From my understanding Prospect Park is doing this because they thought it would be easier on viewers to keep up. Mainly because they have noticed that the majority of viewers are downloading the shows on weekends and watching the in marathons. Now whether this is true or not remains to be seen. I have a feeling that even though AMC and OLTL have been successful online the cost to put them out is still higher then what is being made for them on average. So, scaling them back to two episodes a week will help with the cost. I just wish that Prospect Park would of just said this and then made it clear that they are still committed to the shows, but right now the venture hasn't paid off because of the cost. I think this is the main reason whether they will admit it or not. I think putting these shows out was more of cost then they realized it would be, but I just wish they would come out and say this instead of concerning people. Because with what they have said there are those who now think the shows won't last online. As for not watching we can't give up just because Prospect Park is making up some lame excuse, we have to support these shows. Regardless of this set back, they are still doing well online and we have to see to it that they continue to do well.
