Nostalgic is a television channel owned by Bachmann Holdings, NBCUniversal, Laserium Holdings and Hyper Holdings (through Nostalgic TV Partners LLC).
Nostalgic was originally planned to be founded in 2004, but Bachmann Holdings was on a financial crisis. After several cases that Viacom was trying to take over the channel and make it into one of their Nick brands, Viacom left the joint venture that owns Nostalgic, later being replaced by Laserium Holdings. Turner Broadcasting System and GBC Television Group expressed interest in joining the joint venture. It announced it was going to enter the FTA market. In 2016, Nostalgic's logo became more customizable, encouraging creativity among ident creators for Nostalgic, and the text has been shrunk slightly. It is believed that this changed was to promote it's entrance in the FTA market. Laserium Holdings announced to launch the French version, Nostalgique, with Canwest Media and Nostalgic TV Partners.
