Looks like TVGN (TV Guide Network) is becoming your cable soap connection!  After the cablers previously acquisition of The Young and the Restless, which debuted this past summer, now comes news that TVGN will also become the exclusive cable home to television’s most watched daytime drama series in the world, The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B), starting on Monday, December 2.

TVGN will encore the prior day’s B&B episode weekdays at 6:30 PM ET/PT, immediately preceding TVGN’s encore airings of The Young and the Restless (weekdays at 7:00 PM ET/PT). In addition, fans can catch-up on all five of the prior week’s most recent episodes on TVGN every Sunday from 11:00 AM ET/PT—1:30 PM ET/PT starting on December 8.

The Bold and the Beautiful has been one of the most popular daytime dramas on television for more than two decades and now, for the first time ever, the series will be making its cable TV debut, giving loyal viewers more opportunities to catch-up on their favorite show,”  said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment and Media, TVGN.  The Young and the Restless has made TVGN one of the top female networks in the country, weekdays at 7pm.  It only made sense to give B&B fans what they’ve been demanding from us.”

“I am looking forward to a successful partnership with TVGN,” said Bradley Bell, Executive Producer and Head Writer of The Bold and the Beautiful. “Our fans have asked us for an opportunity to watch a second run. I’m delighted that we will now be able to fulfill that desire with such an esteemed cable network.”

So what do you think about B&B finally having a cable television home?  What do you think about TVGN’s soap line-up?  Comment below!

That would be great except for those who don’t get TVGN. My cable company doesn’t carry it for some reason.
I wish all the soaps were available “On Demand”!!!

I wish that too…when i miss an episode of GH id sometimes watch it On Demand…which will be my only source once Soapnet ends…sometimes i do find it on utube. But id rather watch On Demand when i have to…

I think it is great news. Now if I happen to miss both of those soaps I can watch them that evening on TVGN.

I don’t see a cable outlet for GH unfortunately since all of Disney’s are kid oriented.
ComcastNBCU have alot of outlets to put DAYS on if they choose.

Don’t watch either and of course TVGN is a CBS sibling so we won’t be seeing GH or DOOL on that channel which is a bummer.

I can only hope GH and Days will make it there to since the idiots at ABC/Disney is shutting down soapnet. All the old shows of the soaps will be gone..Not downloading anything from ABC. Wasn’t for GH I would never turn on ABC anymore…

Me too. As a longtime Soapnet viewer I’m so disappointed (yet again) with ABC/D. My ATT Uverse doesn’t carry TVGN, but I’m happy for soap fans who have access.

Y&R and BB are the most watched daytime drama series in the world, yes the world, the 2 soaps are shown in 34 countries (GH in USA and Canada, only)

BB a Y&R can now be seen during the evening and most the day Saturday on cable TVGN.
GH is shown an hour once a week on a bad time-slot..

Y&R and BB, no matter how awful Y&R is, it will always be #1 because of marketing ..

I think that’s great! Now let them get GH and Days also…especially considering SoapNet is going away!

I hope they pick up Days

IF, GH were to be shown during the evening, it would rule the soap world..

Now, Y&R and BB is aired on network TV daytime and also cable TV evenings, and cable Saturday..

Both are not the best soaps, no matter how many viewers they get.. GH is the best soap but does not have the means to be watch on cable during the evening and Saturdays nor through out the world..

I wish ABC would run GH on one of their affiliated Cable networks during the evening..

I would love TVGN to also pick up GH, now that SoapNet will be gone as of 12/31/13, but I am not so sure that will happen, since TVGN is affiliated with CBS, so I it is unlikely that they would want to promote a soap from ABC, but I can still hope!

I think that is great but I would love to see B&B for 1 hour instead of only 1/2 hour. I am a new viewer and just fell in love with all the characters. I would only hope that 1/2 would change to a hour of the show.

Thank you,

Traci

I would love B&B to expand to a full hour also, but for a completely different reason.

Why not show the current or same day show like Y&R does. I don’t want to see the prior days show. That makes it confusing.

Come on TVGN. Bring on DOOL and GH to your line up. Your ratings will outshine all the others.

Since soapnet cancell their network, Please add General Hospital to your listing broadcasting on TVGN. When I miss General hospital during the day I like to watch it at night. I am sure your rating will out shine.

Apple Inks Multi-Year Partnership Deal With Oprah Winfrey For New Original Content

In an effort to go head to head with streaming giants Netflix and Amazon, Apple announced today a marquee signing that will give it a leg up on the competition. In an effort to ramp up its original content portfolio, they have signed multi-Emmy winner, Oprah Winfrey.

Apple said the new deal will not affect Winfrey’s contract with OWN, the television network she launched in 2011. Oprah has a contract there till 2025.

In a statement, Apple related: “Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world. Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”

As for how the deal will utilize the many talents of Oprah, it is expected she will have an on-camera role as a host and interviewer, and could be in some of her projects.

For Apple landing this deal with Winfrey and other big names will keep audiences checking out content on their iPhones and Apple TV, and potentially bring in more consumers who want to see the exclusive content from O.

Reports say that new deal with Oprah will include everything but the kitchen sink from: film, applications, books, and content that can be easily distributed across all Apple platforms.  Winfrey’s “Harpo Films” will apparently own any and all content produced under the Apple partnership.

So, what do you think of new Oprah content and programs coming to Apple? Comment below.
