DID “ALL MY CHILDREN” REALLY COME BACK?

Fans were broken-hearted in September 2011 when ABC Daytime Television cancelled the show’s then 41-year run on the ABC network.  It was to the amazement and delight of the cast, crew, and fans when the show was then “revived” in the Spring of 2013. Prospect Park Productions had secured licensing rights to produce the show online as a web series via half-hour episodes on Hulu, Hulu Plus, & iTunes.  Canadian viewers were also included in the mix, being offered episode purchase options via iTunes Canada.

The show premiered on all platforms on MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2013.  The online episodes for “All My Children” were initially posted for viewing at 5:00 am (ET) and 2:00 am (PT), Monday and Wednesdays, with a joint AMC/OLTL live recap episode each Friday.  On July 1, 2013, The Online Network (TOLN) modified the airing schedule by posting both AMC episodes simultaneously on Monday mornings.

If AMC came back, why was there a “season finale” and what is the show’s current status?  Click here to view TOLN’s last press release, dated August 1, 2013, which informed fans about its plans to present “All My Children” by seasons, with the Season 1 finale airing on Monday, September 2, 2013. 

Although Prospect Park relayed the airdate of Season 2 would be announced by the end of 2013, various third-party press reportings (Los Angeles Times; TV Guide Online) revealed that Prospect Park halted production of “All My Children” for an indefinite time period.  It should be pointed out, however, that Prospect Park itself has NOT issued an official, formal statement confirming the cancellation of the show, or its intent (either way) to continue or stop future production efforts. To receive status updates from TOLN directly, you may visit their website at www.toln.com and click on the “Newsletter Signup” button.  We will also inform you if or when we hear of any official developments.

Provided below are tutorials on how to view “All My Children” — however, it should be noted the details have changed since the Season 1 finale.  After Prospect Park halted production, they made ALL episodes viewable (via restriction free embeds) on their website (www.toln.com) and Hulu.com (paid subscription viewing restriction on mobile devices were lifted).  Separate and apart from TOLN & Hulu, we here at Vincent-Irizarry.com have provided show recaps & clips for those episodes specifically featuring Vincent on our “Show Recaps” page.

We hope the above update provides some clarification and answers to your questions.  We will advise you if we receive more confirmed information.

HULU (REGULAR) – ABSOLUTELY FREE

 Hulu.com

Hulu is a free service that provides TV shows and movies for viewing on your desktop or laptop computer.  Hulu has a more limited library than Hulu Plus, showing only the most recent episodes of a TV series and fewer movies. The videos on Hulu stream in standard definition.

Best part of Hulu is you don’t need to create an account to view any videos.  You can go directly to the Hulu “All My Children” page and just click the play button on any clip. To search for other TV shows click here. To search for movies on Hulu click here. One reason you might want to create a registered account (still at the free level) would be to customize your settings & to add videos to your queue.

To watch Hulu videos on your computer just go to their site using the links above and start browsing!  However, if videos do not play on your computer, make sure your computer has the following installed:

- Adobe Flash Player 10.1.53.64 or above
- Internet Explorer 7.0 or above, Firefox 2.0 or above, Safari 3.0 or above, or Chrome
- Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or above, Macintosh OS X 10.4 or above, or Linux
- JavaScript and Cookies enabled

HULU PLUS – (PAID SUBSCRIPTION)

 Hulu Plus

Hulu Plus is a paid video subscription service which costs $7.99 per month.  At this time, Hulu Plus is available only in the U.S. and Japan.  You can find out more about watching in Japan at the Hulu Japan website.

Why might someone want to pay for a Hulu Plus subscription?  The primary answer is convenience.  Instead of sitting in front of your computer, Hulu Plus enables you to stream shows to internet-enabled TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles (Wii, XBox 360, or PlayStation), media set-top boxes (Roku, Tivo, Apple TV, Netgear), mobile phones, tablets, and more.   If you think you’d want to watch the AMC episodes using these devices, this option could work for you.  Click here to view a complete list of Hulu Plus enabled devices.  This link has a wealth of information on each device, including great video clips featuring helpful tutorials & tips.

Hulu Plus offers a much larger viewing library in comparison to its free-level service. Click here to see which of your favorite shows are on Hulu Plus. Hulu Plus also streams its videos in HD resolution (if the show was shot & produced in HD format). The regular free Hulu service streams only in standard definition.

Important thing to remember
If you click on ANY link to a Hulu video using your smartphone or tablet, you will be directed to sign up for a paid Hulu Plus subscription. These videos are free to watch on your desktop computer, but NOT on your mobile devices. This seems to be where folks get confused as to whether Hulu is free or not. Rule of thumb – Hulu is free from your computer. But, if you want to watch Hulu using your smartphone, tablet, or smart TV, you will need to upgrade to the paid Hulu Plus subscription level.

