For weeks, Soadpom's Canadian contingent has been asking us how can they view the reboots of All My Children and One Life to Live in Canada? Many have shared that Hulu+ and iTunes Canada are not offering the online soaps, now in production by Prospect Park's The Online Network (TOLN).
Soapdom is today delighted to tell you that Canadian fans of these two iconic soap operas will be able to see their favorite soaps directly on cable television on FX Canada.
Below is the press release that we recived just minutes ago from our sources at Prospect Park and The Online Network. Congrats to Canada. You will not miss a minute of the new broadcasts starting Monday, April 29th! Your soaps are back!
"FX Canada pumps up the drama, the passion, and the scandal with the exclusive Canadian broadcast of brand-new, 30-minute episodes of beloved serial dramas, All My Children and One Life to Live. Breathing new life into the popular series with an edgier and sexier spin, both programs reignite the classic franchises with modern themes, fresh new faces, and the return of fan-favourite characters. The long-running serial dramas premiere Monday, April 29, airing weekdays starting with All My Children at noon ET/2 p.m. PT, followed by One Life to Live at 12:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT, exclusively on FX Canada. (check local listings.)
"FX Canada is the only television network in North America to offer the new, re-imagined All My Children and One Life to Live series to subscribers. Produced by Prospect Park's The Online Network (TOLN) All My Children and One Life to Live will be available in the United States through online stream via www.hulu.com, to subscribers through Hulu Plus, and for purchase on iTunes.
"FX Canada is the exclusive broadcaster of critically acclaimed and envelope-pushing hit series such as American Horror Story, Louie, Wilfred, and The Americans.
"All My Children and One Life to Live are a unique addition to FX Canada's slate of provocative and critically-acclaimed dramas,' said Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media. "As the only television channel in North America broadcasting these new series, FX Canada continues its commitment to deliver exclusive, premium content to its viewers.'"
" 'Our partnership with Rogers answers an overwhelming demand from viewers in Canada to access our transformed All My Children and One Life to Live programming, and incrementally furthers our footprint across all of North America. We have the fans to thank for forging this partnership, and bringing their shows to Canada,' " said Prospect Park's Rich Frank. "We are grateful to the team at Rogers Media including Keith Pelley, President, Scott Moore, and Malcolm Dunlop, Executive Vice-President of Programming and Operations for sharing our vision and empowering our network to reach this very significant audience."
Once more set in the fictional East Coast suburb of Pine Valley (All My Children) and fictional town of Llanview, Pennsylvania (One Life to Live), new faces join Emmy-winning actors and writers who made these series must-watch viewing for legions of loyal fans."
Soapdom can't help but wonder if this Canadian foray into cable TV with FX Canada is not only a distribution platform for All My Children and One Life to Live for Canadian audiences, but a will also serve as a "test case" for the FX Network here in the US as well. Meaning, if viewers tune in regularly in Canada, perhaps FX will also be the place here in the US where the soaps will air on television.
