HomeTVAll My ChildrenBREAKING NEWS: FX Canada to Air New Episodes of One Life to Live and All My Children! Jamey Giddens April 15, 2013 All My Children, FX Canada, Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes, One Life to Live, The Online Network, TOLN 18 Comments Since news of Prospect Park's plans to reboot One Life to Live and All My Children first began to trickle out, one big question has remained — how would our neighbors to the North watch the sudsers? That question has finally been answered. FX Canada has signed an exclusive, North American deal to air the resurrected soaps! That's right Canucks, you will be able to catch every scandalous hook-up and over-the-top return from the dead when OLTL and AMC return on April 29. AMC will air every day at noon EST/2 pm PST on the cabler. OLTL will air at 12:30/2:30 PST. “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.” Prospect Park's Rich Frank is equally pumped to be in business with the Canadians. “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 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.” Photo credit: TOLN 18 Responses appleridge April 15, 2013 So excited for all the Canadian fans Log in to Reply giogio April 15, 2013 Im real happy for my Canadian friends and alot of family. But I sure hope Rich Frank gets pumped with some American station. I want a station!!!!! Log in to Reply curacaoman April 15, 2013 How about us Brits? Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model April 15, 2013 @curacaoman: it’s Eastenders and Coronation Street for you non Yanks! Maybe they will work out the international licensing deal soon. That is where they can make some big bucks. Log in to Reply giogio April 15, 2013 Curacaoman – hope you get a deal also. We all need to be back in business!! They also need to give USA a damn tv station to watch on. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens April 15, 2013 @giogio All you need is a Blu Ray player with Hulu Plus on it. If my tech-challenged self can figure it out, anyone can! LOL Log in to Reply giogio April 15, 2013 Jamey, dont listen to me. I like to make big issues over nothing. Like hearing myself talk. I’ll be the first one there. Log in to Reply tazmaniak April 15, 2013 The content may be a problem. That new OLTL clip has Tea dropping the F-bomb. You can’t use that kind of language on American TV unless it’s a premium channel like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime or Starz. The only way it could air is if they edited everything out that wouldn’t fit on television. And even then you’d only have a few options because certain channels won’t even touch something with adult content. And I don’t know about you, but I honestly wouldn’t want to watch an edited version of the shows. One of the benefits of being online is that you have more creative and storytelling freedom without the interference of a network. Airing the shows on TV and in an edited form would completely negate that. Log in to Reply SoapyBitch April 15, 2013 Does anyone know if the episodes (via Hulu, iTunes) ill run 20 – 22 minutes or so, as if they were broadcast with commercials in the US, or are they around a full 30 minutes? It’s such a new paradigm because I was just wondering that about Arrested Development when Netflix releases that series. How long are the House of Cards episodes? Log in to Reply basilnsybil April 15, 2013 So thrilled. I thought my suggestion to have AMC and OLTL on Rogers on Demand pay per view service was good but this is even better. Big Happy Dance right now!!! Log in to Reply appleridge April 16, 2013 I read on soaps.com that Jeff Kwanitez said 30 min episodes, 5 mins of comericals so 25 mins of content Log in to Reply THEBEST April 16, 2013 THIS IS AWESOME NEWS!!!!!!! Log in to Reply mk1814 April 16, 2013 BEST! NEWS! OF! THE! DAY!! (Doing my happy dance up here in Toronto) Log in to Reply Yoryla April 16, 2013 Great news! Because this most likely means someone will put the episodes up on YT for everyone’s viewing pleasure! :crown: Log in to Reply DavidsMuse April 16, 2013 Jamey, please find out the status of a US cable outlet for the shows. Although I can watch online, MANY US fans cannot! Log in to Reply DavidsMuse April 16, 2013 Jamey, please find out the status of a US cable outlet for the shows.

How long are the House of Cards episodes?[/quote] I watched House of Cards so long ago but if my memory serves me (granted it is dodgy), House of Cards usually ran about 47-52 minutes (I think). There were no commercials because Netflix is a subscriber service. Hulu has commercials, though I cannot speak about Hulu Plus and whether or not they have commercials. I don’t think Arrested Development will have commercials, I have never seen commercials on any Netflix film or series I’ve watched. Log in to Reply SusieQ April 16, 2013 That’s great news for my fellow Canadians that have Cable. Unfortunately those of us with Satellite might not end up being able to watch it at all since Bell doesn’t carry FX due to stupid media wars with Rogers that owns it and it sounds like these are exclusive rights. Hopefully there will be a way for the rest of us in Canada to watch it. Or get it not so legally like youtube or torrents or I might have to resort to paying for one of my relatives who has cable to get the channel and then record them on a dvd for me which seems a little extreme. In the meantime, I am harassing Bell to pick up the channel. The things I do for my soaps. lol! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