 

If you’ve decided Hulu Plus is the way to go, here are tips to get started:

1.  Go to the Hulu Plus website by clicking here. Click on the “Try 1 Week Free” button.
2.  If you already have a regular Hulu account, click on the “Log In” link in the top right corner.
3.  If you don’t have a Hulu account, either sign in with your Facebook login or fill out the form.
4.  Fill out your credit card or Paypal information.  You will only be charged after your 1-week free trial period.
5.  The next screen will assist you with setting up & activating the mobile devices you wish to connect.
6.  To set up the Hulu Plus connection with your internet-ready TV or a set-top media box like Roku, follow the directions.

The set-up page gives you an option to have the Hulu Plus mobile app download links e-mailed to you, so you can more easily access & download the apps from your mobile phone or tablet.  For your convenience, I’ve also pasted the links below:

- iPhone or iPad
- Android phone or tablet
- Amazon Kindle
- Microsoft Surface tablet

 

After setting up your mobile devices, you can also go to your desktop computer to optimize your viewing experience:

1.  Go to the ‘Favorites‘ page to set up a queue of all your favorite shows.
2.  Type “All My Children” in the search bar then click on the “Add to Favorites” button.  You can add other shows too!
3.  Go to your ‘Account‘ page to customize your profile and viewing preferences.
4.  To add videos, hover over any video thumbnail and click on “Add to Queue” or subscribe to your favorite shows.
5.  Last but not least, to view answers to every conceivable FAQ related to Hulu Plus click here.

 

 

ITUNES – (PAY PER EPISODE)

iTunes

If you are a fan of Apple mobile devices or love archiving your videos in your iTunes library on your computer, you may feel that purchasing each episode (or a season pass) is worth it.  A major benefit of episode purchase is that you can download & save episodes to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod and watch even if you’re in an area without an internet connection. The pricing structure for AMC episodes on iTunes will be 99 cents per episode and $9.99 for a 20-episode pass.

The official “All My Children” iTunes page (United States) is available here.  The iTunes page for Canadian viewers is available here.  To clarify, you cannot view any clips from those links.  When you arrive to the iTunes store page, next to each downloadable episode, you will see a “Download” or “View in iTunes” button.  When you click on any of these links, the website will attempt to connect with your iTunes software application.  If you do not yet have iTunes installed on your computer, follow the steps below.

 

To purchase episodes via iTunes, here’s what you need to do:

1.  Download & install the iTunes software which is free, available for both Mac and PC desktops.
2.  Open your iTunes application using your desktop shortcut.
3.  In the left-column click on the “iTunes Store” link under the “STORE” category.
4.  Type “All My Children” in the white search bar at the top of the screen.
5.  Click on the “All My Children” photo icon that appears under the “TV Seasons” category at the top of the page.
6.  You’ll arrive at the “All My Children” store page.  Currently, there are 3 free preview clips for download!

WHO IS DR. DAVID HAYWARD?

 

Other than being too sexy for his own good, who is this good doctor that we all love to hate?  (Although many of us just “love to love” him!)  Dr. David Hayward, a brilliant world-renowned cardiologist, swept into Pine Valley in 1997.  Born to Vanessa Bennett & Charles Hayward — David carried emotional scars from childhood as a result of witnessing his father commit suicide due to Vanessa’s emotional abuse. While claiming to have the best of intentions to fervently protect and desperately pursue those he loves, David has gained a notoriety for wreaking havoc with everyone’s lives, leaving behind a trail of broken hearts. Conversely, much to everyone’s chagrin, Dr. Hayward has also saved many lives, being partial to experimenting with untested and controversial medical techniques.  As thanks for his efforts, ironically, David is likely the most tied up & punched character on the AMC canvas!  Here are some scenes of David from “All My Children” from previous years.

Created by Agnes Nixon, “All My Children” debuted on January 5, 1970, until its last airdate on September 23, 2011.  As a result of the voices of the fans, alongside the dedicated persistence and vision of Prospect Park, we are now able to anticipate and enjoy its revival.

Whether vintage or new — the heart of Agnes Nixon’s storytelling promises to live on. We look forward to watching the trials, tribulations, joys, and sorrows of the good citizens of Pine Valley.

“The Great and the Least; The Rich and the Poor; The Weak and the Strong; In Sickness and in Health; In Joy and in Sorrow, in tragedy and triumph, you are All My Children…”

Hulu 101 – Made Super Easy

 

I cried laughing watching this, so I somehow had to include this wonderful video clip by Cady McClain as part of this page!  At the heart of it all, it’s really this simple. As “Suzy Homemaker” says… “Don’t stress yourself…”

 


 

It’s hard to break free of the notion that seeing the show by network television is somehow “better” — but having shows stream to virtually any device on YOUR personal timetable will prove to be convenient, preferable, and liberating. Technology is fast blurring the lines of what we’ve traditionally become accustomed to.
 
