I never knew that Days was back on the air in NZ after being cancelled. That's good to hear. Sucks for the Aussies, though. Even if Days is airing something I'm not particularly fond of, it was always comforting to know it was there in case I wanted to tune back in again.

This almost makes me think about how many international/non-US viewers the soap has. I'm not even sure I know where all DAYS (or any of the other soaps, for that matter) still air. I know Canada gets everything, but I can't remember if the UK still does or not. And since I started watching all of the UK soaps thanks to the internet (since none of the air here except for Coronation Street now on Hulu/Hulu+ 2-3 weeks behind UK time), I wonder if anyone else watches US soaps strictly through the internet or even discovered the US soaps via the internet because they don't air in their country. Or watch the soaps at US speed via online even though the shows air in their country, but at a delayed pace.
Just doing a quick search.
Days airs in:
South Africa (where it remains very popular 1.5 million viewers a week)
Canada (on both French and English television)
New Zealand (Just started again last month after being cancelled in 2010)
United Arab Emirates
South Africa is airing episodes from 2010. French Canada is about to enter 2003. New Zealand is currently 6 months behind.
It hasn't aired in the UK since 2010. But your right with the internet people could probably watch Days on the moon.
I am sure it will pop up somewhere again in Australia just like NZ.
