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.

This is great news for Australian DAYS fans! Congrats Aussies!

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.

Days of our Lives should be seen in every country!

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)

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
