Because Days of Our Lives is moving to Peacock, this means that fans of the show will have to pay a monthly subscription in order to continue watching all of the drama along with the trials and tribulations that their favorite characters go through in this fictional town of Salem. Reports say that Days of Our Lives will move to its new home as early as September 12th.

“This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement with viewers,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, in a statement. “With a large percentage of the ‘Days of Our Lives’ audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

As many fans probably already know, Days of Our Lives is the longest-running entertainment series that the broadcast has ever aired. While DOOL is the least watched out of the four main soaps that are still on the air, it pulls in an estimated 1.7 million viewers per day. In comparison, The Young and the Restless over at CBS sees about 3.47 million viewers on any given day.
