7 July 28th, 2011 SOAPnet to stay on the air longer into the New Year!

There is news to report today on the SOAPnet front. Soap Opera Digest is reporting that the 24/7 soap opera cable channel is not going off the airwaves in February, 2012 as originally announced and planned.

It appears that the channel will continue to broadcast for a little bit longer into the new year.  Days of our Lives will remain on the programming block.  DAYS executive producer said, “We’re fortunate that SOAPnet picked up the show.”  So what happens to The Young and the Restless and General Hospital? With both All My Children and One Life to Live gone by January, we presume they will stay, and some additional acquisition programming will join the line-up, unless they decide to infuriated soap fans and put on same day episodes of The Chew and The Revolution?

Whatever the case,  SOAPnet is phasing out to make room for the Disney Junior channel, as previously announced.
