    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Nearly three months after licensing the rights to “” and “” from ABC, Prospect announces the launching of a new web channel, The Online Network, which will air both soaps along with the upstart company’s other current and future programming.

    According to a press release, the new site will launch in January “with the goal of eventually providing viewers with a full programming selection of first-run, long form content on an anytime, anywhere basis.”

    “We are creating to conveniently deliver fans of quality television long-form programming anytime and anywhere. With broadband availability in 70% of US households and the proliferation of internet enabled televisions, DVRs and wireless devices, ultimately we believe that online distribution provides the best platform to access 30 and 60 minute entertainment content. The viewer response to the shows we have licensed has been tremendous, and we have much more in development to appeal to a broad audience base,” adds Prospect Park co-founders and .

    Furthermore, it appears that Canadian fans of the soaps will be in luck, as ABC Soaps in Depth tweets that our friends north of the border will be able to watch “AMC” and “OLTL” on The Online Network as well.

    In related news, is reporting that “at launch time TOLN will be strictly ad-supported, like most online video hubs,” however that has yet to be confirmed by Prospect Park.

    Fans wanting to receive updates regarding The Online Network, as well as its show (including “AMC” and “OLTL”), can register with your e-mail address or cell phone number at www.TOLN.com or www.theonlinenetwork.com.

    “All My Children” aired its final episode on ABC last Friday, while “One Life to Live” will last end its network run on January 13, 2012. Both shows are expected to resume with Prospect Park early next year.

      ABC made such a major mistake in removing – all my children & soon to be removed
      one life to live!! If they would only understand how important the soaps mean to its
      viewers. Can these executives imagine no more sports., news. The soaps are
      just as important.
      I have always been a loyal follower of all three soaps on abc. Even when I worked
      full time I would record the shows and watch them at night.
      Even when I was in the hospital delivering my children.,, I made sure my soaps
      were recorded. When I went on vacation I always had both my tvs at home going
      to record my soaps.
      ABC has lost a true follower in me. no more – the view, eyewitness news 12:00 &
      5:00, no more who wants to be a millionaire.
      I will only be true to my soaps as long as they may last.
      Even my husband ., he is true to me and our soaps., he told me that he will not
      watch Dancing with the stars – and he loves that show.
      My heart is so sad and crying inside and out. Of such a loss of all my
      friends of all my children.
      I am certainly looking forward to watching it again on the online website once it
      starts.
      To all of the wonderful actors, writers, Directors and anyone else who worked
      on the soaps. Thank You For adding so much Happiness, Laughs and tears
      to all of our lives!! Love You All!! Debra

      I loved AMC since it started and I am so happy that Prospect Park is going to keep it going. They will have millions of viewers. I’m even thinking about buying a new TV so I can hook it up to my computer! Thank you PP!