I recently watched all 3 seasons of the PBS show, Downton Abbey, via my online AMAZON PRIME account as it streamed to my TELEVISION via my Roku media box. Since I bought a season pass, I was able to watch ALL of Season 3 in one sitting! The rest of the viewers who were still watching it via the PBS channel had to wait week-by-week for each episode. I also enjoyed watching it in HD, which was not available on PBS. :)

Hulu Plus – Why Are There Ads?

 

I’m paying for my Hulu Plus subscription, why do I still have to watch ads?  In order to keep the subscription price at $7.99 (which is much lower than most similar subscription services), Hulu Plus runs limited advertisements during some of the shows.  There are a few shows (educational children’s programming, PBS series, etc.) that may run ad-free.

The number of ads via Hulu Plus is a lot less than watching on-air television.  While watching Hulu Plus shows on a desktop computer, viewers are given a choice to watch different ads.  You can also tailor the ads to your preferences in your Profile Settings.

Hulu Plus – Why Isn’t It Available in Canada?

 

Due to the complexity of international digital rights laws, Hulu and Hulu Plus are not available outside the United States and Japan.  To read a concise and informative article that explains why in layman’s terms, click on this link: Why Canadians Can’t Watch TV Shows on Hulu.

There are various links circulating on the internet which explain available methods to circumvent this viewing restriction.  Since Hulu does not have the legal right to broadcast its shows outside the U.S. and Japan, using other means to circumvent the Hulu restrictions are not legal.

Although previously announced that FX Canada would be the exclusive Canadian television broadcast home of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” — that has now changed due to the reduced airing schedule recently implemented by TOLN/Prospect Park. FX Canada’s parent company, Rogers Media, released a statement advising that FX Canada will no longer be airing both shows as of May 20, 2013. Instead, Canadian viewers will be able to see both shows by purchasing episodes on iTunes Canada.

 

What About My Other Favorite Actors?

 

If you’re lamenting, “My favorite AMC actor isn’t on the show!” and wondering why, we’ve collected links to a few posts and statements issued by the actors themselves. Hopefully with a little faith & patience, things will work out for more actors to join the show!

Who is Prospect Park?

 

Prospect Park is a media and production company founded in 2009 by entertainment industry veterans Jeffrey Kwatinetz and former Disney Studios head Rich Frank. Along with successful film and music divisions, the company’s television group has numerous shows in development and breakout network hits, including “Royal Pains” and “Wilfred.”

On July 7, 2011, ABC sold the licensing rights of All My Children to third-party production company, Prospect Park,with the show set to continue on the internet as a series of webisodes. The show taped its final scenes for ABC on August 30, 2011, and its last episode on the network aired on September 23, 2011 with a cliffhanger. Prospect Park had suspended its plan to revive the series in November 2011 due to lack of funding and unsuccessful negotiation with the union organizations representing the actors and crews. On January 7, 2013, Prospect Park officially brought back its project to restore All My Children as a web series. The relaunched series will premiere on Monday, April 29, 2013.

Prospect Park stated, “We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible. We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love. These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility HULU and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime,” said Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, Prospect Park’s Partners. The response and camaraderie of our cast and crew has been inspiring as we have all banded together to succeed in our mission; unencumbered by the creative constraints of traditional broadcast television, to deliver storylines, style and characters that are stronger, with more dimension than ever. Now with our launch date set in stone, we are ready to lead this historic return. To the fans we proclaim, your support counts now more than ever.”

Why isn’t “All My Children” on ABC Television or SOAPNet?

 

On April 14, 2011, ABC Daytime announced that All My Children would be canceled after 41 years on the air.  On July 7, 2011, ABC sold the licensing rights of All My Children to third-party production company, Prospect Park, with the show set to continue on the internet as a series of webisodes.  The show taped its final scenes for ABC on August 30, 2011, and its last episode on the ABC Daytime network aired on September 23, 2011 with a cliffhanger.

All My Children will not be picked up by SOAPNet, as it is a channel owned and operated by the Disney-ABC Television Group, who is the entity that cancelled All My Children in 2011.

SOAPnet is an American cable television channel that broadcasts current and past soap operas and prime time dramas. The channel launched on January 20, 2000, and is owned by Disney-ABC Television Group, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. SOAPnet was discontinued on some cable and satellite providers beginning on March 22, 2012, with Disney Junior replacing it in its channel space. SOAPnet continues, however, for providers who have not yet made carriage agreements for Disney Junior (e.g. Dish Network) and for those providers who have kept Soapnet in their lineup and have taken on Disney Junior as an additional channel (e.g. DirecTV, etc). It is unclear when or if SOAPnet will entirely cease operations on all cable and satellite providers.
