    I want SOAP NET

    It's terrible to make it difficult, especially for the older viewers that are not computer literate! Just bring back SOAP NET!!

    That sucks. Why make it so difficult? So every time Obama decides to interrupt with his lies & BS, or some other news story that can't wait another 60 minutes cause the world might end before then, & God forbid, they can't possibly pre-empt that stupid twit Bethenny, I just have to miss whatever happens that day, because I'm unable to have access to any of those. Thanks ABC.

    Thanks, Disney. First you get rid of SoapNet and now you make it difficult for us to watch if there's an interruption. I guess you're trying to get rid of GH again, huh?

    ABC couldn't alienate the viewers more if it tried. Having dumped the overpriced satellite TV because them jerking me around by dropping stations and moving programs I liked to a higher paying tier, I am damned if I am going to go back to paying for a provider when my rabbit ears give me more watchable channels for free.

    Last night they had a 2-hour special of 'The Taste' a cooking/game show on Prime Time no less. As if we didn't have more than enough cooking shows that we have to have one thrust on us in Prime Time. I heard that one of the four judges, Nigella Lawson is getting $200,000 an episode. If they have that kind of money to throw around, they could have used it on the daytime dramas.

    I have been watching general hospital for the past 41 years and much to my surprise I will not be able to watch it anymore because the soapnet channel is gone for good..
    I understand why the channel is gone but the sametime it will make it very hard to watch the show.
    I do have a cable box which was conneceted to my TV set a few years ago but I also have a dvd/player which I connected to my TV years ago as well I did video tape the show until I had to get a cable box.The problem now is have not been able to reconnect my dvd/player so I can use it again i did plug it back in but nothing happend. So i was at least happy to be able to watch the show on soapnet but the channel is gone.I did however call my cable provider and the person with I spoke with was not able to help me .i asked some one else and the person could not help me either.SO do hope that some other chanel picks up soapnet so the the older viewers can watch in the evening.
