At launch, series carried by the channel included Prisoner of Love (Amor Cautivo), a saga about three families; and The Perfect Woman (La Mujer Perfecta), the story of six women who do everything in their might to become "perfect".

Other telenovelas and soapies to have aired on the channel include Secret Love, The Neighbour, Just Looking, Betrayed Heart, My Three Daughters, Fallen Over Love, Light My Eyes, Celia Cruz, Taxxi, We Are Family, Anything But Plain, and Football Dreams.
