soap fans will conquer anything!
We are going to continue our plan of reaching out to specific Disney employees in hopes of garnering support and knowledge about the soap fans’ desires before they possibly may enter into meetings regarding AMC and OLTL.
Today we will be emailing Albert Cheng, Executive Vice President, Digital Media, Disney/ABC Television. As executive vice president, Digital Media, for the Disney/ABC Television Group, Albert Cheng is charged with general management and strategic oversight of digital media, as well as development of ancillary digital revenue streams for Disney/ABC Television Group’s diverse portfolio of broadcast and cable networks, including ABC Entertainment, ABC News, ABC Daytime, ABC Family, Disney Channel and SOAPnet. To that end, he leads a team that oversees product development, marketing and operations for the Group’s digital media content platforms, including video-on-demand, broadband, web-based and mobile platforms, as well as interactive television technologies.
Below is a sample message. Feel free to use it as-is or tweak to your liking. Our only request is that you keep your message nice. We need to get some Disney employees on our side and pro-soap fan.
I truly enjoyed having AMC and OLTL available to watch online during their long run on ABC. I know that many people watched online when they missed an episode and some viewed them solely online. Since the cancellation so many more soap fans have migrated online and started using Facebook, iTunes, Youtube, etc. This proves the point that soap fans will conquer technology in order to view their shows. Disney may be about to get the rights for All My Children and One Life to Live back very soon and Vicki Dummer has said that your company will have to identify what they want to do with these shows. I encourage you to request to have these made available online as you have a large viewing audience ready to view them.
Thank you in advance for your support,
