Disney goes on to mention decreased viewship coupled with timeshifting, made possible with DVRs, and online episodes has lessoned the need for this channel...just hope the soaps will beon VOD because my wife has to watch Soapnet from time-to-time because the networks like interrupting daytime programming for breaking news - and she hates watching online.
In Nicks Defense they have been using the name Nick Jr, since I was a kid It was what they called the morning block of there programming for the younger lads.. Ahh I miss those days.. Anyone remember Euerkas Castle? COME ON MAN thats good tv!
I do agree about the Disney thing. Playhouse Disney should be the name
No surprise here. The whole point of SoapNet was for people who liked to watch Soaps but couldn't do it when they were originally on. DVRs basically have that covered. Still, I knew a number of people who would just use a timed VCR and record daily. Amazing how devoted some people are to their "stories."
I haven't seen many of the soaps on VOD, but I'm sure this is being addressed. Offhand, I get the feeling one or two more soaps will be cancelled within a year...ratings are less than half of what they used to be.
