Days Of Our Lives Spoilers Days of our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that the NBC sudser has moved to Peacock, a streaming service in which viewers pay by the month to watch their favorite shows. That didn’t sit well with a very vocal fan base who found the move at turns rude, offensive and even impossible for those on a fixed income.

The switchover is a done deal and fans continue to vent spleen about their feelings at the network deciding without their input to make them pay to watch a show they have enjoyed, sometimes through the generations, for over half a century.

It’s only fair for the actors themselves to weigh in on the historic move.

Days Of our Lives Spoilers – Jarlena Speak Out

Select stars spoke to SOD about the decision to put DOOL behind a paywall. Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) said she feels “enormous relief to have another home,” after rumors of cancellation. She is happy she still has a show to go to and so close to home.

Her onscreen partner Drake Hogysten (John Black) joked about needing some help from the young ‘uns to figure out how to stream the soap he’s starred on for decades. “It’s going to be amazing. Things are changing and it’s all going to be good.”

On the other hand Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez) noted, “I was excited. I see it as a great, fun, innovative move ….”

Conversely James Read (Abe Carver) was honest in saying he didn’t know what to think at first. He added that the show has been on the air for 57 years but in the end he is embracing the new.

Eric Martsolf (Eric Brady) had this to say: “I think it’s a good thing.” He said he has seen, “the power of streaming.” Of course he referred to its use by his twin 16-year old boys and he thinks that once the word gets out, people will see how simple the transition is.

No one expects the stars to bad mouth or denigrate, challenge or even agree with the majority of fans who neither like nor agree with the change which requires loyal viewers to pay for what was once free, free not for a trial period but for decades, a show that generations watched together. The only constant is change. But that doesn’t mean everyone has to like it. Tell us what you think of the switch to Peacock DOOL fans.

    I’m very disappointed in the switch to streaming. I can’t watch it on tv now, only on my computer or iPad. I will take my free trial then cancel. I refuse to pay for what should be free and I suspect it’s only a matter of time before they cancel DOOL for good, life will go on without DOOL, but it makes me sad!

      I agree with you. We did the same thing and took the 1 year offer for 1.99 per month. After the year I will cancel too. I have to admit there are so many shows including Beyond Salem which is a phenomenal show. Plus lots of regular shows that are on NBC, and tons of other movies that may interest you.

    If you have cable you are already paying to watch. I don’t have cable I use apps like Peacock. You don’t need cable to get the shows you want.

    I honestly didn’t think I’d like streaming. I gave it a try using the 1.99 per month offer for a year. When you pay for the whole year in one payment, with tax it’s a one time payment of around 21.00. We don’t have a smart T.V. so we watch Peacock on our desktop computer that has a very wide screen. You can also stream it on your tablets or cell phones anywhere or anytime. One of the biggest perks is you don’t have to wait for the show to come on in a particular time slot. You wake up in the morning and it’s on your devise. I’ll try it for the year and see what happens.

    I am very disappointed too. I have been a days watcher since the 70’s. Refuse to pay to watch it though. So sad that they made this switch.
