Good for them! I have added the Crackle app to my Roku on my TV. Have watched it a few times (they have a lot of free episodes of “Sanford & Son,” btw) and liked it. Seemed to have a lot of commercials, though. More than HuluPLUS even.

What is strange is; Y&R, BB, DOOL, are shown in other countries.
(Y&R, BB in 32 countries)
And GH is only in USA and Canada..

Because Y&R, B&B and DAYS are run by production companies. GH is run by ABC/Disney. Sony and Bell have contracts with other countries, ABC does not. That’s why.

A clue as to how Y&R can be the #1 soap for 3 decades, with BB following..
Y&R has had some really terrible years, and yet stayed at #1..
Goes to show that having more viewers doesn’t mean it is the best soap..

Thank you so much, I have been trying to catch up to date with America by watching Dool on you tube but unfortunately everytime I find a site sony axe it which is so frustrating, so once again thank you very much I cant wait to watch Dool on line again.

Is Sony going to license them to broadcast current episodes of Y&R too? In Australia Foxtel has the rights but shows episodes that are about 9 months behind. Ridiculous I know. I would love a stable source of up to date episodes online.

I wish Agnes Nixon had never sold her soaps to ABC..
In her hands they would have soared to #1 above all others and perhaps she would have shown them in 40 countries.

(maybe she regrets selling the 2 soaps)

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
