Their emissions began in September 1997 after the launch of the Vía Digital cable operator. It made suspense, horror and comedy films made in the United States in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as pornographic films starting at 12:00 a.m. At the end of 1999, it was acquired by Mediapark and its programming focused on horror films (although maintaining the share of pornographic films at midnight).

Dark/Canal 18

Dark began on November 1, 2006, after separating the contents of Canal 18, maintaining the brand for adult-only broadcasts, and using the Dark brand for horror and suspense films. The first broadcast at dawn, from 1:00 to 5:00 and Dark from 9:30 to 1:00 (Dark from 9:30 to 0:00 and Canal 18 from 0:00 to 5:00 on Janurary 2009).

Buzz Rojo/Canal 18

2009–2013

On July 1, 2009, Teuve decided to merge Buzz and Dark / Canal 18, keeping the Buzz and Canal 18 brands, and disappearing the Dark brand.

On February 1, 2011, Chello Multicanal decided to re-launch the Dark channel maintaining the name of Buzz Rojo / Canal 18, which means that since that day Buzz Rojo broadcasts more movies and horror series as did Dark when it aired. Its programming goes from 09:30 to 00:00, time in which it gives way to Canal 18 and its programming for adults.

On September 2, 2013, due to legal issues, Chello Multicanal eliminated Canal 18 after 16 years of uninterrupted broadcasting and was replaced by Dorcel TV , another European channel that was born in 2006 and that also emits erotic content.
