Hulu

Earlier today we reported on word that would not be airing online episodes of “” and “” on /, as had originally been expected, following today’s announcement by the company that Hulu, the green internet hub owned by , and , had acquired digital distribution rights to both series via Hulu’s subscription and free-to-view platforms. In a posting on its Tumblr page, Hulu clarified that news report.

Some really cool news about a couple of American institutions: “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” are coming back from the dead to love you once again. But that’s not the big deal. Presumed-dead-love-of-your-life always finds a way to make it back and sweep you away. This is how soaps work.

Here’s the big deal: They’ll be exclusively on Hulu every day starting this year. Fans of watching people get left at the altar and faking comas—unite!

Seriously, people. This is a good time to call your mom. She’ll remember down the line. Then watch some, too, by mistake, and get addicted.

Per the agreement, Hulu will manage the advertising sales for both shows, and package integrated sponsorship opportunities. TOLN will also offer ecommerce and other digital marketing programs to brands and entities looking to tap into Hulu’s mass market demographic. Additionally, Hulu will promote both series across its subscription and free-to-view platforms.

When “AMC” and “OLTL” debut in April, as expected, fans can expect to view advertising supported brand new episodes of both series each weekday via viewing capabilities on Hulu’s website and its multi-platform technologies, including internet enabled TVs, mobile phones, tablets and PCs. This includes gaming devises such as Xbox 360, Wii-u, PS3 and much more.

Fans will be able to purchase individual episodes, and possibly a season pass of the soaps, for commercial free viewing via Apple’s iTunes Store.

    It make me wonder why Prospect Park created Toln and The Online Network if my two favorite series isn’t go to show it. I hope that it will be show on Online Network and Hulu/Hulu Plus and Itunes. Good luck to the future.

    If you have access to a laptop you can connect it to your tv via a HDMI cable and still watch free on your tv…Hulu plus is so worth the 7.99 per month too…I now only pay for basic cable bcuz of the shows available on hulu

    Do you know what the time frame of a season would be? $21.99 every six to eight weeks for each alternating show? Or would $21.99 cover a season of each? Do you think there’s any chance PP & iTunes would offer an annual pass? Most of us have been watching for years. Thanks!

    Is it going to be free to watch? Is this saying we have to pay to see it? I do NOT want to see Caleb and Livvie on GH . I do not want them on as vampires!
