This year on Big Brother 15, for the first time in thirteen seasons, the Big Brother Live Feeds will not be on SuperPass through Real. Instead CBS will be hosting the Feeds directly along with the sign-up process.
The shift from what we’re all used to has caused a lot of concerns and raising questions. We’re hoping to answer those unknowns here and help get the word out over this season’s new home for Big Brother 15 Feeds.
Do I need SuperPass to watch Big Brother 15 Live Feeds?
No. Not only do you not need SuperPass, you won’t be able to use SuperPass to access Big Brother Feeds at all. Unless you wanted Real’s other services on SuperPass there’s no need to keep that subscription active.
You will need to sign-up through the new system offered from CBS to access the BB Feeds this summer. There is no other option.
Is there an Early Bird price this season? When does it end?
Yes, there is an Early Bird sale this season. You can get the BB15 Live Feeds at a discount if you sign-up for the season pass before the end of June 25th. The price is $23.99 for the entire season which means if you sign-up now you’ll have access to Big Brother content for 4 months making it cost $6/month. Ridiculously cheap this year.
Update: Clearly we were told incorrect information by TVGN. BBAD on TVGN is most definitely still censored (BBAD on Slice is not). We are following up with TVGN to ask why it is being censored and why we were explicitly told it would not be when it most definitely is.
Since the announcement that Big Brother 15‘s “After Dark” series will be moving from Showtime’s SHO2 to the TVGN channel, CBS’s new venture, some fans have loudly championed a return to the old over fears of what this change would mean to their beloved “Big Brother After Dark” episodes. Would the series still be uncensored? What about all the commercials? What’s all this about “curated live feeds”?
Looking to answer many of these unknowns I turned to TVGN’s Leslie Furuta, the Senior Vice President of Communications and Media Relations. Ms. Furuta provided detailed answers to every question we asked and the information she gave us should make a lot of “After Dark” fans very happy.
Will “Big Brother After Dark” be censored on TVGN?:
The biggest question we heard from many fans was whether or not “After Dark” would lose its uncensored privileges when moving from a premium channel to basic cable. “Fans aren’t going to miss out on any context or hot moments happening on “After Dark,” said Leslie Furuta. She went on to explain that while TVGN must adhere to basic cable standards things are already very relaxed during the late night hours. So there you have it. No, “After Dark” will not be censored on TVGN. But wait. There’s more!
Big Brother 15 will arrive even sooner, says CBS as they announce a slew of ways, new and old, for fans to enjoy the 2013 summer season when the premiere kicks off one hour earlier on June 26th. CBS offered up an early preview of their online, mobile, social media, and on-air multiplatform approach to the new season.
Big Brother 15 Expands Online & Mobile Offerings
Driven by last year’s “558 percent increase in social conversation over the previous season” CBS is looking to expand its online experience along with noteworthy changes to its broadcast and mobile approaches. Having launched the Big Brother Live Feeds preseason sale earlier this week, CBS has also revealed users can watch full episodes of the series via the official iOS app. Both iOS and Android mobile devices can access the mobile Live Feeds separately without the app.
Also online will be weekly live chats with fan favorite Jeff Schroeder. Each Friday he’ll be taking questions direct from viewers to interview evicted HouseGuests and “series experts.” Hmm, I wonder who they’ll get to fill that role? Past seasons’ HGs?
The Big Brother 15 Early Bird sale is on for the all-new Live Feeds! CBS has lifted its ban on the details so we’re ready to share the information and links so you can get this limited time preseason price and watch the entire season for $23.99 a 20% cut off the monthly price. This is a huge price drop from what we’ve seen in the past!
This year the Feeds will be provided directly by CBS and will no longer require a subscription to Real’s SuperPass. We’re still discovering what all this change will mean for our beloved Feeds, but so far it looks like all good news.
Once Big Brother 15 starts the sale ends so you’ll need to sign-up by the end of June 25, 2013 to secure the Early Bird sale price and save 20% off the cost. Signing up now will guarantee you access to the “24/7 Live” Big Brother Live Feeds for the full season. If you wait, you can get them later but you’ll pay more for the same thing.
Did you know that when you sign-up for your Feeds through fansites like this one that you directly help support them? We couldn’t do this site each season without you. Your sign-ups through our links and banners make this community possible. Thank you.
Big Brother 15 will premiere later this month as CBS continues to prepare for the new season’s start on Wednesday, June 26, 2013. As we wait anxiously for that day to come we can kick off our preseason discussions with a look at what events are set to take place in the next few weeks.
Update: The preseason sale price for Feeds is now live! Get the details here on the new, lower cost this season plus what features you can expect when you sign-up.
Traditionally the Live Feeds “Early Bird” sale would be kicking off around now but CBS has yet to release any details other than to confirm that there will be Feeds. We’re still anticipating some level of announcement in the near future, but when that happens is anyone’s guess.

The Wednesday episodes will move up an hour to the 8PM timeslot starting July 17, 2013. CBS has gone ahead and moved the Wednesday episodes to 8PM ET/PT from the very start of the season. That’s a great sign for their faith in the series.
This season of Big Brother 15 looks to truly be bigger than ever. We’ve been hearing it all month since host Julie Chen revealed the 2013 season would need “more houseguests than ever.” Now we’re finding out that not only will the season start earlier with a June 26, 2013 premiere, but it’s also set to run longer.
In their latest promo, watch the video below, CBS throws out a new tagline for the Big Brother 15 season with “100 Days of Summer.” Now we’ve heard in the past that the marketing department is sometimes disconnected from the actual production team when it comes to making promises and this might be a similar situation.
