On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman who is a US contributing feature correspondent for TV SOAP Australia ( covering the US soaps that air down under) had received countless emails from fans in Australia inquiring as to if he knew when GH would finally air in Australia? Well, there is great news! The W Channel who also saved The Young and the Restless from Aussie viewer extinction is bringing General Hospital to their network starting on July 5th.
The great news also is unlike Y&R and DAYS that air several months behind there. Now, Australian soap fans will get the episodes 10 weeks after they premiere in the States! This is also good news for the GH family itself, as international distribution is one key element of keeping soaps alive.
