With less than 12 hours until the premieres of The Online Network’s All My Children and One Life to Live, there may be fans who still have some questions regarding how to watch, where and who’ll be on the shows. So, TVSource Magazine staff compiled a handy-dandy guide featuring answers to some of your questions!

Where can I watch All My Children and One Life to Live?

That depends on where and how you want to watch it. Here are four ways to watch:

  • If you want to watch AMC and OLTL on your computer, you can watch for free at Hulu.com (All My Children Hulu Page | One Life to Live Hulu Page). Episodes from the last 10 days will be available.
  • If you decide to subscribe to Hulu Plus for $7.99 a month, you will be able to watch on the go from your smartphone or tablet. In addition, you can watch from your game systems – Xbox 360, PS3, Wii as well as entertainment systems Apple TV, Roku and some Hulu enabled DVD players.
  • iTunes will also have episodes available for 99 cents. You can also buy a monthly pass for $10. All My Children iTunes Page | One Life to Live iTunes Page
  • If you live in Canada and get FX Canada, you can watch weekdays beginning Monday, April 29 at 12:00PM for All My Children and 12:30PM for One Life to Live.

So, let’s recap. You can watch for FREE on Hulu; spend $7.99 for Hulu Plus to watch on the go (and on gaming/entertainment systems); buy from iTunes for 99 cents (or $10 a month); watch on FX Canada (if you live in Canada)

But why do I have to pay?

Will TVSource Magazine cover All My Children and One Life to Live?
