Soap fans across the world were served a sliver of hope earlier this month when it was announced that two long-standing daytime favorites that are facing the ax come the fall will find new life online. However, it seems that one show could still be at risk due to contract negotiations.

Here's the story.

All My Children is set to air its last televised episode on September 23rd on ABC. It was anticipated that the show would then hit the web just a few days later. However, while taking a show from TV to the Internet sounds simple enough, there are still many factors to consider before the switch, namely monetary ones. The formation of new budgets and contract negotiations with production unions and guilds have to happen first, thus the return to Pine Valley may be postponed until early 2012.

It's bummer, but it's better than losing it all together!

Are U prepared for the end and a new beginning?

    moving AMC & OLTL online just delays the inevitable they'll probably be online 6 months to a year and then i'm sure they'll just be cancelled again, just throw in the towel and accept that the shows should end when they leave ABC

    One life to live is the best soap right now. I am glad they are moving to the internet the only problem is that their demographics for the most part are a bit technologically challenged. I know people that watch these shows but dont know a thing about online streaming or how to access it. These shows are already on ABC.com and I would assume that few people watch them there. If they are not easily accessible like on tv I am not so sure people will follow. A house maid that watches when she is cleaning a house is not going to be turning on a computer before the vacuum the floor.

    As long as One Life To Live has a smooth transition, I dont care! :-) Pine Valley has run its course. Just let some of the characters move to Llanview, consolidate the two, and get going……
