(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Only two weeks removed from CTV’s decision to drop the long-running ABC soap “One Life to Live” from their fall schedule, another Canadian broadcaster steps up to the plate.

As we first reported to you back on June 2nd, CTV has announced plans to remove Agnes Nixon created suder from their ‘A’ channel’s line-up come September, and replace it with “ER” reruns. 

The move left Canadians only option of watching the daily happenings in the town of Llanview, Pennsylvania, being the direct ABC Network feed.  However, luckily for “OLTL” fans north of the border, another network, Sun TV, revealed plans to pick up the daytime drama.

The Quebecor Media owned network reports that “OLTL” will maintain its 2:00 pm et time slot, in order for Sun TV to simulcast the broadcast from ABC affiliate WKBW in Buffalo, New York. “The network has analog transmitters across Ontario (Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton and London), and is also available on Bell (satellite) and Rogers (digital) throughout the rest of the country,” according to a press release. 

“One Life to Live” airs weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
