    Congrats to The Bay! I think this is a good move for the show. I’d like to see Prime get the AMC and OLTL reboots as well.

    This is GREAT for soaps. It is much easier to watch streaming on television then on a PC. I would actually watch it on this platform. I hope more can follow suit.


  9. Donna M says:

    looking for a new soap, but won’t pay for Amazon to watch it without big incentive.
    For me, that means only Jack wagner on. lol..sorry to be picky.

    I’m so excited to watch The Bay on Amazon Prime this summer! Lilly Melghar is an amazing actress! She dives so deeply into the characters she plays, you truly feel the emotion from her extraordinary talent. She really pulls from deep within. I just love her!!!
