Big Brother Canada 5 premiered last night, March 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and continues to air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global TV and if you’re interested in another potentially great season then check out the details on how you can watch from US with both episodes and the Feeds.
BBCAN5 has three episodes a week, just like BBUS, with this season’s schedule on Mondays (9/8c), Wednesdays (9/8c), and Thursdays (8/7c) with the “live” evictions. BBCAN tapes their live shows early so it always ends up leaking in advance. You’d think after all these seasons under their belt they’d be ready to make “live” actually live TV, but not so far.
Live Feeds should be up and running soon after the premiere, after Thursday’s show, then they’ll be going 24/7 except during similar downtimes to what you get with BBUS’s Feeds.
How To Watch Big Brother Canada From The US:
Since it is Big Brother Canada it’s not going to be on regular US television, but it’s still really easy to watch along with live episodes and the Feeds. If you have a Roku device then you can add the CanadaTV channel ($1.99/mo) and tune in there on your TV. It’s what I used all last season and worked great. There are also free options with streaming TV sites and we’ll be sharing links as they’re available.
When it comes to the Feeds those are free but commercial supported and georestricted to Canada. Now you don’t actually have to be in Canada, you just have to fool the website into thinking you’re in Canada. VPNs will let you set your location as Canada then you just hop on to the Global website for Feeds and watch but will generally cost money. There are peer-to-peer options that could be free but may offer security risks, your mileage may vary.
We’d also highly recommend checking out BBViewer (free) which will hopefully again work for US/international fans and let you transparently fix the georestrictions.
