POP is the renamed tv guide cable channel…call your cable provider and tell them you want POP…the channel, not coke or pepsi…lol

Jimh..
POP is a rerun channel, the programming is bottom of the barrel and not worth paying for lol
you can watch the soaps on their internet network and other places including DVRing them, recording, or On Demand and others..
No need to pay for POP to watch your soap … 🙂

su0000: Pop is a general entertainment channel but it does offer some really neat original programming (Schitt’s Creek, Big Brother After Dark, frequent entertainment specials) and marathons for Survivor, The Amazing Race and a number of CW shows. 😀

I have Comcast..
POP is on a high pay tier ..
I’m not going to put out $$$$ (to go higher up) to have POP .. lol
POP is a low budget rerun channel that also shows now 2 soaps that I can watch online 7/24
((I believe they are also on – on demand ..

If your cable provider has an ala-carte package, you can just order a smaller number of channels that you’d intend to subscribe and watch,

Hi, Julie.
Pop is on Directv Channel 273 but it is only available in some of the higher priced packages.
Wish Pop would now add General Hospital even though I don’t currently have it in my economy package.
I still miss Soapnet and wish some channel(s) would air classic soaps from the past like Santa Barbara (my all-time favorite), Another World, As The World Turns and One Life To Live.

IA with whoever said that Pop has become the new Soapnet, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad to see Pop value soap operas and re-air classic primetime shows from the ’80s and ’90s. As for DOOL, I can’t wait for all the returning vets, and now it will be easier to watch!

This is why DAYS is no longer available on Hulu.

Since downgraded on Direct TV no longer can get POP. So watch Days on Hulu if miss it during the day, but episode is not until next day. Days doesn’t show on Hulu Plus on TV, have to go to hulu.com on computer which then switches over to NBC.com I noticed when it plays. Although I pay to not have commercials on Hulu Plus, on the internet version that switches over to NBC.com have to put up with the stupid commercials. Don’t think that is fair at all. Think heard NBC is the one that controls this.

I wish GH would be broadcast on POP along with the other 3 remaining soaps. POP is affiliated with CBS so it’s unlikely, but it would be great especially with all the breaking news interrupting daytime programming.

You can tape it on DVR I do that every day most cable companys will give you one or charge a small fee theres so many things to tape

Wow! That’s great news! Wish they would add GH & old episodes of AMC & OLTL. I have always often thought it would be great to rerun a series from the very beginning. For those of us too young to remember or had to work during years prior to the invention of recording devices! It’s like losing a chunk of memory… I started watching in high school around the time Luke raped Laura on GH…1979ish…along came adulthood, marriage, babies, jobs & couldn’t watch. Started watching again off & on over the years, have been watching faithfully again since no longer… Read more »

On Dish Network, POP is channel 117. It does carry some original programming. One of my favorites, the Canadian comedy “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, is on the network. It also aired “Queens of Drama,” a “reality” show about former daytime divas trying to put together a new soap for the CW. Donna Mills headed the cast. Right now, as a CBS-owned network, it broadcasts “Big Brother After Dark” most nights, which I think is the most god-awful thing on television but to each his or her own!

Is “Pop TV” available on streaming devices such as RoKu?
On RoKu I get Netflix, Hulu + and Amazon but of course there is a monthly charge for those.
Does anyone know if Pop TV is available in this manner?

Well they aren’t marketing this very well because it took going to Hulu to watch, finding out I was being diverted to NBC.com, then just being curious enough to find out why and searching Google until I found this article on the 3rd result page. I’m worried because I have a busy enough life that I can’t watch the show every day and Hulu was great for that. I would binge watch several episodes even up to the point of the episode that was leaving the site. Will there still be several episodes on the website? Will my On Demand… Read more »

I never understood why TV networks, such as Pop or SoapNet, broadcast same-day episodes. Doesn’t everyone have at least a VCR, a DVR, or Internet access to watch those episodes on their respective network Web sites? I agree with others that it would be more entertaining to show older episodes of these and other shows. If it was soap operas, I would love to see classic episodes of shows that aren’t on anymore, or older episodes of shows currently still on the air. (Wouldn’t it have been fun to watch 50 classic episodes of Days of our Lives to celebrate… Read more »

You can watch it on xfinity demand if you have that. Most of the time I watch it on my iPad or iPhone. Just want to add I did see the show today during it’s air time at 1 – I may be the only person, but I liked the Rafe/Hope scenes. Perhaps, anything is better than the murder, ugly, dark scenes they have been showing. Also, Chad was outstanding when he was crying and said good bye to Abby – so realistic, heartfelt, and true emotion. Show was better today than I have seen Ina long time. Keep the… Read more »

Please, please restore the showing of Days of Our Lives. I am not watching any of the other things you have put on in its place. I can’t always watch the show during the day, and I really appreciated having it on your channel in the evenings.

Why did POP stop carrying Days of Our Lives? Not everyone can be home during the day. My first blame was COMCAST.. They are getting too big and too expensive
. Can’t POP work something out with them for evening (daily reruns?) It certainly makes one keep looking around for new carriers and user friendly networks.

Thanks for your consideration.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Photo: JPI

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
