AuraWorldwide is a television channel that broadcasts across the US and Canada that launched on December 11th, 2015.

Prior to 2018, AuraWorldwide was available in most countries, including the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

History

AuraWorldwide launched on December 11th, 2015 as Nickelodeon Family Latin America.

On May 22nd, 2016, Nickelodeon Family expanded internationally as Corus Entertainment rebranded two Nick Family channels in Canada into Canadian versions of G Network.

On December 16th, 2016, the channel was rebranded as Nickelodeon Family International. Meanwhile, the Latin American feed was relaunched on July 31st, 2017.

On July 1st, 2018, in order to cross-promote the Aura branding across the United States, Germany, and Southeast Asia, Nickelodeon Family International was rebranded as AuraWorldwide.

Decline

Due to the rise of shows having their rights exclusive to certain networks, it is unknown whether or not AuraWorldwide would continue to be available past January 2019. As more and more series became exclusive to certain networks, Latin America and Brazil stopped carrying AuraWorldwide in September 2018, followed by the UK and Australia one month later.

French (except for Quebec) and German-speaking regions stopped carrying the channel in November 2018.

Aura ceased distribution of the channel in Greenland upon the lawsuit against its Disney XD feed on November 8th, 2018.

The channel ceased operations in the rest of Europe on November 30th, 2018. Soon after, Aura ceased distribution of the channel in regions of Africa where the channel was allowed to be carried without blackouts due to low ratings.

Aura ceased operations of the Asian feed (which covered Southeast Asia, South Korea, and Japan) on December 12th, 2018. As of December 15th, 2018, only the US and Canada continue to receive the channel. On September 8th, 2019, Aura announced that the channel would be sold off in the near future.

On October 12th, 2019, Aura put the channel up for sale.
