Trumpets please… Big Brother Canada WILL offer 24/7 LIVE FEEDS and they will be FREE.
This is just the news all Big Brother Fans have been waiting for and very much NEEDING but will only Canadian Fans be able to watch the LIVE FEEDS? I will try to find this out but in the mean time lets just hope all USA citizens can watch. I’m very optimistic and soooo excited! Check out Big Brother Canada’s official announcement:
For those who just can’t get enough of the goings on inside the Big Brother Canada house Bigbrothercanada.ca will offer a free 24 hour live feed available for streaming daily following the series premiere on February 27th. Other video exclusives will include houseguests’ answers to questions submitted by fans through Facebook and Twitter, behind the scenes footage you won’t see on air and interviews with favourite previous Big Brother US houseguests. Bigbrothercanada.ca will stream more content than any other entertainment series in the country. Bigbrothercanada.ca and the Big Brother Canada game are accessible on all devices including tablets and smartphones.
Besides the FREE LIVE FEEDS, it looks like they plan to go the route ABC’s The Glass House went and are giving viewers the chance to make decisions that will impact the game. Hmmm. i’m not too sure this will go over well with Big Brother Fans. This is what they are planning to do:
“Social engagement is a huge part of Big Brother’s appeal for fans and we’ve created a completely integrated online experience that will resonate with audiences,” said Barbara Williams, SVP of Content for Shaw Media. “We’ve developed a platform that gives our audience countless opportunities to engage and make decisions that will impact the series in real time and in fact, there may even be moments throughout the series that fans could have more power over the happenings in the house than the houseguests themselves!” The robust website will empower fans to continually shock the houseguests and influence the course of the show. Big Brother Canada promises Canadians the opportunity to vote for major decisions throughout the season. What if Canadians are given the chance to determine houseguests’ rewards and punishments? Imagine they have the opportunity to influence the food in the house? And who will fans choose if given the power to save a life or the final say in an eviction? Canadians will have their say, but as to how much will be revealed as the series unfolds.
And they go on by creating an online game called “Big Brother Canada Power Play”. They call it a prediction game because you Vote which houseguest you think will win the HoH, PoV, plus more. This is how it works:
The site’s Big Brother Canada Power Play prediction game is the ultimate opportunity for the uber-fan. Power Play will give Canadians the best interactive platform to play along while watching the show. Each week fans will be asked to lock in their predictions for who will win Head of Household and the Power of Veto competitions, who will be put up on the block and ultimately who will be evicted. The more each fan participates in the game, the more points they accumulate, and the more potential they have to win prizes and power to shape what’s happening on air.
So What do you all think? Is this what we have all been waiting for? Don’t forget the Big Brother Canada Premiere is on February 27th at 9pm ET/PT onSlice. Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week, on Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT,Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT and Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, with live eviction episodes on Thursdays. Big Brother Canada After Dark will kick off on February 27th and air seven days a week from2am-5am ET/ 11pm-2am PT.
