Here is how it will work:  There will be ten episodes offered up in the inaugural week, starting next Monday June 17, with seven new episodes released each Monday.  Each episode will be available for four weeks.

“We are very happy to be offering Days of our Lives fans an opportunity to keep up with the show in Australia,” Phil Lynch, senior vice president, digital networks and games for Sony Pictures Television, said.  “There has been an outpouring of support from fans across Australia, telling us how much Days of our Lives means to them,” added Mark Young, senior vice president, distribution, Australia & New Zealand for Sony Pictures Television. “We are delighted to be partnering with Crackle to help viewers keep up with the daytime drama as we solidify long term plans.”

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)

Is there any way I can watch Days of Our Lives in New Zealand online? Choice TV started showing it again just over a year ago, but only bought a year’s episodes and it’s not screening here at the moment.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
