‘Big Brother Over The Top’ Starts In 3 Weeks – Update: Free Month Of All Access

Big Brother may be wrapping up its 18th season in just two weeks from tonight but buckle up because in a mere three weeks we’ll be watching a brand new season with the spinoff installment of Big Brother Over The Top, an All Access exclusive for CBS.

Big Brother Over The Top

The new season of BBOTT will start online Wednesday, September 28, 2016 with an expected debut at 10PM ET (7PM PT) for an hour long live show that’s going to get us ramped up and ready for the new ten week season only on your All Access account.

With the crash course schedule ahead of us overlapping with the end of Big Brother 18 we don’t have the typical build up with the house reveal, twist announcements, and cast speculations. I imagine we’ll be seeing the very same house though let’s hope they burn anything not nailed down and start over with new beds and sheets.

As for the cast I’ve got my fingers crossed for an all new set of Houseguests especially after we just got through seeing Veterans playing this summer. We could also get a smaller cast with the shorter schedule run and that’d be nice too though I’d miss Double Eviction events.

We’re checking in with CBS to see if there’s an opportunity for us to meet the cast for interviews before the season starts but with the close overlaps between seasons I’m really not sure how that’ll all work out. Typically the HGs go in about five or so days before the season starts and that’d leave barely any time for this, but without prepackaged episodes it’s entirely possible we may be watching them enter the house on the first night as it happens. Now that’d be wild.

Are you planning to watch Big Brother Over The Top on All Access? You’ll need a subscription to the Live Feeds and you can get the Free Trial now to enjoy the end of BB18 and be ready for BBOTT in a few weeks. The cost is $5.99/month and yes, you can watch it all on your TV with streaming devices so no need to huddle around the computer.

Update: CBS just announced they’re giving out a full month free trial of All Access but the promo code FALLACCESS expires on 9/16/16. If you use the code before it expires then you’ll probably be able to get to the end of BBOTT with just two months purchased dropping the season’s cost by a third. You’re down to about 13 cents a day to watch Over The Top. Plus you can watch the rest of BB18 Feeds.

  1. I would definitely be watching since big brother was started as a social experiment, I’d like to see what they have planned for this and what kind of social experiment it actually is going to be. Sign me up, I’m all in for it!

    • Over the Top is an industry term for video (usually TV programs) delivered outside of the traditional pay methods (cable and satellite). You’ll commonly see it abbreviated as “OTT” and I’ve even seen some of that marketing used for the new BB season (series?).

      Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, CBS All Access, etc. are all OTT platforms.

  2. Hoping for an actual likable cast for this season unlike the one that’s airing now LOL. BB18 was an improvement over BB17 and 16 in terms of excitement. Now we need some gamers that are more concerned with winning instead of romances and actually know how to play!

    • I agree and have high hopes for this new season. Production went with an all new casting company for this…could really be good.

  3. Is the live feeds all access account that I currently have, the same all access account needed for BB over the top? and if so is there a extra cost?

    • The commercial free upgrade is $9.99 a month. CBS is sure making a killing trying to act like Netflix and Hulu.

      • They really do have a lot of shows though, I’ve rewatched every episode of Survivor (hulu doesn’t have them all) they have every episode of BB. All the current show seasons,and I watch old shows like Perry mason, The Brady Bunch, Nash Bridges, Everybody Hates Chris too.

  4. Can I use the code on the 16th or have to use it on the 15th? I never got expiration dates very well

    • The code expires on the 16th so you could use it on either day to enjoy the free month.

  5. I’m not sure I understand, how am I suppose to watch this season from Canada, if CBS All Access is not available for Canadians?!

  6. To Nicole you talk about loyalty you should look that up when you go to the jury

  7. I’m ready but don’t like the out come of BB 18 victor and Paul are foul mouths just turned me off and wasted my money trying to watch on CBS all access to much of the f word it like really why do they have to cuss so much
