While the Early Bird sale has begun weeks earlier than ever before I’m seeing a lot of details coming from CBS on what subscribers will get with their Feeds this year and so far it’s looking really good.
As usual we’ll get desktop, tablet, and mobile device, 24/7 access to content, but we all know the Feeds aren’t always available due to competitions, ceremonies, and the occasional brawl-turned-ejection. So thankfully in that downtime we’ll get other bonus features to keep us busy.
New this year we’ll get several Subscriber-Only features including online votes that will effect the houseguests and possibly the game. CBS says there will be weekly votes on events and activities for us to influence the game, but the votes are only available to those who have signed up for Feeds.
Next, users will have access to an “enhanced tracker” which sounds an awful lot like my status scoreboard I keep updated daily on the week to week events every Big Brother season. I hope that “enhanced” part means they’ll update it with some regularity unlike last season when they waited until after the shows to update a Feeds-only status. Go figure.
Returning are several key features we look for each year. Flashback / Archives is very important. If you ever miss any events on the Live Feeds then you can flip back the timeline just like using a DVR and see what happened. Dial in on any day, hour, minute, and camera view to see what happened and watch as many times as you want. That’s a key part of enjoying the Feeds without having to worry about timing bathroom breaks! What? Is that just me?
On top of the Flashback feature CBS will offer up highlights from every day for you to jump right into rather than having to search across the day or camera views. Much easier.
There will also be Subscriber-Only Chat with other fans in existing chat rooms or create your own and have your friends meet you there.
I’m really excited about the return of the Big Brother Live Feeds this summer and getting back in to a new season with a new mix of Houseguests. We’re due for an awesome Big Brother 16 season! Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and by Email updates so you can get all the latest news and spoilers all summer long.
Thank you to everyone who uses our links and banners to sign-up for their Live Feeds. It really does make a difference for us while not costing you a penny more. I greatly appreciate your support!
