Big Brother Canada - Why Are We All Still in the Dark? #BBCanada

So, if you are a Big Brother fan, you know that the first edition of Big Brother Canada will premiere next month.  But we still don't know how we will be able to watch, or if we will be able to watch here in the United States.

The show is airing on Canada's Slice network.  As best I can tell, the Slice Network is a channel programmed for women, and seems to play all of the Real Housewives series that we all know and love (to hate), as well as their own Real Housewives of Vancouver series.  They also show Project Runway episodes, and other reality series like "Bulging Brides" and "I Do, Let's Eat". (No, I'm not making this up.)

It seems that Big Brother Canada plans to follow the US format, with three episodes airing in "prime time" each week on the network.  But they will also feature a Big Brother After Dark series, airing for three hours each evening.  But the Canadian version appears to be airing only on the Slice network, and is not affiliated with Showtime, apparently.  I found this on the Slice network.

It does sort of indicate that the videos will be available online, but don't quote me on that.  I'm just reading what I found on the website.

Why isn't Big Brother Canada letting us know how we can watch the show?  Don't they want our viewership?  Surely they know we have a lot of eyeballs down here.....why are we all still in the dark on this?

WTF Big Brother Canada?  Where is your publicity team?
