spelling: COMEDY CENTRAL) is a television station of the US media group Viacom, which mainly broadcasts comedy series and shows.

USA

Comedy Central is an American cable television channel. It was formed at the end of 1990 from the actually competing stations Comedy Channel (from HBO) and HA! (Viacom), after neither channel had been able to assert itself in the market.

Until the premiere of the comic series South Park in 1997, Comedy Central had rather low ratings. Word of mouth increased the number of cable networks that included Comedy Central in their programming, so that by 1998 more than half of US households were able to receive the channel.

In April 2003, MTV’s parent company Viacom acquired the remaining shares of HBO’s parent company Time Warner for USD 1.225 billion.

Germany (German)

Since 15 January 2007 Comedy Central has also been represented in Germany by Comedy Central Deutschland with its own channel. However, the regular 24-hour distribution was discontinued at the end of 2008. Instead, the channel has been shared with the children’s channel Nickelodeon since 15 December 2008. Comedy Central has usually moved to the Nickelodeon airfield and has been broadcasting between 8:15 pm and 5:45 am since then. After Poland, Comedy Central Deutschland also showed Sex and the City as the second Comedy Central station from 14 December 2009. Comedy Central has also been broadcasting in HD since 16 May 2011. From 8 September 2014, Comedy Central started its programme at 5 p.m., between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m., the VIVA programme could be seen. In mid-September 2015, the division of VIVA and Comedy Central was reorganized, with VIVA currently broadcasting from 2:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Comedy Central from 2:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Here, too, Viacom is the owner. Comedy Central HD is no longer available via HD+ since October 1, 2014. On 20 June 2018 it was announced that VIVA would be discontinued at the end of 2018 and the additional time would be taken over by Comedy Central. Since 1 January 2019 Comedy Central has been broadcasting 24 hours a day again.

Austria

On 1 January 2011, a regional offshoot of Comedy Central was launched in Austria, whose programme, apart from the commercials, is identical to that in Germany. The offshoot replaced the regional version VIVA Austria on the frequency previously shared with Nickelodeon Austria (6:00 a.m. – 8:15 p.m.). VIVA Austria, for its part, replaced the regional version MTV Austria, which had migrated to pay-TV, on 1 January 2011.From 8 September 2014, Comedy Central also launched its programme in Austria at 5 p.m., with VIVA’s programme being shown between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. In mid-September 2015, the division of VIVA and Comedy Central was reorganised, with VIVA currently broadcasting from 2:00 am to 2:00 pm and Comedy Central from 2:00 pm to 2:00 am. On 20 June 2018, it was announced that VIVA would be discontinued at the end of 2018 and that the additional time would be taken over by Comedy Central. Since 1 January 2019, Comedy Central has been broadcasting 24 hours a day since then. As in Germany, Viacom is also the owner of Comedy Central Austria.

Switzerland

In Switzerland, the regional offshoot of Comedy Central Germany started on 16 May 2011. Comedy Central Switzerland’s programme differs from Germany’s, apart from the regional advertising windows, in particular due to the shorter transmission time until 5:00 a.m., due to the start of transmission of Nickelodeon Switzerland (5:00 a.m. – 8:15 p.m.). In fact, the regional version VIVA Switzerland, which was replaced by Comedy Central and whose regional content was transferred to MTV Switzerland in the last 24 months, was dropped. In the Swiss cable networks, MTV Switzerland remains free-to-air, while the former digital programme channel of Comedy Central Germany was replaced by VIVA Germany. In the meantime, a regional version of VIVA has been launched again in Switzerland. From 8 September 2014, Comedy Central also started its programme in Switzerland at 5 p.m., and the VIVA programme was then shown between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.. In mid-September 2015, the division between VIVA and Comedy Central was reorganized, with VIVA currently broadcasting from 2:00 am to 2:00 pm and Comedy Central from 2:00 pm to 2:00 am. On June 20, 2018, it was announced that VIVA would be discontinued at the end of 2018 and the additional time would be taken over by Comedy Central. Since January 1, 2019, Comedy Central has been broadcasting 24 hours a day since then. Here, too, Viacom is the owner.
