How To Watch BB Canada From Outside Canada

Recommended Posts

Big Brother airs on Canda's Global TV on Mondays (9pm), Wednesdays (9pm) and Thursdays (8pm).  Subscribers to GlobalTV can watch live on the Global TV network or at http://globaltv.com/watchlive/.


To watch the Big Brother Canada show, outside of Canada as it airs, go to: http://videobrother.net/  If you live in Canada, or use a proxy, just go to: http://globaltv.com/watchlive


If you use any of these or similar sites, do it with caution, there may be prompts to update your video player, Flash, Java, or Silverlight, Do Not Do It!!!! You can watch everything without installing anything new; these prompts may try to install unwanted software or malware.


The live feeds are free, but are blocked to viewers outside of Canada.  To get around this, you can use a proxy service. I recommend a browser plug-in called Hoxx VPN, in addition to Hoxx,  there's Geoproxy VPN, www.comnetorgco.com. The Hoxx VPN offers one week free, no credit card required. 


The BBViewer Live Feed app from Liquid8 has in the past has simulstreamed the broadcast episodes and the BB Canada live feeds to anywhere. The BB Viewer app now supports both BB Canada and BB USA in one package, as well as archives of past seasons.   You can get the latest BB Viewer app from Liquid8 here: http://m1h.us/bbgoodies

Greetings Big Brother Fan,


This guide will explain how to install the BBViewer by Liquid8d.


What is the BBViewer and why do I need it?


BBViewer is an alternate viewer application to watch the Big Brother live feeds. For US viewers that want to watch the free Big Brother Canada live feeds, the BBViewer allows you to watch the live feeds, and the TV broadcasts without a browser, which means no GeoBlocking, the process that blocks you from watching content from other countries. The BBViewer can be set to always be on top, so you won't miss a moment. With the BBViewer, you can take screenshots to share with friends and post in the TVFanforums.net.


Where do I Get It?

To make sure you get a legit copy, and the latest version, always go to http://goodiesfor.me/bigbrother/.


How Much Does it Cost

The Viewer is free, and the Big Brother Canada live feeds are free. The Big Brother US feeds require a subscription to CBS ALL ACCESS.



What is this crap about needing Adobe Air?

Adobe Air is a platform programmers can write apps on, like Google has an app platform, and Windows 10 has it's own app platform built in.  You may already have Adobe Air on your computer, but it's probably outdated.  Go to https://get.adobe.com/air/ to download it and install it.  If you already have it, this will update it. 


Is it Safe?

Yes!  The program contains no viruses or spyware.  Liquid8d has an excellent reputation and has been providing us with Big Brother live feed viewers for years, without any problems.


When you start to install the BBViewer, you might see this notice:


This is only shown to you because the author of the software is not recognized by MicroSoft. Click the link that says "More info," and you'll be offered the option of "Run anyway."


Click "Run anyway" and the installation process will begin.



Next, you'll need to select the provider. From the upper left corner menu bar, select "File," then select "Videos."

To watch Big Brother Canada live feeds, from the providers list, select "BBViewer by liquid8d" then select "Big Brother Canada" from the second menu.


On the next screen, select "Live Feeds"  and "Big Brother Live Feeds" to watch the feeds.

Note the third option, "Live" this is where you can select "Global TV" and watch live TV, including the TV broadcasts of Big Brother Canada.


Let's assume you are using BBViewer just to watch the live feeds, it's very easy to do.  Once you've set things up, when you launch BBViewer you'll get Feed #1



When you see an important moment in BB history, you can bookmark it, and share it with others, and use the bookmarks others have saved.



At various times BB will switch the feeds around, and the BBViewer can not automatically compensate for this.  If you have difficulty getting the feeds,  you may need to open/close the viewer or you can go to File->Videos, Refresh Providers, then load BBCAN Live Feeds again.

You can use VPN, or virtual private networks, to hide your real IP address and appear online using an IP address from a different country. Follow the instructions below to unblock Canadian TV channels overseas using VPN:

  1. First of all, sign up with a VPN service. Make sure that whichever VPN service provider you end up registering with has multiple VPN servers in Canada.
  2. Now that you have created your VPN account, download and install the VPN app from the VPN provider’s website.
  3. Launch the app and connect to a VPN server in the Canada.
  4. You now appear to be browsing the web using an Canadian IP address.
  5. This approach allows you to unblock all Canadian channels anywhere overseas including Shomi, CraveTV, and CBC.
