Days in Australia Update 6/12
Topic Started: Jun 12 2013, 06:30 PM (1,135 Views)


Streaming service Crackle picks up Days Of Our Lives for Australia

Online TV and film streaming site Crackle has acquired the rights to make the iconic soap opera Days of our Lives available in Australia.

Crackle launched in 2009 and streams TV and films from Sony Pictures’ library for free on a number on platforms, including connected TV, gaming consoles, mobiles, tablets and PCs.

Channel Nine axed the soap in April this year due to rising costs.

Ten episodes will be offered in the inaugural week, started next Monday June 17, with seven new episodes released each Monday. Each episode will be available for four weeks.

Crackle has mostly focussed on older films until now, with Days Of Our Lives being the first major acquisition for their television section. Previously Crackle has focussed mainly on cartoons and anime when it comes to anime.

Phil Lynch, senior vice president, digital networks and games for Sony Pictures Television, said: “We are very happy to be offering Days of our Lives fans an opportunity to keep up with the show in Australia.

Mark Young, senior vice president, distribution, Australia & New Zealand for Sony Pictures Television, said: “There has been an outpouring of support from fans across Australia, telling us how much Days of our Lives means to them. We are delighted to be partnering with Crackle to help viewers keep up with the daytime drama as we solidify long term plans.”

Bill Hayes' grandson, Dave Samuel, was one of the co-founders of Crackle. I didn't know Sony owned it now. I wish Sony would put up some classic Days episodes on Crackle.

As much as I regularly criticise DAYS, I really miss it from Australian free to air network TV.
