    one life to live will be back on april 29 2013. cannot wait i am so excited in watching viki dorian clint david nora and bo. i live in vancouver bc canada. someone told me i cannot watch one life to live in canada. we don’t have hulu. i heard that some people will put one life to live episodes on youtube. hopefully this is true. when one life to live was on abc. i watched the daily episodes on youtube. i watch general hospital episodes on youtube. so much better. no commercial at all. i wish one life to live great success on prospect park. i really think it will be a big hit. hopefully im right. all my children i loved on abc. buy all my children looks like a teen soap to me. susan lucci needs to come back and save all my children. i know she is very busy with other projects. i wish all my children great success as well. but i think in my opinion it will not last at all.

    You can watch from Canada..
    All you need is a USA IP ..
    Use a proxy server and pic a USA server.. Then you can get into Hulu..
    there are apps for proxies or google ”proxies” ..

    Had to reply to you here about what i said’ i cant get hulu and i cant afford it’. I ALREADY knew hulu is FREE! The latter part of my comment’ i cant afford it’ meant i cant afford to pay for OLTL via huluplus ect.(at this time) I reread what i wrote so i see i shouldve made it more clearer, and i understand how it confused you! but thanks for the reply anyway…

    Debbi replied

    Yeah? and for how long before they shut you down? PP screwed Canadians by shutting us out of our soaps as much as ABC did. There are a great many people here who’ve been watching for 30 years too! And what about seniors who don’t have access to a compute much less muck around with proxy server stuff before it too gets shut down.

    They’re making it only available in the US for the copyright and geo-restriction nonsense just like with eBooks. It will only be available in the US and too bad for everyone else whether you’ve been a loyal viewer for 30+ years or not. Hiding or masking you ISP will only last for so long.

    As much as I love the soaps – I hope the project fails for their lack of care and concern for all their soap fans! And BOO on them for taking John away from Sam. I was thrilled t see their pairing back from Port Charles days. PP you SUCK!

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    DO NOT USE PROXIES.
    That’s how people and scammers hack into your system.
    IP Proxies are never a secure thing to use.

    Jim replied

    With all due respect, what you’re asking people to do when they put episodes on youtube is illegal and it’s called piracy. If we want online soaps to survive and thrive, we cannot let these episodes show up on youtube. These soaps will derive their livelihood from advertising revenue and I for one am tired of people stealing the work of others and “innocently” posting the epoisdes. It’s disrespectful to the actors, disrespectful to the company that’s bringing them back and ultimately disrespectful to the online community.

    so how afe the viewers from canada supposed to watch? its not fair that only u.s. people get to watch. i’m not going to pay to download from itunes esp when i don’t know how the shows are gonna be presented

    Jennifer replied

    My Canadian friends are all setup with Hulu. They used an app called Spotflux to access Hulu. Install spotflux & you are good to go.

    Richelle replied

    I live in the US and Hula doesn’t support the platform on my smartphone but will for I phones and I have to pay itunes to watch my favorite soap OLTL… So, if I live in the USA and I have to pay… What makes you so special? Jim is right as well… You are asking people to break the law. Do you really feel that is right? I myself don’t and I would not count on seeing it on utube… It would be outright immoral!!! I’m sure as time goes by and the shows progress we will have move viewing options so just hang tight and trust that our Soaps that they will expand as they get a feel for how many viewers are tuning in! I’m sure it will all be tesolved! My opinion. : )

    TRUE ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    No PP Screwed us!!! Not ABC this time. The fan club president sent out an email with a statement from press that ABC did everything they could to share the characters and PP would not budge. ABC still screwed us but in think this one is on PP

    no, PP was willing to share. ABC decided to stop trying to work something out, this is on them.

    Todd may still come bak Kristen has to give up the character she grew up playing because this stupid company is made up of arrogant jerks and wont let her go. I think its great she refuses to go on the new OLTL too

    I wanted to replicate the network viewing experience as much as possible, so I have Hulu Plus and made sure I could access it from both my living room and bedroom TVs. One was already Internet-ready, and for the other I added an Internet streaming player. Now I’m impatiently waiting for solid AMC scoopage, hoping PP also scores a cable deal so I’ll be able to record and archive AMC scenes I want to keep, as I’d done in the past!

