OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

“Who are you, who are you, who are you? Why are you doing this to me?” says a frantic Dani to the man she thought was dead on The OnLine Network’s (TOLN) “One Life to Live,” which along with “All My Children” made its cable network debut on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Monday, July 15. For millions of potential viewers out there who have yet to view either soap on the internet via Hulu, Hulu Plus or iTunes, they are now being re-introduced to both soaps from the beginning as OWN signed a deal with Prospect Park (owner of TOLN) late last month to air the first 40 episodes of the current incarnations of both “AMC” and “OLTL.” OWN is billing the airings as the “OWN Summer Soap Fling.”

After two days of viewing (the first four episodes having already aired), we wondered what the OWN experience has been like for viewers who:

  • A) Watched the current incarnations on Hulu.com, Hulu Plus or iTunes
  • B) Didn’t watch the current incarnations of either series on Hulu.com, Hulu Plus or iTunes
  • C) Watched either series during their original runs on ABC, ABC.com or Hulu.com
  • D) Didn’t watch either series during their original runs on ABC, ABC.com or Hulu.com

Additionally, if you didn’t watch either soap during their original runs or their current runs on the internet, why did you start watching on OWN? Or, if you still haven’t watched either series during their original runs or their current runs on the internet, why have you still not watched the soap even with it airing on OWN?

The OWN viewing schedule is as follows:

    I have missed OLTL and All My Children on TV. Yes, I watched on HULU, but it is so much easier on OWN. Thank you Oprah!

  • Ruth

    Thanks for NOT bringing it back to us soap fans in Canada!!!! It all SUCKS big time!!!!

    • CJ

      Seriously? You CAN watch the soaps if you access iTunes or get a VPN. These options have been offered/discussed so many times that my patience with this topic is gone.

  • Dee

    Its much easier to access these shows on OWN. The production looks better here / online than it did on ABC. (Mainly referring to AMC.)

  • moshane58

    Watching both.PP needs a network bad and what I have found on ratings is very small.We don’t back these soaps then we will never see them get anymore cast and another netowrk won’t even look at them.

  • Mike

    I have watched both. I use Hulu Plus so I’ve watched on my big screen TV since the beginning. I am glad Oprah is doing this. My only issue is—I don’t have an HD OWN channel. I have been re-watching the episodes on OWN but they look better on Hulu Plus because they are in HD.

  • nancy

    I only watched the first new episodes of both shows on the internet. I did not find it interesting or compelling enough to take time out of my day to sit down and watch on line. NOW that the shows are on OWN, I have not missed an episode. I can DVR the episode if I am busy and watch at a time that I choose. Yes, I know I can do that on line too, but really sometimes, you have to play around and search for the episode that you want to watch. If you have missed a few, it can be too time consuming. Moreover there is nothing like surround sound and a big screen to watch these shows! Thank you OWN for running both of these shows AMC and OLTL, I only hope that you continue airing beyond this summer run!!

    I have watched online since the beginning. But I am thrilled that they are back on TV for the older viewers who weren’t willing to watch online or couldn’t for one reason or other. The more viewers, the better the chance that they will survive and hopefully thrive.

  • Cimdy

    Everyone has said what I have felt!! No time to watch online…WAY MUCH BETTER ON TV!! Miss Oprah, THANK U SOOOOO MUCH FOR LISTENING to us, and PLEASE continue to carry these 2 classics for as long as the wonderful actors will play them!!! Have watched both for over 30 yrs and they are my STRESS relief!! I just hope some of our favorite characters will return!!! God how we miss ” La Lucci”!!!!
