On July 2, 2010, Jay Switzer (co-founder of Hollywood Suite), was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a specialty television channel called The Love Channel, described as "a national, English‑language Category 2 specialty programming service devoted to romance, love and relationships."[2]

While initially set to be launched on November 14, 2011, after several short delays, the channel was launched on November 23, 2011 as Hollywood Festival exclusively in HD along with three other HD channels.[3]

On May 31, 2012, Hollywood Suite announced it had reached a partnership with Sony Pictures Television to re-launch two of its channels under Sony brands. Hollywood Festival became a Canadian version of Sony Movie Channel on September 4, 2012, and focuses primarily on films from the Sony Pictures library.[4][5] At the time of the rebrand, AXN Investments Inc. took a 46.66% ownership in the channel.

On September 11, 2015, Hollywood Suite announced that it would reformat its movie networks to use decade-based formats; Sony Movie Channel would be re-branded as Hollywood Suite 90s Movies on November 3rd, focusing exclusively on movies from 1990-99.[6]
