Big Brother’s summer season ends this week but the series returns next week on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016 with the premiere of Big Brother Over The Top, a new online-only series set to run exclusively on your Live Feeds through CBS’s All Access.
The new series is a branch off from Big Brother’s core summer series and will be held exclusively online with a lot of fun improvements for the new series. Don’t worry, Big Brother 19 will be back on TV for the summer of 2017. Best of all, things get started for BBOTT just days after the end of this season!
Since the BBOTT series is exclusively online that means there will be no episodes on CBS TV but instead we’ll get weekly live eviction shows online every Wednesday night at 10PM ET (7PM PT) so everyone will be watching the same show at the same time. There’s also not going to be separate episodes for nominations and the Power of Veto. Those will all be shown live on the Feeds as they happen.
We’ve heard from producer Heath Luman that competitions typically blocked out will be shown 100% and CBS has promised “no scheduled blackouts” which is great. That means instead of waiting seven hours for Feeds to return from the PoV comp we’ll get to see things play out live with immediate results. I imagine this will dictate some changes in the comps selected as well.
If you’re already a Feedster with an active All Access subscription then you’re set and ready to go. If you’re new to watching Big Brother online then you’ll need to sign up for the Free Trial that gets you the first week free and renews at the rate of $5.99 each month. Whenever you’re done and want to cancel you just click the button in your online account at CBS’s website.
Don’t worry about having to crowd around your computer screen or phone to watch Big Brother Over the Top either. It will actually be really easy to watch BBOTT on your TV just like you can with Netflix streaming and on-demand video services. We’ve detailed out instructions on how to watch All Access on your regular TV using devices like Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and a plenty more.
