Big Brother After Dark moving to TV Guide Network

It will still air at midnight eastern but only for 2 hours instead of 3. I'm not sure how not being on a channel like Showtime will affect editing or censorship or commercials.

and my TV guide channel isn't in HD.....goodbye After Dark, for me.

I'm 90% certain I'm not gonna watch BB this year unless it is in HD. There is just no excuse anymore.

Well, I'll get to watch it from time to time now, as I'm not a Showtime sub. That said, the few times I did see it, it was REALLY boring. Just a bunch of people sitting around BSing. I imagine they will either let the language go (it IS cable after all), or run it on a 7 second delay.

On the HD front, are there ANY other shows left that aren't HD? I agree, it's time. I thought someone said last year that they thought the reason behind it was that it was more difficult to edit an HD show. Is this still the case? There are other real time shows that have multiple pre-recorded "recaps" of the last few days goings on and they are in HD. Also, the BB ripoff show from last season on ABC was in HD. I'm sorry, but if we all have cheap HD cameras availabel on our PHONES, there's no reason any TV show in 2013 shouldn't be in HD.

crap. Hope they don't put it on a long delay in order to blank swearing and the like. Guess we'll see 10x more fish. BBADs allure is the relative lack of editing which makes for a totally different show than the network broadcast.

Maybe they will try to make them watch their language. I think I remember them telling one season they needed to cut down on the profanity & the cast really made an effort. I think language like that breeds group participation & just isn't necessary to hear those kinds of words in most sentences.
Yes, I know I am a prude but I don't use those words in my everyday conversations & my kids don't use them around me. I certainly don't want go hear it coming from my grandchildrens' mouths.

I bet you say that at the beginning of every season but you still end up watching it from start to finish without any real problems...just like the rest of us.

About censorship...we'll probably just see lots of the aquarium with no sound. That seems the be their go to shot when the HG do or say things they don't want us to see.

TW here doesn't carry TGN so no BBAD for me. That's fine, I've watched it for years ( well should say haven't watched it) on SHO2. It's pretty boring.

BBAD really got pretty lame as it went on. After the season of the "taint slap" I don't think I ever saw anything worthy of the 3 hours every night we recorded. I can only guess TVG will be even tamer.

Do they still use RealNetworks for the live feeds? Time to let that go, too.

I remember having to use MacOS 9 compatibility mode in m new MacOS X iMac to watch the feeds one season a looooong time ago. Time for some new technology, BB!

these are web rumors flying around the internets:
  • this season will be in hd
  • live internet feeds hosted by cbs.com, no superpass/real.com
  • all new hg, no returning cast
  • the season will be longer, 100 days
  • julie chen and the talk will film in the house 6/7
  • media day on 6/10
  • hg move in on 6/18
  • hg revealed soon after 6/18
the first commercial is on youtube here

looking forward to a new cast of hg this season, it should be fun!

Looks like they have a new logo this year too.

And man, is it ugly.

Lots of water imagery. Hmmm? Maybe a pool that fits more than 4 people?

I think they do that every year. The logo is different just for the promos before the show starts but then they go back to the standard logo once the show starts.

"Big" announcement was the feeds are going to CBS.com (presumably, RealNetworks has been dropped).

Still a paid service. Now featuring mobile access.

Nothing mentioned about HD.

Does that mean all the other rumors are invalid?

I mostly just listen to BBAD in the background while I'm doing other stuff like work or playing video games so I don't really care if its HD or 4:3 but I have wondered why they do that? Storage capacity? Seems like I've heard that one tossed around a few times even though BB UK is HD. Oh well.

If all of this is true, I'm definitely in this season. I skipped the second Rachel season because I couldn't stand her, came back last season to watch Dan play again, and I'll be in for new HG (and HD!!). Hopefully we won't get Jessie making his yearly cameo this year!!

The move to TVGN will make no difference in what CBS has set for BB. CBS has been increasing censorship every year for the past few years. They sway public opinion of the house guests with their editing. You can bet that the "live feeds" will be cut and censored.

i added tvgn to my channel list the other night, then surfed over to check out the quality. it's terrible, so i removed the channel right away - looks like no bbad for me this year. buried along with the irritating listings scroll, the low quality picture is tiny. guess they'll go to any lengths to try and force a sub of the live feeds and to make an extra buck.

this would've been the first year on sho2 in hd, too bad about the change.

So are you saying that "live" feeds" are pretaped? If they are live, I would think the most it would have is a 7 second delay, for language and/or nudity (being this isn't on SHO any longer).

Yeah, I agree, that the video quality will probably make me not watch this very much, even though now I could. I HATE watching SD on non HD channels.

The only thing I've ever watched on this channel is the Survivor preview and it is always in HORRIBLE SD...I mean even bad for SD bad.

the hollywood reporter posted preview pics of the new house - some very interesting, even if relatively minor, changes (read the captions):

No, they are live, but they either cut to a different camera or cut to "fishies" (not sure if they've done that in Showtime, but I know they do it all the time in the Superpass feeds.)
