    Days Of Our Lives Returns In Australia.

    Monday, February 24 2014

    DOOL in Australia.

    Updated: February 24.

    "Days of Our Lives" fans in Australia have something to be happy about. The series will be returning to the air waves of the southern continent. It was cut from the broadcasting schedule by the Nine network last April. Foxtel’s Arena channel has now picked up the series. Episodes will begin airing again on Tuesday April 15 at 12:50 PM AEST. This will mark the first time that the US and Australia will be airing the same episodes on the same day. Starting on April 1, the network will air 10 specially selected episodes to bring viewers up to speed on what has been happening in Salem over the past few months.

    After airing for 45 years on the channel Nine in Australia, the network has pulled the plug on "Days Of Our Lives." According to TV Tonight, the network decided to axe the show in Australia for commercial reasons in spite of the fact that it has consistently performed well in its timeslot. Sony will be looking for a new network to air the series in Australia.

    I have already registered my disgust to the network and am shocked, I am just a little older than the show and am certainly a long time fan, remembering Julies baby debacle in b/w a a child, a Bope fan, I am distressed. I have just become a Disability pensioner, and like a lot of the fans of the show, we CANNOT afford Pay TV. If only NBC would open their hearts to us and allow access to full episodes. Meanwhile I must contact TV SOAP, Australia's major Soap Mag to see what can be done. I am in tears. Some 49th Birthday present for me eh?

    We feel for you Christopher. We hope you can read our recaps and somehow find it on Hulu or something.

    This site might help the Australian fans of DOOL:

    It's a new site which lets you easily view the episodes from where Channel 9 left off, and it remembers where you were up to when you login.
