Corus Entertainment announced on June 26th 2009 that its specialty network Scream would be rebranded as Dusk, effective September 9, 2009.
The relaunch was planned to see the service expand its programming scope to include a more extensive lineup of movie titles and series that appealed to a broader demographic.
Corus said that Dusk would cater to adults 18 – 49, and would offer viewers access to a lineup of suspense, thriller and supernatural-based Hollywood feature films and television series seven days a week, 24-hours-a-day.
Dusk continued as a partnership between Corus Entertainment Inc. and Canwest Global Communications Corp.
On March 27, 2012 Corus Entertainment announced that it had shut down its Dusk channel on March 23rd, to make room for its new family-oriented channel ABC Spark, which launched on March 26th.
