Let the countdown begin! “One Life To Live” and “All My Children” are coming back with all-new episodes this spring!
And, making it easy for viewers to watch, both soaps will premiere digitally on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
“I believe that both Hulu and iTunes have the vision, the reach and the technology to help us launch TOLN (The Online Network) in a significant way,” Prospect Park Chairman and CEO, Jeff Kwatinetz, said in a statement. “We think these platforms are part of history, helping us to transform distribution. Hulu’s reach, platform and advertising prowess are best in class, and iTunes provides an incredible way to buy TV shows that is second to none. Through both of these partners, we hope daytime drama fans are absolutely delighted to be able to watch their favorite programs in a broadcast-quality HD format wherever and whenever they want.”
