As of today, Canadian viewers will no longer see All My Children and One Life to Live carried on FX Canada.  In a statement, by FX Canada’s parent company, Rogers Media they related the following  “Due to changes in production beyond our control,  FX Canada will no longer be airing All My Children and One Life to Live. Beginning Monday, May 20, back-to-back episodes of critically-acclaimed series 30 Rock will air from noon to 1 p.m. ET on FX Canada.”

A Prospect Park rep told Soaps in Depth, “The terms of the F/X Canada deal stipulated a five day run. Now that the shows have been reduced, the agreement is no longer valid. However, the great news is that Canadian viewers can now access the shows via iTunes Canada.”

Yes, On-Air On-Soaps can confirm that All My Children and One Life to Live are available in Canada on iTunes! Episodes are currently priced at $9.99 via multi-pass access or $1.99 per episode.  If you want to get the latest episodes of AMC on iTunes click here!  If you want the latest episodes of OLTL on iTunes Canada click here!

So, will you make sure not to miss a minute of AMC and OLTL and download new episodes via iTunes if you are in Canada?  If you are a AMC and OLTL fan, were you tuning-in to FX Canada over the past few weeks?  Or, were you not catching the episodes on the cable network?  Share your thoughts!

Well, this saddens me as I have been regularly watching the shows on FX Canada and enjoying every second. I purchased a multi-pass on itunes for the next 20 episodes, but I have to say, if a free option is not brought to Canada I will likely bow out eventually. I love both shows, and even more since (as far as I’m concerned) the writing has improved vastly. BUT… Fifty bucks for 100 episodes seems like a lot overall. I hope that PP is working on another option and am sticking with it for now. I guess I’ll see what… Read more »

I am truly becoming scared that this project is in serious trouble. I will be beyond devastated if it all falls apart and all of those ill wishers are proven right. I myself watch the episodes here in the states on Hulu plus as well as purchase episodes on Itunes. I do not understand what couldbbe going wrong, any business model takes into consideration every conceivable possiblity before launch, was this launch before being truly ready? The news we have been receiving lately makes it a challenge for loyal fans of both shows to keep the faith.

It is in serious trouble. Next will be US fans having to pay then cancellation this summer. The lawsuit against ABC & the timing was fishy. The episode changes per week were troubling. This news just proves PP doesn’t know what it is doing.

They should have started out with fewer episodes then increased them. I really think this puts them in jeopardy. People could lose interest and Hulu and iTunes could drop them. And it really sucks that we lost John Starr and Todd on GH because of a show that now only airs 2x a week.

I was so excited the first couple of weeks but its going to be too slow paced to enjoy it now. I’ll still watch for now, but I don’t see it lasting and keeping the momentum of the last 3 weeks.

Nice way to try to spin this. The good news is that you can pay for the shows Canadian fans instead of watching them for free! Aren’t you happy? This is ridiculous. First PP sues ABC in an attempt to get more money, now they lower their episode count knowing full well this will affect their contract with FX Canada and inconvenience their fans. Is PP that desperate for cash???? Regardless of how this gets spun, PP has no idea what they are doing or is looking for a short term cash infusion. This will not be a long term… Read more »

There has never been a free option in Canada…..maybe you were lucky enough to already be paying a TV package that included the channel so it made no difference to you, but many had to pay extra to upgrade packages, get cable boxes, switch providers etc.

Lisa, you are incorrect. FX Canada was free with Shaw basic digital cable service. I too had it included with my cable on FX Canada channel 156 at no additional charge ever. I called shaw to make sure this was not just a promotion and no it is part of your regular cable package. Very few people in this day and age do not already have digital tv in Canada so yes but same as ABC you were paying a Cable provider somewhere.But point is it was on cable this was excellent! This was how I watched every day as… Read more »

Lisa

Lindy, I am not incorrect as FX Canada cost me $100 cancellation fee with Bell, a set up fee with Rogers and more. Several people have said they had to pay to upgrade their packages as with companies like Rogers FX Canada is part of the VIP cable package and they only had the basic package. So while it may have been free to you as your cable bill already included the station, which you’re lucky it was, for many this was not the case and they saw an increase to their monthly cable bill just to get the channel… Read more »

jimh
Guest

The first problem with the reboots is they took too long coming back and some viewers lost interest. Second soaps need network exposure…not everyone has internet. The fox network shouldve aired these reboots exactly the way pp planned them…actor pay cuts, filmed in conneticut, and aired 4 times a week with FRi airing a recap storyline of each show…the cursing, explicit sex scenes, should be dropped to attract the viewers who did not tune in because of it. Cut the gloominess and violence in half(the mob violence under guza nearly killed gh) replace this with more family drama, romance and… Read more »

Also how about some in place advertising…oltl could show Jeffry and Destiny at a Subway or Mcdonalds and Janes on amc could serve coke or pepsi products…i know these shows already seem to have too long commercial breaks but the added in place advertising could generate more money profit for these shows which is greatly needed…

jimh

Also publicity gimmicks like Jcows guest appearances as Shelters bartender should be dropped, and it would save pp some money as well…get a cheaper extra for the part.

