A SUMMER OF “BIG BROTHER” ACROSS ALL SCREENS – ON-AIR, ONLINE, ON CABLE AND ON TABLETS AND MOBILE PHONES

“Big Brother’s” 24/7 Live Feeds Move to CBS.com with New Features Added

Full Episodes Available On CBS's New iOS App

TVGN is the New Home of Big Brother After Dark

LOS ANGELES – BIG BROTHER debuts its new season on the CBS Television Network on Wednesday, June 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) in a big fashion across all screens. New this year, fans can access the show’s popular 24/7 Live Feeds subscription service directly on CBS.com, watch full episodes via the CBS App for iOS, and catch a curated live feed from the house during the late-night hours on the TVGN entertainment network.

In addition to this season’s new multiplatform offerings, BIG BROTHER will continue to offer fans opportunities to use social media to unlock exclusive content, impact the house and interact with this season’s Houseguests.

“We’re building on BIG BROTHER’s major strides in interactivity – including primetime reality TV’s first live Twitter vote – by bringing the show’s die-hard fans even more opportunities to impact components of the show and interact with this season’s houseguests,” said Rob Gelick, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Platforms for CBS Interactive Entertainment. “Fans will have the most immersive, 360-degree BIG BROTHER experience ever, across every possible screen, including social media integrations, the Live Feeds on CBS.com, and full episodes on the CBS App."

The social, interactive and multiplatform features fans can look forward to this season include:

BIG BROTHER Live Feeds on CBS.com: The BIG BROTHER Live Feeds are moving home to CBS.com. Available via subscription on a season-long or monthly basis, the Live Feeds will provide an exclusive all-access pass to the BIG BROTHER house.

For more information or to sign-up for an Early Bird Special, fans can visit:
http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/live_feed/ (As in past years, CBS may delay and/or black out the webcast on occasion in order to preserve the drama for BIG BROTHER television viewers).

BIG BROTHER Live Feeds on Mobile Devices: In addition to watching on CBS.com, subscribers will also be able to access the BIG BROTHER Live Feeds on mobile devices by visiting cbs.com/bblivefeeds/ from their mobile browser.

BIG BROTHER on the CBS App: iPhone and iPad users can catch up on full episodes of BIG BROTHER on the CBS App, where they will also be able follow and join the social media conversation around the show, view photos and get details on the cast. As in previous years, full-length episodes and clips will also be available on CBS.com and across select CBS Audience Network partner sites.

CBS.com’s BIG BROTHER Live Chat: The weekly “BIG BROTHER Live Chat” web series returns with host and former BIG BROTHER Houseguest Jeff Schroeder. Every Friday, Schroeder will take questions directly from fans via BIG BROTHER Connect and interview House Guests and series experts in a live online webcast.

New this season, the BIG BROTHER house will also feature a photo booth where House Guests will take exclusive photos to share with fans on CBS.com.

BIG BROTHER will once again be presented on multiple platforms and on multiple nights of the week on broadcast and premium cable television:

BIG BROTHER on The CBS Television Network: BIG BROTHER returns Wednesday, June 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. Following the premiere, BIG BROTHER will be broadcast three nights weekly – Sundays (8:00 - 9:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning June 30), Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning July 2) and the LIVE eviction show hosted by Julie Chen will be broadcast on Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT, beginning July 3).

BIG BROTHER on TVGN: Starting this summer, TVGN (TV Guide Network) will become the exclusive television destination for BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK, a curated live feed from the BIG BROTHER house during the late-night hours. BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK will air two hours, seven nights a week (12:00-2:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT) beginning Wednesday, June 26. During its premiere week, BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK will air commercial-free on TVGN. To locate TVGN on basic cable, viewers can visit
www.tvgn.tv
for a channel finder.

Last summer, BIG BROTHER experienced significant growth across platforms. The on-air social integrations – including primetime reality television’s first live Twitter vote, which gave fans the opportunity to influence components of the show in real-time – helped drive a 558% increase in social conversation over the previous season.

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 53 cameras and 97 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand price of $500,000. BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

It was a good first season , I enjoyed it. I liked the tasks that they houseguests had to do. However, near the end it was boring and there were a few too many twists.

I guess we can't get them because it is on the CBS site.

Yes CBS is going to be offering the feeds this season rather than SuperPass... Canadians aren't able to access the CBS site? What happens when you go to it? I wouldn't get bummed just yet Sammy especially how many Canadians fans there are of BB, I'm sure someone will somehow make it so that they'll be able to access the feeds.

Sammy...i was watching the feeds on justintv. People in Canada were streaming them to us...i found links on hamsterwatch and jokers when they started. I was also able to watch them directly on the ipad. I have no idea why the apple products allowed the feeds through. Maybe because their security doesnt allow the website to know where the user is located. (just a thought).

I also found this on facebook for you :

I also Watched bbca On Justintv. I found the link at jokers.

Ladies it would of been great if you covered BBCA. It was accually a great season with one of the biggest Moments in a finale ever. The one thing I really enjoyed about Big Brother Canada was it was an All new cast. I really Hope Kasstings has learned from BBCA And casts a really great cast of people (instead of some models).

Ill make sure when the season comes closer to look for ways for you to watch the feeds sammy.

Hey CC and Bostongirl!

It was Very similar to BB US. There were alot of Twist but I really loved that it was all new people and most were fans. I'm hoping BB15 is all newbies like the rumors are saying cause I think Fresh Faces are better. I think the thing I loved most about BBCA was the House. It was so much better then the BBUS House (Since there remodeling the house I hope we have an amazing house this year)

Basically what happen in the finale The Final Vote were being cast (and rules are you vote for a winner like how it is on BB US and even Survivor) . Well Topaz was voting for her Best friend Gary to win but instead put Jillian key in the slot. The votes came out 4-3. So basically Topaz mistake caused Jillian to win the game and her Best friend Gary to lose. She freaked out too like production was pulling something on her. It was crazy.

Hi sammy, I know your Canadian, so am I, so here are some suggestions for how to get around this. Yes, unfortunately the feeds will not be available to Canadians this year because of licensing regulations here in Canada, but do not despair. What you can do is sign up for the feeds using your credit card but maybe instead find a U.S. zip code number to put in instead, and you can also get an ip proxy that shows you as living in the States. It sucks but it is what it is.

There weren't any real differences, the show was a complete carbon copy of the U.S. version, and the cast wasn't so great so it got boring very early on. But it has been renewed for a second season, so hopefully next year it gets better.

CC - It's hard to tell if that's true or not.  I haven't heard too much about it but Hayden is suppose to be on Survivor for the next season of that
 so who knows....

Sammy - that was a crazy moment.... seemed kind of fake,  do you think she is that dumb to choose someone she didn't want to win?

I've heard the Survivor rumor (which i do think is true) But Isn't Big Brother Cast by an entirely different company then Survivor and TAR.  

Can't wait for this season to begin and to hear what you ladies think :)

At first I thought it couldn't be real and she was acting because it did seem over the top. However, I think she just made a mistake. Her speech when putting in her key was a dig at Jill because during an endurance comp it came down to Jill and Topaz and Jill told Topaz her and Alec were 150%. Jill then put up both of them, so it would seem that her vote was suppose to be against Jill. In interviews she said that she had Jillian on the mind and didn't realise which key she put.

I'm interested in this twist that America will have some power weekly (I don't know if I like it yet but it could work) Hopefully if we give a person power once then we can't give it to them again.

And The familiar face has to be a Survivor or TAR player.
