I love the Big Brother live feeds. I get them each year and it’s worth every penny. So I’m pleased to share the news that RealNetworks has rolled out a ridiculously good “early bird” deal that will make the entire season of Big Brother 11 live feeds virtually free if you sign up now and follow my steps below.
Here’s how it works: the Big Brother Feed is usually $15 per month, but again this year RN is offering up a quarterly discount so you can get 3 months for $30. $30 is more than $0, so let me explain how that can work out to costing you nothing extra thanks to a commonly overlooked benefit of the Big Brother live feeds.
Click here to Sign-Up now for BB11 Live Feeds!
Do you listen to music, buy mp3s online, or even still purchase CDs? With your SuperPass subscription you receive $10 worth of mp3 downloads every month* which will often cover a full album if you want. 3 months of $10 worth of music you were going to buy already makes the live feeds cost you $0 in the end.
Sweet deal right? You bet it is. So with Big Brother 11 ending in mid-September all you need is 3 months to get you through the entire season. $30 Big Brother SuperPass – $30 Free Music = $0 Live Feeds to keep you in the game all summer.
I don’t know how much longer RealNetworks will offer this deal so I went ahead and signed up. I recommend you do the same and be ready when BB11 starts!
Update: Several readers have expressed concerns that this still costs them money. Yes, it does, but if you were already spending that money on iTunes or Amazon then spend that same money at SuperPass and you’ll get the live feeds with it. If mp3s aren’t your thing, then this is still a deep discount at $30 versus the regular $45.
Update 2: Ahrean points out that this deal ends July 9th with the season premiere. Thanks for the tip, Ahrean!
Update 3: Instructions for obtaining your monthly $10 of mp3 downloads can be found here on RealNetworks’ website.
*Only U.S. subscribers receive the $10 of mp3’s, says RealNetworks.
umm yeah great deal, have you ever heard of torrents…..you can download music for free. no thanks.
You mean “steal music for free”? No thanks.
If you’re buying mp3s already and you want the live feeds for free then this is a great deal. Artists get paid, you avoid illegal piracy, and everyone goes home happy.
I love Big Brother and appreciate the effort put into this blog to keep us informed.
But this scheme to supposedly get the live feed for free is ridiculous and should be deleted. It doesnt make any logical sense because it isnt free at all. I still pay 30 bucks no matter what I use it for.
Not sure if you are getting some kinda advertising money from the link you have provied but you should check your morals before posting crap like this!!
@Robert: I apologize if you’re offended by the details above, but I certainly don’t believe advising others of this deal is a moral issue.
Many of the readers here purchase the live feeds each season and I’d wager many of them overlook the opportunity to receive their free mp3 downloads. In an economy where everyone wants to stretch their dollars this actually is a really good deal for Big Brother fans that are buying the feeds and already buying mp3s elsewhere.
I honestly bought the feeds last night in advance of the show’s premiere because of this deal. I had been looking to pick up a new album from Amazon (I’m not an iTunes guy), but instead of paying for it there I paid for my entire season of Big Brother live feeds and can now get the album that I was already going to buy. That dropped $10 off the cost of the feeds because it was $10 I was already going to spend. Instead of going to Amazon for the next 2 months I can get my mp3s on SuperPass and I’ve gotten my feeds for free.
You can look at it in 2 ways: pay for the feeds, get the mp3s free; or pay for the mp3s, get the feeds free. I’m in the latter case. If you don’t buy music then maybe this isn’t a good deal for you other than the $30 for the season of live feeds versus $45 (month-by-month cost), but that’s what the post above already detailed.
This special is good through the premiere, July 9th. After that you have to pay full cost. And the free mp3’s is a good deal. Thanks Big Brother Network. :)
@Ahrean: You’re very welcome. Thanks for the tip on the deal’s end date. I’ve updated the post to reflect.
Just signed up for the live feeds and the music WAS NOT offered to me. Instead a game membership was offered….No free downloads?????
@EnigmaMadeira: The music is offered, don’t worry. I got that same “games” offer as well, but declined. Here are the instructions straight from RealNetworks:
Here is a second set of instructions, also from RealNetworks:
Each month you’ll be able to go in and “request” your $10 credit. Be sure to do that each month so you don’t miss your free downloads.
No problem Matt, anytime! :)
