Can I Watch My Soaps On My iPad?

I would love to have TV on my iPad so when I am away from home I won’t miss my soap opera.

While tablets aren’t yet to the point where you can easily receive live broadcast signals on them.  Sometimes sports events and news events are livestreamed on the Internet and can be viewed on your tablet. But network programming like a soap opera generally isn’t.

But that doesn’t mean you still can’t catch up on your soaps. Here’s how.

If you’re looking to check out the Young & The Restless or Bold & The Beautiful, you can download the  free CBS mobile app from either or the iTunes store. Then you can watch the episode any time you want to.

If Days of Our Lives is your favorite, you’ll want the free NBC App from the iTunes store.  You can also watch the good folks in Salem on Hulu by downloading the Hulu app from iTunes.

General Hospital can be viewed on the Watch ABC app, also available in the the iTunes store.  You will need to to sign in with the name of a cable or satellite provider.  You can also watch on the Hulu app if you have a Hulu Plus subscription.  ABC’s move towards requiring a Hulu Plus or naming a cable or satellite provider has caused a few complaints.

If Spanish-language telenovelas are for you – there’s also a Telemundo app available in the iTtunes store.

You may not be able to view on the same day it airs, but you don’t have to worry about missing an episode.
