Dusk (branded as DUSK) is a Canadian English language Category B specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment and Shaw Media that was launched in September 2001. The channel primarily airs movies along with television series from the thriller, suspense and supernatural genres.
Licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in November 2000, the channel launched less than a year later on September 7, 2001 as Scream under the ownership of Corus Entertainment and Alliance Atlantis. Programming on Scream focused primarily on horror, thriller and suspense films and television series.
On January 18, 2008, a joint venture between Canwest and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners known as CW Media bought Alliance Atlantis for an estimated $2.3 billion (CAD); included in that deal was Alliance Atlantis' 49% stake in Scream.
On September 9, 2009, Scream re-launched as Dusk. With the re-launch, the channel began to focus more on supernatural and suspense programming and less on "gore" in an effort to appeal to a broader viewer demographic.
On October 27, 2010, Shaw Communications completed its acquisition of Canwest, and Goldman Sachs' interest in CW Media, giving it control of CW Media's 49% interest in Dusk. Both companies are controlled by J.R. Shaw and his family, but are operated as separate businesses.
The following is a list of series airing on Dusk, as of Oct. 1, 2011:
- Da Vinci's Inquest
- Ghostly Encounters
- Poltergeist: The Legacy
- Psychic Investigators
- Scare Tactics
