Big Brother wouldn’t be the same without the Live Feeds and the time has almost come to flip that control room switch and let us start watching all the Houseguests on the in-house cameras. Let’s make sure you’re ready.
If you’re new to the show with Big Brother 18 or you’ve never signed up to watch the Feeds then you’re in for a treat. The Big Brother Feeds feature streaming video and audio from inside the house as the game happens. While episodes often feature content from three or more days earlier what you’re seeing on Live Feeds is just that: live action. Yeah, it’s pretty awesome.
We’ll be able to watch endurance competitions, strategy talk, eviction fallout, showmances blossoming, and all the ridiculous moments in between that won’t ever make it to the broadcast shows. There’s really two versions of Big Brother every summer: what CBS airs and what you watch on the Feeds.
You’ll get four different cameras and a quad-view camera so you can jump around the house or watch it all at once. Video archives let you Flashback to past events over the entire season so it’s always there even if you missed the big moments. Another huge benefit: Live TV streams. Yes, you can likely watch episodes live online during the broadcast as All Access now covers more than 84% of local CBS affiliates.
You’ll also get access to the new “Big Brother After Show” on Fridays, which might just be a rebadging of Jeff’s eviction interviews, but we’ll see. On top of all of that you’ll find 585+ episodes of Big Brother and dozens of other shows with thousands of episodes to watch all included.
Over the years of Feeds we’ve seen an AOL sponsorship in season one to RealNetwork’s SuperPass for a lot of years before coming home to be part of CBS’s own All Access video service, currently the only way to get access to the Feeds. All Access is a sort of NetFlix or Hulu for CBS’s own content which means it’s all online and always available when you want to watch it.
Again this season there’s a one-week Free Trial that you can use to test things out and make sure it’s a good fit, but unless you have tech issues I don’t see you getting through the week and not wanting to keep it. It’s addicting. You’ve been warned! Important note: NO promo code exists or is required.
After the trial period ends CBS will bill you $5.99/month for All Access, which includes the Live Feeds and can be cancelled at any time. This is a flat rate and the same cost no matter where or how you sign up. The only thing that really matters on your sign-ups is that if you use our links or banners then CBS gives us a referral credit and those help fund this site and our efforts. So thank you for your support!
You’ll have a lot of options again this year for watching your Feeds including viewing on desktop/laptop, mobile devices, Roku devices, Apple TV, Amazon’s Firestick, and a lot more. We’ve written a thorough guide on how to find and watch the Feeds on your various devices.
Perhaps the most important point is “when.” The Big Brother Live Feeds begin Thursday night at 10PM PT (6/24 1AM ET) which is when the west coast broadcast of the second night’s episode concludes. Signing up now gets you ready to go with your account and password all worked out and nothing to do but click “Live Feeds” on Thursday night.
Got any questions about watching the Feeds? Post them below and I’ll try to help as best I can so you’re ready to watch everything inside the house this summer.
