CBS All Access is a standalone digital streaming service that gives subscribers access to live and on-demand content from the nation’s most-watched network for just $5.99 a month. For Big Brother fans in the US, CBS All Access (review) lets you watch 24/7 Big Brother live feeds, live Big Brother episodes as they air, and full episodes on demand the day after they air. It’s the exclusive home for Big Brother: Over the Top, but you can watch the new season of Big Brother 19 on All Access as well as a couple other options. Over the Top, for now, is exclusive to CBS All Access, but BB will remain on broadcast television in its regular Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday schedule.

CBS All Access will also give fans of the show access to a ton of exclusive content only available to subscribers. You can watch Big Brother online on your TV (using your Roku or Google Chromecast streaming player), phone, tablet, or PC through the app. Roku now even has its own dedicated Big Brother channel for CBS All Access subscribers.

CBS All Access is currently offering a free 7-day trial for those who want to try the service.

  • Big Brother Live Feeds: Every subscriber in the US can enjoy the full Big Brother experience with 24/7 live footage of what’s going on in the Big Brother house as it happens.

Maybe you’re a sports fan who also can’t say no to some riveting Big Brother drama? Then maybe fuboTV is the right streaming option for you. This service mostly offers sports channels (great for watching your regional home teams) but also gives you a few general interest channels such as USA, FOX, and so on. We suggest you see the full fuboTV channels list in our review to see if it looks up your alley! The cheapest package starts at $34.99.

If you live in markets where CBS owns and operates stations, you will be able to use fuboTV to watch Big Brother online. The station will be available as a live stream, which means you’ll be able to have the Big Brother live feed! What’s even better is this service comes with a cloud DVR that will let you record important BB episodes if you’re not able to see them live. So you’ll never miss out–just stay away from spoilers! FuboTV also gives you beautiful HD streams for great viewing.

Curious whether or not fuboTV is right for you? Try it out for free and let us know what you think!


Access Big Brother Live Feeds with PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue is another competitive streaming service on the market that starts at $29.99 per month. Don’t be fooled by the name, either–you can use this service regardless if you’re a PlayStation user. You can watch on pretty much every popular streaming device, including PS3 and PS4. PS Vue also comes with a cloud DVR like fuboTV, but unfortunately, CBS blocks this feature on its channel. PS Vue also keeps you tied to your home location. You’ll experience some difficulty if you try to watch the Big Brother live feed on your mobile device.

Speaking of the Big Brother live feeds, you can access it with PS Vue as long as you live in one of about 80 different market areas, which is great news. If you live in a market with live local channels, the base price jumps to $39.99. Though 80 markets is a lot, it doesn’t cover every area, so we suggest you take a look at your local availability before you go gung-ho and sign up for Vue. While you’re at it, read through our PlayStation Vue review to make sure you know everything there is to know.

Despite its couple downfalls, Vue is a great choice if you need a service with a variety of channels for the whole family. Test it out with the free 5-day trial so you can snag free Big Brother live feeds while you’re at it!


Is Big Brother on Hulu?

No, Hulu does not carry Big Brother streaming. But you are welcome to read more about Hulu and what they offer in our review! Hulu also offers a free trial period.


Is Big Brother on Amazon Prime?

No, Big Brother is not available on Amazon Prime. However, Amazon Prime comes with many features that you may find interesting. Read our Prime review and sign-up for the 3o-day free trial if you want to try it out!


Is Big Brother on Netflix?

Big Brother is not available on Netflix. If you want to learn more about why Netflix is the most popular streaming service in the U.S., we give you a breakdown in our review.


Other Ways to Watch Big Brother Online

Though you can use CBS All Access for 24/7 Big Brother live feeds, live Big Brother episodes, on-demand episodes, and other exclusive content, there are some other options for those who want to watch Big Brother online. Here are some ways you can enjoy prior and current seasons of Big Brother online:

  • CBS puts many of its shows up on for free the day after they air. There’s a decent chance they’ll make Big Brother episodes available this way for a limited time, but remember, this won’t give you access to the 24/7 Big Brother live feed and the episodes probably won’t stay up on the website for very long.
  • Amazon Instant Video: In the past, Big Brother episodes have been available for purchase on Amazon Instant Video the day after the episode airs on TV. Typically, these episodes cost $1.99 and up each. With three episodes of Big Brother airing every week, this can get really expensive, especially when compared to just $5.99 a month for CBS All Access.
  • iTunes: iTunes makes Big Brother episodes available for download the day after they air. Usually, the cost per episode is anywhere from $1.99 to $2.99. Again, this can become very expensive over the course of a long season.

  1. Hi. We have our Roku hooked up, but it’s only giving us the options to watch live feed clips?? Are we doing something wrong?

    Also, I’ve already paid for the All Access and it says I need to pay 15.99 so is this a seperate charge or is there a way I can just sign on from my access online.

    Please advise

    Thank you!

  2. I have the All Access to watch live streams , and have been watching them for about a week, then I can not get in. I cannot find a way to access it. I type in, and a menu appears , and all I get is Jeff advertizments for all Access! What am I doing wrong

  3. Hello, I was just wanting to know the exact roku player I need to get to watch the live feeds on the television? I have read the cbs faq but it just mentions roku in general. Im not sure if the roku stick will work, or if I need roku 1, roku 2, or roku 3 streaming player to get the full live feeds. Thanks.

  4. I can’t watch the videos for the highlights do I need a certain player to watch that

  5. Can u not get the rewind feature on a tablet or iPhone?

  6. Andy Waterson | August 26, 2016 at 8:33 pm |

    I am currently watching big brother through an apple TV hook up, I am unable to get the flashbacks or chats like I can on my pc. Is there another device that will allow these options.
    Thank you

  7. Hello,
    My question is I have PlayStation Vue with CBS showing big brother the show.
    Do I still need to download the CBS all access app on my PS4 and pay the 6$ a month, or will the live feeds be apart of my PlayStation vue subscription?

    • Breanne Rushing | June 27, 2017 at 1:30 pm |

      Hello Tim,
      As a Vue subscriber and Big Brother fan myself, I’m glad I spotted this question!
      Just to be clear, are you referring to the live stream of regular episodes like the season premiere, or to the 24/7 live feeds?
      If you can turn Vue on right now and watch a live stream of CBS (like the news, for example), then you will be able to watch the premiere of BB19 tomorrow night. However, if you find that CBS shows are only available on demand or DVR, then you will need to subscribe to All Access in order to watch it live.

      If you wanted to watch the 24/7 live feeds, then you will need to pay for CBS All Access because the live feeds are separate from the show. As an alternative to the live feeds you could watch’BB After Dark’on the POP channel, and that should be included with your Vue subscription.
      I hope that clears things up for you. If you need more help, just let me know!
