RIP SoapNet & what this means for next day viewing :(

Happy New Year guys. As I am sure you all know by now SoapNet is gone!
But what you may not know is that ABC is now limiting next day streaming of GH
to paying subscribers of participating pay TV affiliates and Hulu Plus,
making those of us without a subscription have those wait a full week to watch!
So let’s start the new year off with a bang, and hit all the avenues below and let them

Our Message, “I’m mourning the loss of Soap Net. Your company makes the idiotic decision to cancel AMC and OLTL and now you remove all options to stay connected to these iconic shows along with other soap operas including vintage GH. Now to top it all off you limit next day streaming of GH to paying subscribers of participating pay TV affiliates and Hulu Plus, making those of us without a subscription have those wait a full week to watch! Do you really not want soap fan viewership to your networks and shows? I’m waiting for a BIG gesture from ABC to know that fans like me matter to you. It’s a new year, turn over a new leaf.”
