TeleNext Media, Inc. today announced that its two long-running soap operas Guiding Light and As The World Turns, plus the classic soap opera Another World, will be the first of the genre to make full episodes available for viewing on

Initially, viewers will be able to enjoy 18 full episodes of each show, with an additional three episodes going up on the site per week.
Guiding Light will debut on July 25, 2008, As The World Turns on July 28, and Another World on July 29.

“Our shows have always been media pioneers,” said Brian T. Cahill, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of TeleNext Media Inc., “We were the first to transition from radio to television and the first to podcast. We are proud to be first here as well, and happy to do it with such a great strategic partner as Hulu.”

Both Guiding Light and As The World Turns will debut on Hulu with episodes that originally aired on television on June 1, 2007.

Since Another World's removal from the SoapNet schedule, fans have been clamoring to see the remainder of the show's run. As per their wishes, Another World will debut on Hulu with the episode that originally aired on NBC on May 10, 1991 -- the last episode broadcast by SoapNet -- and continue from there!

Older episodes of Another World, as well as classics Search for Tomorrow, The Edge of Night and Texas are currently available on the AOL/PGP Classic Soaps Channel.

It was great that AOL Video site was showing Another World episodes but the webmaster has be soooo lazy that most of the videos will not play and "we", the fans, took time to make comments which were ignored over and over again. If AOL Video plan to cancel the show then just do so and take the show off the site.

Thank you so much for making the 1991 episodes available again to the devoted Soapnet viewers on

You are also to be commended for the AOL initiative with AW, Edge, Texas and SFT. I've so enjoyed seeing clips from Texas, which has remained my favorite after almost 30 years. We're now up to the segments when Texas gelled with cast and crew after initial growing pains.

The previous poster has pointed out the frustrations with AOL lately. The earliest posted episodes were extremely easy to access, but the site lately has been very user-unfriendly. Is there any way to revert to whatver technology you were using at the beginning?

When I checked recently, only the last episodes posted of each of the four shows were available. An additional problem was a "rewind" effect after each commercial when the previous segment would unravel at fast speed before the next portion of the episode would appear.

One additional wish list item. Would it be possible to repost all the episodes from the beginning so we can see all the scenes with the late and great veterans such as Beverlee McKinsey and Larry Haines? I so wanted to go back and watch the AW episode again where Mac learns that Mitch is the father of Rachel's baby. Best soap moment ever in my opinion!

Thanks again. Have you notified the musems of broadcasting in NYC and Chicago about your on-line episodes at AOL and Hulu?
