  • October 21, 1963 - DYXL-TV channel 4, the first television station in Western Visayas, was launched by CBN (later merging into ABS-CBN from ABS).
  • 1973 - After the declaration of Martial Law by then-President Ferdinand Marcos, and the takeover of ABS-CBN by his crony, Roberto Benedicto, DYXL-TV reopened as DYBW-TV, and became part of the Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (opposite DYCB-TV 3 in Cebu).
  • 1978 - Channel 4 became an owned-and-operated station of the government-owned GTV (later the Maharlika Broadcasting System, now People's Television Network). The call letters were reverted to the original DYXL-TV.
  • June 28, 1988 - DYXL-TV reopened under ABS-CBN, its original network and carries a variant of the Star Network ident with the famous numerical gold tri-ribbon channel 4 logo with a star at the end, with the number 4 being made up of three white stripes (later changed to the red, green and blue stripes, matching that of Channel 2 Manila's later idents).
  • December 12, 1988 - TV Patrol Negros (first known as TV Patrol 4 from 1988 to 1995/as TV Patrol Western Visayas from 1995 to 2001 tandem with TV Patrol Panay/as TV Patrol Bacolod from 2001 to 2007) becomes the station's flagship newscast.
  • 1989 - DYXL-TV started domestic satellite broadcasts to bring live broadcasts of Manila-sourced national programming to viewers in Negros Island. Months after the launch of the domestic satellite broadcast, the station's signal became reachable to viewers in Guimaras and Iloilo.
  • January 27, 1992 - DYXL-TV is relaunched as the network's flagship Negros station in preparation for the launch of the new Radio/TV Regional Network division (later renamed as Regional Network Group in 1995).
  • May 18, 1996 - ABS-CBN Bacolod moves to its state-of-the-art broadcast complex along 26th Lacson St. Touted by many as the most advanced broadcast facility in Western Visayas, its façade is almost similar to the ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center in Manila.
  • 1998-1999 - ABS-CBN Bacolod starts local production of soap operas using Hiligaynon.
  • May 5, 2020 - ABS-CBN Bacolod went off the air temporary suspended for the second time as a result of the cease and desist order of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) after the franchise expiration.
