As we mentioned previously, Real Player will no longer be hosting the live feeds and now, Showtime will no longer be hosting Big Brother After Dark.

CBS announced today that the ‘After Dark’ feeds will be moving to a new host, TVGN (The TV Guide Network.) After Dark will show 2 hours of feeds and continue to air at midnight Eastern. At this time, we have no idea if the west coast will still get the stale feeds from 3 hours prior, or if TVGN will air ‘After Dark’ at 9 Pacific.

I know many, including myself, had no idea where TVGN is located in your channel line-up. I can tell you that here in my neck of the woods (Los Angeles, TWC) it’s on channel 3 or channel 111. Channel 111 specifically says “TVGN Pacific” so maybe we will be in luck on the west coast?

What does this mean for After Dark? Will the feeds be censored for cussing and nudity? None of us really know the answer to that yet either. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

What do you think about the move? Like it better now that you don’t have to subscribe to a Premium channel to see them, or dismayed that they may be censored? Come join us in the Big Brother Forum (http://www.forum.yakkityyaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=322) and let us know!

This is the beginning of the end. They are messing with a proven thing. Always a bad sign.

Check TVGN.tv for channel finder and info. This is a silly move. TVGN is owned by CBS Corp but isn't Showtime, as well? Why change?

BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK to Air Two Hours, Seven Nights a Week for 13 Weeks

In Conjunction with the June 26 Season Premiere of BIG BROTHER on the CBS Television Network



LOS ANGELES – May 29, 2013 – TVGN today announced that it will become the exclusive television destination for BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK, the live, late night companion show to CBS's BIG BROTHER, one of television's most addictive and socially engaged reality series.



BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK will feature a curated live feed from inside the BIG BROTHER house for two hours, seven nights a week (12:00-2:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT) for 13 weeks beginning Wednesday, June 26. In addition, BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK telecasts on TVGN will be cross-promoted on-air within the BIG BROTHER broadcasts on the CBS Television Network. BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK previously aired for seven seasons on the premium cable network Showtime.



“BIG BROTHER is one of television’s longest-running reality series with a loyal audience, and we are excited to bring BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK to TVGN where fans can watch all summer long,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media, TVGN. “When the sun goes down and the cameras are still rolling, some of the best reality TV moments come to life, and we expect this season of BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK to deliver more jaw-dropping action available only on TVGN.”



Now entering its 15th season, BIG BROTHER on the CBS Television Network will have a longer edition this summer with the new season premiering on Wednesday, June 26 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). It will be broadcast three nights weekly: Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning July 2); a live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen on Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT, beginning July 3); and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning June 30). The Wednesday live eviction show will move to 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT on July 17.


BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK gives fans of the popular reality series an intimate, late night look at life in the ‘Big Brother House.’ The show features a curated live television feed from inside the house, where nothing is sacred and anything goes.



BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 53 cameras and 97 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the House Guests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining House Guest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.



BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy® Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

CBS also owns Showtime like I said above. I don't think the ownership is the reason why, unless maybe the monies are different.

I think a reason could be that TVGN is part of a basic package while showtime is a higher $$

it is also the channel they run the previews for Survivor on so they maybe trying to boost the network for TV info station!

Props to you Artist. Sorry about that. I will put you in the next one, whether you had anything to do with it or not LOL

And I don't like the move, not that I watched it here anyway. We used to have an east coast feed of that Showtime channel which was fine, then Time Warner removed it so we got feeds at midnight from 3 hours ago. Stupid.

Now they are moving it to a channel that will have to censor for language? Imagine how many cutaways there will be.
