With “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” having successfully re-launched earlier this year via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada by Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network (TOLN), it was only a matter of time before “A Tribute to Pine Valley” and “Loving Llanview” no longer became necessary. Today, Celebrity Events Group announced that now is your last chance to purchase merchandise featuring the ABC incarnations of both soaps on T-shirts, mugs, champagne glasses, sweatpants, magazines, and more. “Our Warehouse is Closing!” read a message sent out to subscribers of its mailing list.
OWN announced today plans to air a mini-marathon of its summer fling consisting of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.”
As previously reported, both “AMC” and “OLTL” will join the OWN lineup airing Mondays through Thursdays. However, on Monday, July 15, both soaps will launch with a marathon of back-to-back half-hour episodes airing in different timeslots. The first three episodes of “AMC” will air from 12:00-1:30 PM ET/PT, with the third episode repeating at 1:30 PM ET/PT. From 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, “OLTL” will air its first three episodes with the third episode repeating at 3:30 PM ET/PT.
Beginning today, July 1, The OnLine Network has begun releasing episodes of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” Netlfix style with Mondays now known as “Soap Mondays,” where each week the company will post to both Hulu and iTunes new episodes of each soap and “MORE” on Mondays. In addition, episodes will now be published by episode number instead of by weeks as had been the case since the shows launched in late April.

As a result of OWN picking up the cable rights to the first 40 episodes of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” many wanted to know what that meant for “MORE,” the series that gives fans just that at the end of each week, or on Mondays now that it, along with “AMC” and “OLTL” will release new episodes Netflix style beginning Monday, July 1. Soap Opera Network has the answer.

“For 2 years u posted, tweeted, Facebooked me..I heard you. Starting 7/15, we’re having a summer fling w/ the soaps!” read Oprah Winfrey‘s tweet to her more than 19 million Twitter followers shortly after news of OWN picking up both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” for a limited engagement this summer. Both soaps begin airing Monday, July 15, for a Monday through Thursday run, with “AMC” airing in its old 1:00 PM ET timeslot and now PT as well, while “OLTL” will air at 3:00 PM ET/PT.
Oprah Winfrey has come through for soap fans after all! For a special summer soap opera event, the legendary daytime star’s network has acquired the rights to the first 40 episodes of The OnLine Network’s “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” both of which will air for an exclusive 10-week limited engagement.
Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network announced earlier today its decision to release all weekly episodes of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” on Mondays, instead of the previously scheduled Mondays and Wednesdays for “AMC” and Tuesdays and Thursdays for “OLTL,” beginning Monday, July 1. Jeff Kwatinetz, co-founder, Prospect Park, tells Soap Opera Network via email, “The only difference is greater availability,” when asked how the change affects upcoming airdates of both soaps. “If [viewers] still want to watch one ep each day, or just an ‘AMC’ ep every Monday or Wed, there will be a new one there. If they want to watch the full weeks shows at once starting Monday they will all be there. This is completely giving MORE options to viewers. How could that be a bad thing?”
