Super! is an Italian television channel owned by De Agostini. The channel was launched on September 1, 2010 as DeA Super on Sky Italia. After 2 years, it changed name to Super! on March 18, 2012.[1] The network official speaker is voice actor Renato Novara.


Super! shows a variety of programs targeted towards children and teenagers. There are a number of original series, as well as acquired programming from Nickelodeon in the United States, including Sam & Cat, Zoey 101, Fanboy & Chum Chum, and more. Some acquired series on Super! are non-Nickelodeon's series, like SciGirls, Cartoon Network's Series Yo-kai Watch & Digimon Adventure tri..

Super! was the first Italian television channel airing a Korean drama, Dream High, from September 1 to October 16, 2013, the only Korean television series broadcast in Italy.[2] However, the series was heavily edited, and dubbed into Italian, names were changed to English alternatives (for example, Hye-mi became Sam, Sam-dong Brian, and Jin-guk Dylan), episodes split in two parts, some scenes cut to reduce the duration of the episodes[3] or to censor the content unsuitable for young audiences, mainly blood.[4] And finally a new Digimon series called Digimon Adventure tri.
