ABC/Disney, which owns both SoapNet and Disney Junior, decided to remove SoapNet and replace it with Disney Junior. The change will occur on Alliance Digital Cable TV on Friday, June 15.
With networks cancelling daytime dramas due to declining viewership, ABC/Disney didn’t see much purpose for a full-time network dedicated to airing soap opera reruns.
Plus, with the advent of the DVR, a high percentage of soap opera viewers now record episodes and stopped using SoapNet, which used to be a popular channel for those wanting to watch daytime dramas in the evenings or on weekends.
You can find Disney Junior in the Elite Choice package on channel 49 and in the High Definition package on channel 349.
If you don’t already subscribe to the Elite Choice or High Definition packages, you should subscribe today. Or better yet, get the best deal with the Ultimate Triple Play bundle. For more details, dial 611 from any Alliance phone or call 605-594-3411.