    I have never used Hulu before, first of all, is it free? Secondly, will I be able to watch AMC and OLTL at ANY time of the day that I choose? What if I miss say, Monday’s show, will it still be on Hulu later in the week? Thank you

    Reply

    Torrey replied

    I have HULU Plus and to answer your question….Yes, you can watch the episodes any time of the day that you choose, and yes the episodes are available later in the week. Now, I’m not for sure how long Hulu will archive episodes before they remove them from the available listing of shows to watch…I know that the Network shows that I watch on Hulu right now, keep the entire season archived, so I can watch them any time I want…but I know that soaps have ongoing episodes, so I’m not for sure how long they will be available. I love Hulu though. You can watch as many times as you want and any time that you want.

    su0000 replied

    I have used HuLu Plus for a very long time..

    The week, Monday through Friday, and only that one week of the soaps is held..
    You can watch daily or the week, Monday through Sunday, only.
    Then the next week will be held to view for that week
    again; that is true for both the FREE and PAY Hulu..

    Other TV shows do hold entire seasons, however, not the soaps.

    The soaps are on everyday and it would storage kill HuLu to archive more than a week..

    Linj replied

    Yes, Rosie!! Hulu is free!! From your computer, go to hulu.com/allmychildren!! Someone said upper right corner is the place to click to sign up!! There is a Hulu Plus that costs $7.99 a month but this is for your mobile devices or your tv if you stream via wifi and roku (or some such device) which allows wireless access to your tv!! I have this set up because I choose to watch on my tv so that I can still play on my computer while I’m watching!! LOL, enjoy!! It really isn’t as complicated as it sounds!!

    Regular hulu on your computer is free. It is only Hulu Plus that has a fee.

    su0000 replied

    LOL ..
    People have been told a million times that;

    HuLu by PC is FREE
    lets call it Regular HuLu ) it needs no subscriptions it is free, but can only be watch on your PC ..

    HuLu Plus is 7.99 a month and is available on ”all” other intent devices/not just on your computer ..

    Both.. Hulu and HuLu Plus hold the week of the soaps (Mon-Fri)
    You have from Monday to Sunday to what them..

    After that Sunday, the next week will be held for that week..

    Hope that helps ..

    jim replied

    Thanks 4 the reply but i meant two different things when i said’ I cant get hulu, and i cant afford to pay for it’(i didnt mean hulu which i knew was free; it was meant to mean i cant afford OLTL the other ways such as huluplus ect.) but after reading my comment i see how that could confuse someone so thats my error…

    susan M. replied

    To confirm what suOOOO has already said about Hulu (free). I e-mailed Hulu on
    3/21 about this and this is their reply:Thanks for writing in. The good news is
    that One Life To Live will be available for both Hulu & Hulu plus. That means
    that you’ll be able to view the show on your computer WITHOUT subsrcription to
    hulu plus. I hope this helps. Happy viewing! Thanks Dom T. Hulu Support.

    TRW replied

    Since OLTL and AMC are only half hour and are online exclusives, I think Hulu may leave more than just one week access of past shows. Storage space is not the issue, it’s how long the owners of the content want it available on Hulu.

    ethel replied

    i still have soap net too but don’t think amc & oltl will be on soapnet – remember soapnet is owned by abc………………

    Reply

    jim replied

    A.B.C. DUMB… makes me wonder why abc reruns amc&oltl…its kinda like their giving pp free publicicity and they dont even know it or they are hoping pp revivals will give them some much needed publiclicity so theyll continue to take advantage of the situation and air the reruns.(maybe abc has regrets: 2 late!) Now that pp owns the show maybe they should remove the reruns and air them theirselves unless they think soapnet airing the reruns will generate more ratings for them? In any case thanks 4 the reply

    Thank you, Ethel!!! Finally, someone gets that!!!

    can they not get it from itunes?

    I’m in the US but still trying to figure out I’ll watch (for free) I thought I’d use Hulu.com (free version) with some handheld device (which I’d have to buy), but read above that that won’t work – only desktop computer (I have a couple of those) with hi-speed internet (which I don’t have.

    arg!

    sean replied

    thats such a waste to find a proxy why would i go thru all that for one show that producers want to do well and should make available to other countries without the hassle i use to watch on ABC on my tv before a major network. PP should have thout ahead not done online junk

  9. KateK says:

    With JWOW being added to the cast as a recurring character the new OLTL will be nothing like the OLTL fans loved & wanted to come back. The new cast is targeting a younger audience. OLTL is going to be an over sexed version of what it once was. I wish it never would have come back, & John, Star, & Todd could have at least been left alone & could have remained on GH. I won’t be watching either show, Ill stick with GH.

