RIP: SOAPnet to End on December 31


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."
