Video killed the radio star and it looks like the DVR has snuffed out the cable soap channel. According to the  LA Times, SOAPnet, the 14-year-old destination for same day reruns of fan's favorite soaps, will come to an end at the end of the year.

"SOAPnet had a great run," Ben Pyne, president of global distribution for Disney Media Networks, said in an interview Friday. "It served an audience of super-soap fans. And when given the opportunity, all of our affiliates kept the channel up and running."
