Big Brother After Dark - No longer on Showtime. It's on TVGN! :(

Smiley Mad Smiley Sad Just found out, for this season of Big Brother, BB After Dark will no longer be on SHO2.  instead it will be carried on the TV Guide Network.  And of course, U-Verse does not carry TVGN.  Now I vividly recall quite a few of the fanboys announcing in the past, that we don't need TVGN, since we already have a "Guide."  Unfortunately more and more programming is coming to TVGN, since CBS bought the channel.  I will do a channel request but for this season, it will do no good as the show starts in in 12 days. Smiley Mad Smiley Sad  That blows, I may have to buy the online access - but will see how the furlough "works" out, at work. Can you tell, I'm mad?

I only occasionally watch BB After Dark as I'm typically sound asleep when it's on.  Not sure what CBS is doing moving it yo TVGN but IMO it's a dumb move.  Unless they are trying to make people pay for the streaming feed.

CBS now owns TVGN, so they must be trying to increase the channel's content.  They also have streaming content, so BBAD may be available online, there too.  I also now wonder if Showtime paid CBS for BBAD or vice versa?

 

My wife (who is disabled and a night owl) watched BBAD a lot plus we recorded it nightly, in case there was good stuff (i.e. the whole "and that's what she said" schtick from the producers, 2 yaers ago)..  I will miss BBAD and that is omne reason that I went with U300, back in 2008.

CBS owns Showtime as well. 

 

Personally, I don't think I want to watch BBAD if it's on "basic cable" because it will likely be censored. I don't need to hear "bleeps" or silence anytime the houseguests curse, which if history is correct, will be frequently.

Need TVGN on UVerse to watch Big Brother After Dark this summer

What do we have to do to get TVGN on Uverse.  I NEED MY Big Brother After Dark, and I don't want to be in the 15% of the US that doesn't get to watch it.  HELP

I've been holding off until after summer to downgrade my Uverse package. I enjoy recording BBAD. Guess there is nothing holding me back now.

Pray?  You could use the Channel Request website - see this thread.  But good luck, folks have most likely requested RFD and Hallmark but AT&T hasn't given us any love.

"I may have to buy the online access" - what does that mean?  Do you mean you can purchase After Dark online from CBS?  If so, will my wife and I be able to watch it on our separate computers and/or tablets?

Thanks!

TVGuide and CBS are part of Viacom so i guess when the contracts come up again the channel can be added same way Uverse struck the deal with Disney/ESPN to that add Disney Junior .

Big Brother After dark simply shows one camera feed of the 4 feeds being shown on the online stream (the 'live feeds').  You can get the live feeds for under 30 dollars for the entire season and then watch them via your computer, tablet, and smart phones. 

 

Sucks that TVGN is not on ATT uvers but by signing up you can still see the feeds - and there is a DVR like feature that allows you to go back to any point - so you can get up in the morning and re-watch what went on while you slept.

 

Hope that helps!

Your blame shouldn't lie with AT&T it should be with Viacom. They own all three channels Big Brother airs on (CBS, SHowtime, and TVGN. This year they decided to show bbad on TVGN instead of Showtime like they have in previous years.

If people would do their HOMEWORK, they would find out that TV Guide Network is ONLY on Dish and DirectTV.

 

....oh wait, they said that at the end of Big Brother.  Smiley Frustrated
