    I still hope they come up with some way to watch these on TV. I refuse to pay for Hulu Plus so I can stream them.

    Love that she is back. One of my favorite characters and actresses.

  • Jennifer

    Agreed Mike. I won’t pay to watch these shows but my understanding is that itself will be free, but with commercials, so I’ll just adapt to watching that way. If the commercials annoy me, then I’ll consider hulu plus. That aside, great news about Julia Barr. Love her!

  • James

    Oh my goodness. The ads on Hulu are barely 2 minutes per break. And Hulu gives you the option at times to pick the ads you want to see. Hulu Plus has ads as well, but I read it’s less ads.

    And is FREE. But if you fall say 2 weeks behind, you would need Hulu Plus to catch up.

    Also, I’ve watched GH on Hulu in the past. While it is neat and nice, I rather watch on TV. Although I can’t recall if has HD. I think they only have 360p and 480p.

    This is the first I heard it will be on Hulu! yeah! I thought that Prospect Park was strictly an Online Computer deal… I have Hulu Plus and they have ads, but no longer than 2 minutes and usually less.

  • moshane58

    Yeah,,,They will be on regular Hulu and I tunes to.The more the better chance we get a network again.They have to have plans to hire all the big names.soap fans rule…Maybe next our lost soaps on NBC,Been some hints..Asthey said As the World Turns.

  • Mike

    I don’t care if it has ads or not. Ads don’t bother me. Because I have bad vision …. really bad….. I can’t watch videos on my computer. I do not have the money to buy a larger monitor or I would have already done it. For typing purposes I can magnify but even full screen I can’t see the videos well enough.

    But I already have all the streaming things and cable I can afford. I can’t stream regular and would have to get Hulu Plus.

    And even besides that not all viewers like to watch TV shows on their computers. It depends on what a person likes or doesn’t like.

    The day AMC wrote out the beloved character of Brooke English and replaced her with one of the show’s most loathed character known as Krystal Carey the ratings began to fall, and the show began to deteriorate.

    THANK GOD that someone was SMART ENOUGH to bring Julia Barr back to AMC!!!! She is well loved on this show! You can’t say that about Bobbie Eeeeeeks character, Krystal!

    I remember when visiting my aunt on my lunch breaks from work in the 1980s, I’d watch some ‘All My Children’ with her because it was something she really looked forward to. She could be so upset at many of the evil characters as if they were real people, it was funny. The aunt is long gone. Julia Barr looks better than ever.

  • MBmomof3

    Love Julia Barr! So excited. Now if they’d just bring back Michael Knight and David Canary the show would be complete for me. But, I’ll still watch and hope they hop aboard down the line.

  • Joie

    Yay! Can’t wait for the new AMC and OLTL!!!

  • Mike


    David Canary is returning too. Saw that on a couple of sights. But Michael E. Knight is not. One of the reporters or magazines interviewed him and he said he couldn’t do it at this time.

    I was hoping he would return too.

  • Golden Guy

    AMC and OLTL should debut pretty well on the internet, most soap fans except for their elderly fans have already adapted to catching up on the soaps on the internet. Y&R and DAYS does about 3-4 million extra viewers a day online if OLTL can get under half of that it’d be considered a success but in the long-run they need to be on television too so this web experiment will probably be predicated on how they perform online.

  • kagey1951

    Oprah missed her golden opportunity to make her network a hit by not taking these two soaps. What a shame. Maybe she will reconsider now that her network is such a flop.

  • karen

    Cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • scottishlass

    If they put it in regular hulu it will be free.

  • Nancy Johnson

    I watch shows on Hulu and Hulu plus on my TV via Roku. If you have a Smart TV or Roku (you need Internet access)you should be able to watch these shows on your TV. Not sure if Hulu is available via things like Wii, but I think it is.

    I agree
