    Hope GH and Days will make it there to since ABC is shutting down Soapnet. Its sad since a lot of people watch soapnet and some even watch reruns of the soaps on it.

  • KansasGuest

    GH doesn’t need a different channel like TVGN to replay its new episodes. Right now, viewers can see it on cable with ABC’s On Demand listings, or watch it online with Hulu & abc.com. All are free. I don’t know if Y&R, B&B or DAYS are on Hulu or On Demand.

  • Mike

    Alot of people are with GH on Hulu and ABC.com the same way they were with AMC and OLTL — they don’t want to watch it on the computer.

    And not everyone gets on demand either. If you have satellite you have to have a special hookup to access On Demand.

    So it would help GH big time to have a cable outlet too.

    Happy for their fans. My ATT UVerse doesn’t carry TVGN. I’m so gonna miss SoapNet when it’s gone. I personally don’t mind watching online, but at least I can DVR my stories.

  • Erik

    TVGN is owned by CBS which is why Y&R/B&B are on there…DAYS/GH will probably never air on TVGN.

  • ShawninDayton

    Days might because they’re produced by the same people that produces y&r, gh on the other hand i don’t see that happening
