Soap Operas Become Web-Exclusive

Iconographic TV soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live are headed to the pixel park; both were picked-up by online media distributor, Prospect Park. Most of the long-running soap operas have been canceled from network TV as their demographic has disappeared over the generations.

All My Children and One Life to Live are expected to continue on much the same way, with much of the same cast, as they ran on ABC, only now they will be seen exclusively on the Web. There was no mention as to how distribution would be handled; Prospect Park may sell viewing rights to Netflix, Hulu+, or similar online "network" outlets, or may create its own network website.
