The channel has its origins in TV6, a Swedish women's channel started in 1994. In 1998, the channel was changed into a pan-Nordic pay channel showing nature documentaries from 6 p.m to 9 p.m. ("TV6 Nature World") and then action movies and series from 9 p.m. to midnight ("TV6 Action World"). In 2002, the channel was renamed and became Viasat Nature and Viasat Action.

The content on Viasat Action was gradually shifted to include more crime series such as Law & Order and CSI. This strand was therefore rebranded into Viasat Crime on 1 October 2005. After several years as a six-hour channel, Viasat Nature/Crime extended its broadcasting hours on 1 February 2007. Viasat Nature would now broadcast from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. when Viasat Crime took and broadcast until midnight.

Nickelodeon Scandinavia started broadcasting from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. later on and continued to do so until 2007 when Viasat Nature extended its broadcasting hours.
