Many fans fear that they will never get to see any new shows that center around the lovely Miss Erica Kane or the other great actors who make their home in Pine Valley again. They also fear that soon they will be losing their friends in Llandview. Of course, these friends are the ones that they have been watching for countless years on “All My Children” and “One Life To Live.” These fans are also the fans they may have internet restrictions that hinders them from watching via the new website that has been recently named The Online Network. Yet, these fans may have more hope that their wishes will be soon be answered and their friends will have a new cable home.
Recently, Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz, was featured in an article for the New York Times. He had a lot to say in this article about his upcoming plans for Prospect Park and these great soaps that this company recently acquired.
The plans centered on three phases. Phase one would place the soaps on Prospect Park’s new website: The Online Network. This would allow fans to enjoy them through the comfort of streaming video. Phase two would allow fans to enjoy them through on demand systems. Finally, a few weeks later in phase three the plan is to air the soaps on a cable station.
What is the catch? There is really no catch. Yet, Prospect Park will need sponsors and investors to help get all these plans in motion. Have no fear; according to the article they have some investors and sponsors, all ready line up for the deal. They also have many more interested investors.
Of course, this isn’t a done deal. Yet, it is an encouraging one. It also shows that those without the means of streaming video are not completely left out in the cold, yet. There is still hope.
Note: When it comes to marketing, hopefully, Prospect Park will realize just how easy it can be to market some of their sponsor’s products. Hopefully, they will think about some of early ways that products were marketed and go back to those ways. It can be as easy as allowing the characters to use the products in the scenes. It can be as easy as allowing the characters to wear the products and have other characters commit on them. It can be easy and it also can be fun for the viewers to watch. For instance, if Prospect Park could get a cookie sponsor maybe they could actually write a scene in where Erica Kane eats. Just think of the great fan response for that scene.
