Need Help Buying the Live Feeds? #BB14

I have received a few messages from Big Brother fans who have always wanted to buy the live feeds, but don't feel comfortable making that decision.

I am here to help and walk you through it.  In the old days (2 -3 years ago) you had to download a "RealPlayer" on your computer and then use that to watch the live feeds.  It is much easier now--now you just log on to the live feed stream over the internet from whereever you are.  (As long as you have an internet connection, that is.)  This year you also get free mobile access to the live feeds --last year I think you had to pay an extra $5 but this year it is included with your basic SuperPass subscription.

If you'd like to sign up for a SuperPass subscription,  you can take advantage of the Early Bird Special through July 11th, and save 25%, paying only $29.99 for three months worth of access.  I'm no mathematician, but that works out to about 33 cents per day.  Big Brother provides a lot of drama for the price, if you ask me.  Three months of SuperPass is enough to cover the entire BB14 season.  After that you can either cancel or sign up for another 3 months. Contrary to popular opinion, it is pretty easy to cancel, although sometimes they offer you a free month or two when you call to cancel.  I've never had a problem with it, and I have been ordering the live feeds for over 10 years now.  (!)

Big Brother 14 will premiere on CBS on July 12th--you can still sign up for the live feeds after the Early Bird Special Offer expires, but then the price increases to  $39.99 for a three-month subscription (44 cents per day), or $14.99 per month (50 cents per day).

With any of the plans there is a free 3-day trial period--you can try it for free before your credit card is charged.

OK, if you click the button on the upper left corner of this website, you will see a log on screen with the following picture.

Now, I understand SuperPass featuring popular Big Brother players like Brenchal and Jeff & Jordan.  I'm not sure what the deal is with these photographs of Ozzie and Coach from Survivor.  Have you ever seen Ozzie look like that?  Maybe his hair is clean in that snapshot and that is what is throwing me off.  I'm not sure if they are trying to confess something about their relationship.  Not that there is anything wrong with it.  I'm just sayin'.  (Did you know that Ozzie has dated Lindsey Lohan?)

Once you indicate that you'd like to sign up, you are taken to a screen asking for your basic info and your credit card info.  After you sign up, note that your credit card will not be charged for three days, reflecting the 3-day trial period mentioned above.

Then, you're ready to go.  It's that simple.  Right now you will see this screen:

The live feeds will broadcast in that big "Thanks for Watching" window.  There are usually 4 diffferent camera views, or you can view the "quad" view and see all four at once.    Down at the bottom there are links to current shows and videos.  You can also enter a chat room while you watch the feeds--at any given time there are hundreds of chat rooms to visit where you can discuss the live feed action and make friends online.  I'm not a regular chatter, personally (too busy writing live feed updates for this website) but I know there are former houseguests who chat frequently.  One time Bunky from BB2 came into the chat room and talked to us.

There are also links to watch Flashbacks--you pick a date, time and camera view that you'd like to see and you can watch the action anytime.  This is great if you missed something, or actually needed to leave your house to buy food or other items necessary for survival.

CAUTION:  The live feeds are addictive.  If you've never signed up for them, you are in for a treat.

There are also a number of original shows created by SuperPass for the Big Brother fans (also Survivor and The Amazing Race).  I hit the drop down menu on the screen above to show you.  I see Rumor Control listed and am going to do my best to watch the first show scheduled for tonight at 6:00 PM EST.  (Dani Donato and Rachel Reilly!)  There is a show called Tribal Talk that I assume will cover the upcoming season of Survivor--I plan to watch that  too.

Every Thursday there is the Happy Hour leading up to the live show.  Looks like the hosting line up is a little different this year.

Also the aforementioned Rumor Control, to discuss the rumors before the season starts.  I don't have to tell you how exciting that hosting line up is---these three ladies are the Queens of Big Brother as far as I'm concerned.

This year there is also a new show hosted by Matt Hoffman (BB12) and Adam Poch (BB13) called Rants & Roars.  I am guessing the two of them will burp, fart, and discuss Big Brother 14 in some sort of manly fashion.  Or maybe Adam will sip Appletinis and talk about Donna Martin.  ***whatever***  I've seen Matt host podcasts before and I trust him to keep things moving in an intelligent and humorous manner.  Big Matt fan here.  Big fan.

So this gives you an idea of what you will experience with the live feeds, as well as the sign-up process.   Thank you in advance for your support this season.  Please bookmark this page, or follow me on Twitter to get immediate notification of any live updates or other relevant posts.

It's just a few weeks away!  So exciting!
