Every Big Brother fan looks forward to the season premiere each summer. But every Big Brother super fan anticipates the moment the live feeds go up and the real fun starts. Every season, including the much-anticipated Season 24, there are live feeds of the houseguests that can be accessed online after each new episode airs (and usually in between episodes too).
But first (as our fearless leader and host Julie Chen Moonves is iconic for saying), you'll need to know how to watch the Big Brother live feeds this time around. In the past, it was all about having an account on CBS All Access. But now, things are a bit different, and you'll want to get familiar with the new process.
Here's how to watch the 'Big Brother' live feeds this season.
This season, Big Brother live feeds are available on the Paramount Plus app, which costs $11.99 per month (with a 7-day free trial). The live feeds have always cost a bit extra, but with the amount of drama you get, most "Life Feeders" consider the price to be totally worth it. Of course, you can also keep an eye on Twitter or Reddit to get the juiciest info — just not in real-time.
After the July 6, 2022, season premiere of Big Brother airs on both CBS and the Paramount Plus app, you can then use the Paramount Plus app to watch the houseguests get to know each other better without the edited episodes to guide a certain narrative. It's with these live feeds that Big Brother fans are usually privy to inside jokes, a heads-up on alliances, and even some nifty spoilers before the episodes air.
The 'Big Brother' schedule for Season 24 is important to follow.
Like previous seasons of Big Brother, Season 24 is a doozy in terms of the showtimes and days. Whereas most reality TV shows air once per week, Big Brother takes up three entire days on the network.
You can watch it on CBS or Paramount Plus at 8 p.m. ET on Sundays and Wednesdays and then again at 9 p.m. ET on Thursdays for the live episode. However the live Thursday episodes usually result in a delay in the feeds going back up afterward.
Can you watch the 'Big Brother' live feeds for free?
Unfortunately, there isn't really a way to hack the system or watch the Big Brother live feeds for free. There is a free 7-day trial of Paramount Plus if you just want to give the streaming app a try before you commit to anything further, though.
Sometimes the live feeds end up being worth a few months of paying for the service. Other times, you might find yourself a little too invested in watching the houseguests sleep at 3 a.m.
Watch Big Brother on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount Plus.
