Guess what guys? Beginning January 14th, not only will you be able to catch General Hospital on SOAPnet the same day the show airs, but now, you can also watch it online at ABC.com thanks to the site's full episode player. Along with General Hospital, same day episodes of The View will also be available. It's part of Disney-ABC Television Group's plan to connect viewers with their favorite shows anytime and anywhere. But you'll have to stay up late to see General Hospital online.
The most recent five shows of each program will be available in the player, with the most current broadcast of “The View” available at 1:00 p.m., PT the same day it premieres and episodes of “General Hospital” becoming available for free online viewing at 2:00 a.m., PT the day after they air.
“We are excited to collaborate with the ABC.com team to offer our viewers another way to get their daily dose of ‘General Hospital’ and ‘The View’,” said Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney ABC Television Group. ”As part of our ongoing strategic effort to grow our audience and increase awareness of our shows, ABC.com is a proven platform that not only gives existing viewers more access to our shows, but is a great way to introduce a new audience to these shows.”
Combining sleek, modern design with superior user-friendly functionality, the player currently offers users more than 15 of ABC’s most popular series, many of them available in HD. Online video viewers continue to have the ability to launch the player off of ABC.com, affiliate sites, portals and video aggregator sites, as well as social network sites via the ABC.com full episode widget.
Users will also be able to access episodes of General Hospital through the recently redesigned SOAPnet.com via a link to the video player on the site’s General Hospital section.
