Update: Clearly we were told incorrect information by TVGN. BBAD on TVGN is most definitely 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.
Just as the Big Brother 15 Feeds found a new home this season, “Big Brother After Dark” is moving to a new channel for the 2013 summer series.
Instead of airing on SHO2 again this year, BBAD will appear on TVGN, a free cable channel, that reaches 80+ million homes but to check if it’s available from your provider go to www.tvgn.tv and enter your zip code in the red “Channel Finder” box to confirm. If it’s not available from your provider, like AT&T’s U-Verse, then be sure to them know you want them to pick up that channel. If enough people ask, then maybe they’ll react.
Along with a new home for “After Dark,” the episodes will be shorter this season. Instead of three hours you’ll get two hours of Live Feeds entertainment starting each night at 12PM ET/PT and running until 2AM ET/PT. East coast broadcasts will be live while West coast shows are pre-recorded from the East’s episodes. Our Canadian friends can catch BBAD on Slice nightly from 4AM to 6AM ET. (Thanks, Brandon!)
“Big Brother After Dark” will not be censored. I repeat, “After Dark” will be uncensored. We confirmed this with TVGN’s Leslie Furuta, the Senior Vice President of Communications and Media Relations. She told us “there is literally no difference between ‘Big Brother: After Dark’ on TVGN and past season of the show previously on SHO2.” So don’t freak out with expectations or speculations that discussions will be bleeped or bottoms blurred. That will not happen. BBAD will be on cable and airing after midnight so it will have the same limitations as SHO2 had in the past seasons.
If you can’t get TVGN with your provider, you want more than just two hours a night, or you don’t trust “it’s uncensored, we promise” then we highly recommend signing up for the Live Feeds. They’re like BBAD on steroids. You can watch around the clock instead of just two hours of set time a night. Pick between different camera views instead of what they want to put on your screen. Rewind the Feeds using “Big Brother Archives” like a DVR and catch events you missed. Plus, at $23.99 for the full summer it’s cheaper this year than three months of Showtime.
