Just fresh on the heels of AMC/OLTL being saved....will you watch them online?

I don't know. I can't really watch AND do other stuff at the same time that way as I can now while watching TV. Plus it seems like a lot of people are jumping ship early, so who's even going to be left by the time they go off the air? And like someone said on FB, would characters like Gigi have been saved if they had known earlier that the show wasn't ending?

Plus, ABC must not have felt threatened by letting an online-only forum have the shows. It probably thinks they won't do well. Otherwise why wouldn't they have sold them to the other TV networks that wanted them?

I don't watch those particular soaps, but I'm not sure I could watch them online either.

I understand that. Even though I have a good internet connection some things are slow for me. DH had suggested maybe using a real player to download an episode. I don't

You're not the only one. I do remember 1/2 hour shows. I just wonder if it's even worth the trouble. I under your frustration about the stories not moving along. I think the writers do that to peak our interest so we'll keep watching!

Our DirecTv got shut off because we couldn't pay the bill so I've been watching most of them online. I really don't like it because when I had DTV I could record it, watch it later, have the subtitles on and do housework at the same time but when I watch them online, I pretty much have to sit here and just watch and not able to do anything else and the quality sucks of course compared to TV. We have antenna and watch them on TV if I can but if I have to go somewhere and I miss an episode I have to wait a day for it to be posted online to see it. But it's better than missing them all together! I have been RIVETED to OLTL lately because of the Todd/TD story. Can't wait until Friday to get the DNA test back! That is this Friday right??? LOL

I'm sorry about your losing Directv - I just hate that this is happening to you. I agree, watching online is the pits!! I'm not sure what I'll do. I just don't see myself sitting that long LOL

According to the spoilers, yes, I believe we will find out about the DNA results on Friday. Can't wait!!!
