The fact that this entity is owned by the Walt Disney Company is mentioned in the article and in the article's catigorization. Therefore, the see also section is unnecessary. Gentgeen 05:59, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I believe it would be in the best interest of this page to list the dates the shows aired on SoapNet instead of their original run, which is accessible by clicking on each show's link. Would anyone care to attempt this undertaking? 05:04, 8 May 2007 (UTC) I'm not sure which program this is from, but this controversy could apply to either the channel or to the program itself.

Disney Cinemagic[edit]

"Soapnet will begin airing CBS' canceled TeleNext Media soap, Guiding Light on October 4, 2010, and the channel will also air another TeleNext Media soap As the World Turns on January 3, 2011."

I don't see Guiding Light on Soapnet's schedule, nor any news of As The World Turns joining the lineup. 9Can anyone verify this info, before I delete it?Normstradamus (talk) 23:47, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Headquarters in Newark, New Jersey[edit]

Can anyone provide a physical address for SoapNet in Newark? I look on various search engines and websites and found nothing other then what was copied from Wikipedia that substantiates that SoapNet is based in New Jersey. The only clues that I found were an address in Burbank, California which is the building where ABC/Disney Cable Networks is based out of. If after a certain time no one response or provide required info I'll change it to read that the headquarters in Burbank and not Newark. 3littlemaidsfromschool (talk) 08:51, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

  • @3littlemaidsfromschool, I've changed this information to Burbank, California because your right there isn't anything to indicate that they are based in Newark, New Jersey. I've included a link (see here) from the Hoovers Business Directory which shows that Soapnet's headquarters is at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank.

What do you mean Soapnet is changing into Disney Junior?[edit]

Why would they change Soapnet into Disney Junior? Soapnet is a grown-ups channel, and Disney Junior is a baby channel. Who would ever replace a grown-ups channel with a baby one? Should've replaced it with Playhouse Disney... (talk) 18:23, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Playhouse Disney is Disney Junior. They changed the name well before they created the new channel. Azzychan (talk) 12:49, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Official closure date[edit]

We now have an official announcement from Disney of the date Disney Junior will replace Soapnet: March 23, 2012. [1] -- Gridlock Joe (talk) 22:42, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I doubt that's the closure date because Soapnet is advertising a marathon of "Make it or Break it" for Sunday on Soapnet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:24, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

It doesn't seem that Soapnet is closing anytime soon. I have BrightHouse Networks, and we have both Disney Junior and Soapnet. Azzychan (talk) 12:50, 14 February 2013 (UTC)


According to Wikipedia's Manual of Style trademark names have simple capitalization on Wikipedia despite the preferred styling of the tradmark owner. See MOS:TM. (So for example we use "Time (magazine)" rather than "TIME".) Accordingly I have changed SOAPnet to Soapnet in the article. —teb728 t c 20:47, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
