Here’s some good news for those missing Oakdale: Starting tomorrow, February 28, SoapClassics will be streaming episodes of AS THE WORLD TURNS! Although the episodes are primarily meant for fans in the Netherlands and South Africa — where the show recently went off the air — but fans around the world can watch via the company’s International streaming site. Episodes available for viewing are from 2005 (where the Netherlands left off) and 2007 (where South Africa left off). “Different countries are in different points in the story,” says president Mark Yates. “Although ATWT has concluded in the US, it still has three years to go in South Africa. One of the great things about streaming the show on the Internet is that people can watch the show whenever it’s convenient. We’ll be releasing five new episodes every Monday, and fans will be able to watch the episodes anytime, at their own pace, all week.”
SoapClassics, which holds the distribution rights to more than 12,000 episodes of ATWT, GUIDING LIGHT, THE EDGE OF NIGHT, SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, ANOTHER WORLD and TEXAS, plans to offer a larger selection for streaming in the future, as well as additional boxed sets of DVDs.