    JesusIsDead replied

    Over sexed? It hasn’t even sired yet, you prude. How do you know? And who cares? It’s online. If you see ass and a nipple or two, trust me–YOU WON’T BURST INTO FLAME. stick with GH then!

    Brian replied

    If attracting a younger tech-savvy audience it can only help ournumbers to continue to keep the shows alive. Look, she’s not taking over the role of Viki or Dorian; she’s a recurring character. And remember the flap that one Kardashian sister created? Everyone was upset.
    Tough it out. We have One Life to Live back!

    su0000 replied

    Until OLTL airs and has been watched for awhile to actually see what it will offer us, you know nothing, nothing at all as what it will be or not be..
    perhaps if you watch it before you judge it, that would be good :)

    Well I will be watching OLTL… OLTL has a little bit of everything to target the young
    & for us that have been watching OLTL for a long time. I don’t agree that it will be
    over sexed ..It never seemed that way to me…I am happy OLTL is back! You will
    be missing something special! Such as Viki,Clint,Dorian,Blair,Natalie,Nora,Bo Etc…. There had to be some new faces. Who knows fans might like the new additions. There are a lot of OLTL fans that will be watching! Don’t miss out !

    Also if you happen to have an AppleTV device, it comes with Hulu Plus installed so you can access your account and watch the stories (plus tons more shows) as if they really were on television if you need to get away from the computer.

    To the person that said they will not watch AMC because it looks like a teenager show. Yes, they wan t to get a younger audience but
    i do not think it is a teen show. Anchored by Jill Larsen, Julia Barr, Cady McClain, VIncent Irrizarry and others. The younger audience is what is bringing people to the web, so they need some of that to grab them. I also do not like watching shows on my computer, but I do it now and it is no big deal. Yes, I would prefer on my tv, and if the show grabs me then I will get a Roku device but until then, things will left to be determined.

    Now; I have to “Subscribe” to Hulu PLus if I want to watch on TV …. might have to give u[p Netflix … Wish it was back on the Soap Channel/Network whatever it is called , again.

    I’m glad the confusion is cleared up about Hulu. As of now, I’ll be watching the shows for free on the regular Hulu. When I can afford it I’ll buy one of the Roku boxes so I can upgrade to Hulu Plus and watch it on my TV.

    Long live Llanview and Pine Valley!

    I have heard that HuluPlus & Hulu will only let your the most recent 4 shows. Is this true?

    Will you be able to purchase a season’s pass on iTunes? If you purchase through iTunes, will you own it forever? Will it be in HD? Most apps I stream from iPad to iTV aren’t HD. Maybe if I watch directly from iTV instead of AirPlay it will be HD? Lots of questions.

    The only time I will be able to watch will be right before I go to bed….in bed on my ipad. So, it won’t be free to me? I thought hulu plus was the only format I was going to have to pay for but now iTunes is fee-based as well? A bit disappointed since I won’t get my daily viewing. Or, am I wrong on what device will have the free service?

    Debbi, Hulu.com on your regular computer is free! Mobile devices like phone, TV, tablets, etc have to have huluPlus.com which costs $7.99/mon!!! iTunes is a per episode cost!!!

    I am having problems viewing All My Children on Hulu. Both episodes 2 and 4 only played half way through and then a black screen popped up following the second set of ads. The show would not continue from where it left off in either episode. Anyone else having issues? Epsode 3 played the best. It allowed a choice of viewing one prolonged ad at the start of the episode and no further interruption. Why can’t all the episodes have that option?

    Canadian viewers – by now you may have heard. The cable channel FX Canada is airing AMC and OLTL weekdays. So, if your cable system has this channel you can tape it/pvr it just like any other t.v. show. I have never watched OLTL but was a bit familiar with some characters. Am enjoying thus far. Also, on Sat and Sunday, FX Canada replays the entire weeks episodes in a block. For more info do a google search for FX Canada.
