Android App Now Available For Big Brother Mobile Live Feed

CBS has released the Android App to use for your Big Brother Live Mobile Access.

Update: CBS appears to have restricted downloads of the App to US-only. We are trying to get an answer on why and when it’ll be available for Canadian users. I’ll update here as soon as we learn more.

Here’s how you can get the Big Brother mobile app and use it. First, you’ll need your Live Feeds account sign-ed up and ready. Next navigate your Android browser over to the regular SuperPass site to watch the Feeds (you can use the link in your confirmation email from Real if you’re new to the Feeds). SuperPass will recognize you’re on an Android device and prompt you to each “Launch Application” (which you don’t have yet) or “Get the Application.” Select “Get.” There you go. You’re all set to watch the Live Feeds where ever you are with your Android device.

Keep in mind there is a monthly add-on fee for mobile device access. If you have a 3-month plan the cost is $9.99 total for 3-months of mobile access. If you have a monthly plan the cost is $4.99 for mobile access. Once you pay for use on one mobile device (Android, for example) you can then watch on another device (a second Android or even an iOS device).

Big Brother Mobile app

Couple of things to note: There is no iPhone/iPad app. Those devices can watch mobile Live Feeds without it so just go to your regular SuperPass site. The mobile access does require an additional fee due to the licensing fees. So the app is free, the subsequent access to the Feeds is not. We have more details in our Big Brother Mobile FAQ.

Lastly, if you don’t get the Live Feeds or don’t want to pay for the mobile add-on then we have our Big Brother Network mobile Android App available for free with no ads. Our iPhone app is still in the queue for approval, but that will be here soon too.

  1. Can NOT install this app from Canada. It says that it cannot be installed from your country.

    • Yes, we’re getting reports of that from other Canadian users. This is the first we’ve heard that CBS is restricting access and we hope it’s just an error on their part.

      I’ve asked Real/CBS for a response and will update as soon as we hear back.

  2. Has anyone installed this on their android yet? I called Real and had the mobile app added. Had to go to marketplace to download the app, but I can’t get the feeds. It says I need flash, which I have. Tons of people have commented that they have the same problem.

    • Are you on Verizon? I’m seeing lots of discussion that Verizon phones keep prompting users to download latest Flash version even when they already have it installed.

    • I also am having this problem. I’m running an HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon. I have the latest Adobe Flash Player (10.3) running, and it’s saying I have to install the latest version when I try to play the feeds.

  3. I’ve downloaded all the Android apps and when I sign in it just takes me to a page that says make sure you have Adobe flashplayer 10.3.0 or more…and I do …. what am I doing wrong?

    • Are you also using a Verizon Android phone?

      You might not be doing anything wrong. It’s possibly an issue w/ a conflict between the app and the carrier. Should be fixable though by the developer.

      • Make sure you download the CBS Big Brother app. It does not require the flashplayer and it works great!

      • Tina, the CBS BB app will require Flash to run the Live Feeds. Users will need an Android with version 2.2+ to be able to use Flash and access the Feeds.

      • Feeds work on my rooted captivate version 2.2 with flashplayer 10.3 but not my wife’s HTC aria 2.2 bcuz she has flashplayer lite & u have to have the full version of flash I guess which sucks, cuz in the promos that were running, it said u only needed android 2.2 :-(

  4. Yea, I finally got mine to work! I had to download the adobe update, (free btw, just go to your app store ), and it works like a charm. I’m using Sprint HTC Evo, Android version 2.2, if that helps anyone.

    Now I wont get fired for watching live feeds at work, lol. Now if only I could get my Nook Color rooted so I can watch it on a bigger screen. Hmmm, looks like the hubby has a project this weekend. ;o)

  5. Yet another person from Canada who bought the mobile feeds. Thank so much for getting on top of this Matt!

    • I’ve been hitting up Real for answers and will post an update as soon as we get a response.

      Sorry for the trouble w/ the app up there. No idea why CBS didn’t alert anyone ahead of time (but then again they were more than a day late releasing it in the first place…)

      • Another Canadian here.They never gave any warning about US only, and they seemed to have no problem taking my money for an app they knew I couldn’t use.

  6. I’ve downloaded the application but I can’t seem to find a way to view the live feeds. Can you post some screenshot of the android applications main menu and guide me how to access the live feeds?

    • Yeah, it’s a terrible interface. Okay, to find the Live Feeds, click the “Explore” button down on the right side of the screen. You can also use your “menu” button to pull up the list of options. Then scroll over a few and you’ll see one for the “Live Feeds.” That should do it.

  7. Has anyone got this to work on the xoom? I have it working on the droid incredible but cant get it to work on my xoom

  8. Having problems with my T-Mobile MyTouch 4g. App installed just fine, but I’m having the same problem with the Flash. I have 10.3 installed, but it’s telling me to install it again.

  9. I am having trouble being able to see the live feeds on my HTC Thunderbolt with Verizon service. I have Flash Player 10.3. I have uninstalled and re-installed several times and it still says I have to install flash player to watch. Is there an issue that is being worked on? I hate to pay for something that I cannot use.