First of all, I don’t blame FX Canada for deciding to discontinue airing AMC and OLTL. I was so grateful to them for taking this on and being able to actually view on my television rather than on line. It was like a dream come true! Wow, it was great while it lasted but Prospect Park shamefully did not fulfill their part of the contract. I think this turn of events by PP causes me to be more saddened than when the shows were cancelled in 2011 and that’s saying a lot! I’m not ashamed to admit I was devastated… Read more »

My sentiments exactly! I watched both shows since the beginning and when they were cancelled, I lost my best friends; I was devastated. I was thrilled FX was hosting them and signed up for that channel immediately. I can’t afford iTunes so I’m devastated again and have a channel I will no longer watch. So sad.

SoapFan

I think the first problem with the reboots was PP biting off more than they could chew. I read the suggestion here – they should have kept OLers on GH and launched AMC while still receiving revenue from ABC for leasing the 3 OL characters. It was silly to launch both shows at once & even sillier to sue ABC right before the launch. It reeked of desperation and made it seem like the programs were already in danger. They could have launched O L after the AMC launch, after they began making a profit.

jimh
Guest
jimh

PP lawsuit was a big mistake…they argued gh wrote for the ol characters without their consent and gh had to write them off as if they were never there but then the oltl storylines included what mostly happen with the Todd baby switch storyline anyway! At first i put most blame on abc but now pp are the biggest idiots here…they shouldve allowed all three characters continue on gh, and used them on oltl when they were needed…both shows couldve benefitted from crossover storylines as some fans wouldve followed John, Todd and Starr on both shows…John and Natalie couldve appeared… Read more »

Sorry FX Canada, it was you I was blaming for no longer hosting my soaps but as I’ve read comments here, I see that it is PP I should be blaming. However, when it’s all said and done, I no longer have soaps to watch so I’m the loser in all of this. I’m losing my bf’s once again.

these dumbass kiddie story lines are what killed oltl in the first place! there are so many talented older actors on the show that dont get nearly enough story lines! they should also learn that the annoying music they play drowns out the characters voices and makes people want to turn their computers off, not watch!

No matter what happens, and I hope OLTL survives, I think all the actors were there and present ready to make this work. OLTL was suppose to be set in real time, a year and a half from where ABC’s ended… they failed to say that there would be no expiations as to Victor, Starr, Jessica, and John. I think this left a big hole in the first two weeks of the reboot. It seemed OLTL was finally starting to get some stories of their own going, but it should make the most of the time that is left to… Read more »

Something is really wrong here. I’m afraid to get too invested now. What could have happened in 2 short weeks that made everything crumble? Whole thing is absurd. I think that prospect has to be totally honest with us. Their survey had no validity in such a short time frame. I feel bad for the actors . i think they were stunned by this also. Although I have to believe they were warned of this before it went public. So will someone out there let us know what gives.

That’s exactly how I feel. This is disgraceful to the fans and to the actors/film crew to reboot this whole thing – for what? I don’t trust PP to make sound business decisions. When ABC cancelled AMC the fittest time around – on principal I stopped watching ABC entirely. So ultimately they lost me at the expense of all their other shows because I banned their entire network. I’ve watched AMC for 40 years. This whole thing disgusts me. ***if anyone remotely connected with the show reads all of the comments here, then you should make sure the powers that… Read more »

PP big mistake was its lawsuit against abc…they shouldve allowed GH keep the characters of John, Todd, and Starr, especially since oltl used most of their gh storyline anyway…plus it was good publicity for both shows with the crossover references…now pp is the biggest looser here. what abc shouldve done was air the 30 minute reboots for 6 months from sept. to jan. then aired the chew from feb. to august. with oltl and amc returning every 6 months with new episodes…and then the chew would air for six months with its new episodes ect.

I agree. The marketing logic of PP escapes me. They should be trying to get these two shows out to every free medium they can possibly get their hands on. Not trying to sell the shows direct to the viewers thru iTunes & the like. The shows should be making their money on advertising sponsorships. Various sites display the show and viewers end up buying something thru the site = advertising dollars = air time. The more viewers the more sales. It’s a simple concept really. Whomever they have in their marketing dept should be fired. A few small changes… Read more »

I was really enjoying them on FXCanada, so I’m disappointed. I’m a Shaw subscriber, so that channel was already included in my digital package. I bought the multipack for both AMC & OLTL on iTunes, but it’s now 6pm Mountain time and today’s AMC is not yet available, which is ridiculous. I’ve canceled the automatic renewal on iTunes Canada as I won’t be watching via them if that’s the kind of service they’re going to provide. Instead I’ve downloaded Spotflux and have signed up for hulu.com Congrats Prospect Park, you’ve turned a lot of Canadians into illegal downloaders 😉

Wow – after three weeks, the shows release cycle has been cut in half, and they’ve lost their Canadian distribution platform. Clearly, the number of people streaming and downloading are coming in FAR lower than Prospect Park ever anticipated. That’s the thing with internet distribution – the numbers are exact, and aren’t disputable (unlike TV ratings, which take a sample and extrapolate). My guess is that the shows won’t go back into production in August.

Soap fans can say they knew her when, and tomorrow on the Thursday, November 5th episode of the syndicated talker Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly Ripa, celebrates her 30th anniversary with the Walt Disney Company and ABC.

Ripa started her journey as Hayley Vaughan on All My Children, a role she made her debut with back in 1990.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.
