Cablevision's battle with east coast ABC7 may end soap viewing for fans! Help fight back!

As of Monday March 8 soap fans may not get to see their soaps if they have Cablevision and live in Long Island, Westchester, Brooklyn, the Bronx and selected suburbs of Connecticut and New Jersey because for the past two years ABC7 has tried, without success, to reach an agreement with Cablevision to carry ABC7.  Why?  Because Cablevision’s position is that ABC7 is worth little to nothing to its business and its proposed offers have been consistently unreasonable and unrealistic.‪ Fans can visit www.saveABC7.com to make their voices heard and for details on how to switch providers.

President and General Manager of ABC7, Rebecca Campbell, released this statement on the situation, “Year after year, ABC7 is the most watched station in New York…and the country. ‪Unfortunately, as of March 7, ABC7 may no longer be carried on Cablevision systems in Long Island, Westchester, Brooklyn, the Bronx and selected suburbs of Connecticut and New Jersey. ‪For the past two years ABC7 has tried, without success, to reach an agreement with Cablevision to carry ABC7.  Why?  Because Cablevision’s position is that ABC7 is worth little to nothing to its business and its proposed offers have been consistently unreasonable and unrealistic.‪ And that’s a shame.  ABC7 delivers some of the most popular programming carried on Cablevision today, shows like General Hospital, All My Children, One Life to Live, The View, Regis and Kelly, Oprah, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, and so much more.‪ We think these shows are valuable.  And Cablevision’s bills show that they agree, since their customers already pay for ABC7 as part of the Broadcast Basic Tier…a service for which customers pay as much as $18 each month.‪ What the bill doesn’t who is how much Cablevision pays ABC7 for these programs…nothing! That’s right, they charge customers for ABC7 then keep ALL the money.‪ABC7 will continue to work with Cablevision to reach a fair agreement, but regardless of the outcome, ABC7 is available to those areas in New York through a variety of other providers as well as free, over the air.  Customers can visit www.saveABC7.com to make their voices heard and for details on how to switch providers.‪‪‪”

Here is some more info about what fans of the terrific ABC series can do. There are two facebook sites that fans can join as well…. In addition to the website www.saveABC7.com and the phone number – 877-990-ABC7 – also the fact that Cablevision charges viewers up to $18 each month for access to ABC7…that’s $40 million from all their subscribers each month and more than $500 million dollars each year…and they aren’t paying anything for it…so why would they need to raise rates???  The facebook sites are Cablevision…Don’t take away my ABC7! and Save ABC7 New York From Cablevision Greed!

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

The Young and the Restless Wins WGA Award For A Daytime Drama

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
