Minimax is a Central-European cartoon channel which has been broadcast in Hungary since 1999; Romania since 2001; Czech Republic and Slovakia since 2003 and Serbia since 2007. Earlier, since 1999 - 2004 it has been broadcast in Poland. In Hungary, as of April, 2007, it shares the channel slot with Animax (anime) after 8 PM. Former TV channels which shared with Minimax includes MusicMax (music videos, now MusicMix), Game One (video games), later iTV (video games), and m+ (entertainment, now Cool TV).

The main policy goals of Minimax are: edutainment, non-violence, brand new shows and local classics. These policy goals have meant that the channel is much appreciated by younger children and their parents.[citation needed]

Cartoons that have been broadcast are: Geronimo Stilton, Redwall, Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea, Barbie movies, Animalia, The Secret World of Benjamin Bear, Bindi the Jungle Girl, Thomas and Friends, Toad Patrol, Play with Me Sesame and Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action.


Minimax was first aired in Spain in 1993 and encrypted using the Nagravision encryption system from the SES Astra Satellites 1B and 1C at 19.2 degrees east. The channel was part of the Canal Satellite España channel bundle, which included CineMania, CineClassics, Documania and later SportMania. In 1996, Minimax began airing "Nickelodeon en Minimax", a small segment of Nickelodeon branded programmes with Spanish dubbing, including Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life. In the same year, Minimax was sold to Paramount a few months later. The channel was rebranded as Nickelodeon in 1999.
