Actually it's available on a lot of cable companies as well. Comcast in Houston has it.

I stand corrected.

 

I was just going by what Julie Chen (??) said last night:

 

"Watch Big Brother After Dark on the TV Guide Channel, available on Dish & Direct TV."

skeeter: That by Julie was what I call advertising for the two DBS companies.  TVGN is available on all TV providers in Central Indiana, except for U-Verse.  I checked TVGN's web site and BBAD is not available on demand / online.  We will try the 48 hour free trial of the BB streams.  

 

Americangame - I do blame CBS/Viacom but I bet that TVGN will carry more unique programming with CBS's involvement, so AT&T should investigate carrying it.  BUT, I'm not holding my breath. Smiley Sad

Right but probably not in time for this season of Big Brother.  Again, I do blame CBS/Viacom but the BBAD move was announced 3 months ago (apparently), so AT&T could have done something before now.

I know how you feel. I was a previous Directv customer. I joined AT&T Uverse because their TV service appeared to be more reliable (e.g. no satellite searches during bad weather) and their price more reasonable than Directv. I was already aware that Uverse did not carry the NFL Sunday Ticket but I was blind sided by the fact that Big Brother After Dark (BBAD) was also going to be a "no show". BBAD forms the foundation for what audiences will see on CBS primetime during the week. Therefore, I have decided to forego watching the Big Brother series this year. If more Big Brother "followers" adopt this attitude CBS and their partners will be forced to return the series back to Showtime, as many of their sponsors depend upon prime time viewers for marketing of their products and services. This is why many day time soap operas (e.g. As the World Turns and Guiding Light) were dropped from CBS. You have to hit them were it hurts, which is in their bank accounts.

I'm very frustrated because for years I didn't have showtime so I got it last year and now I can't watch it. I filled out the reques for the TVGN. Hopefully if enough people request it we will get it

The bigger question is "Who OWNS TVGN?"

 

...and that would be CBS (and isn't that the network BB is own?  I think it is).

 

Moving BBAD shouldn't surprise anyone.  After all, Julie Chen is married to the President & CEO of CBS, Les Moonves.

Probably more and more folks.  CBS obviously did this to generate more interest in TVGN.  There were two shows, last fall that my wife asked me to record - both were on TVGN.  She was   ---  outta luck.  

 

CBS could wind up using TVGN as an overflow channel for sporting events when preempted by other programming or vice versa.  Heck, TVGN could be (just speculating, here) easily rebranded as CBS Sports or CBS Plus, much like what FOX is doing with Speed.

Right but CBS recently aquired the network and I bet it won't stay as TVGN for long.

I'm sorry, while I occassionally watch BBAD, 95% of the time I was asleep long before it came on.  I'm sure it's also cheaper for CBS to broadcast it on TVGN as opposed to Sho but it doesn't help those that want to watch this year.  I'm also sure ratings may have played a part in it as not everyone has Sho and TVGN is more of a basic cable channel.

Yeah but Viacom owns SHO too (no pun intended), so I would think that it would have been cheaper for them to run that instead of movies, where they have to pay residuals..  My wife, who is disabled is up at all hours and was normally awake during the 12 am - 3 am, airing time.  We DVR'd it for fights and their silly games.  I am still deciding on whether or not to pull the trigger on the live feeds.  Especially with my furlough starting next week. Smiley Sad
