Big Brother is a very popular TV reality game show on the CBS network. Because it is on network television, it is free to watch if you live in the US. Typically, you would need to have a basic cable or satellite subscription. The other option is to use an antenna for your TV.
The first Big Brother aired in the US on July 5th, 2000. The show was originally started in the Netherlands, but came to the US next. Since then, the show has become internationally syndicated. The house and the twists in the game change every year, and that ensures the game stays fresh. Contestants must always find a way to adapt to whatever circumstances occur.
Let’s take a look at some ways to watch the US version of the show if you are traveling outside of the country.
Using CBS All Access to stream Big Brother
In late 2014, CBS launched a streaming service called CBS All Access. This popular OTT (over the top) offering allows the subscriber the opportunity to watch the great programming online without any other service. You can watch certain programs while they’re being aired, and you have the ability to purchase or drop your subscription at any time. The cost is $5.99 a month with limited commercials, or the commercial free plan for $9.99 a month after the 7 day free trial.
The service is available on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Android, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, Windows, and more. Be sure to check the website if we did not list your favorite device or operating system here.
Use PlayStation Vue to watch Big Brother
The PlayStation Vue streaming service (often called PS Vue) is another option you have. It offers the user more than 45 channels for $40 a month without a contract. Those channels include ABC, Bravo, Fox, NBCSN, ESPN, and many more. PS Vue does not only focus on sports, but gives you other popular choices as well. It is one of the only services to offer the big 4 US networks. PSVue is offering a 5-day free trial to new users.
It is compatible with PS3, PS4, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, Android, and others. With this one, you have the option of streaming up to 5 devices at one time, and you can also stream and play video games. Those factors make PS Vue a good option to watch the show.
