VANCOUVER – Wall-to-wall cameras and microphones are just not enough for the first-ever Big Brother Canada reality series, to bow here on February 27.

Insight Productions and broadcaster Shaw Media tapped digital producer Secret Location to create a free 24 hour live stream with social engagement to allow viewers to eavesdrop on and interact with the strangers-living-together reality series.
The multi-platform offering will also enable viewers to vote on twists and turns, interact with the competitors and play a Big Brother Canada Power Play game for points and prizes.
Big Brother Canada fans will have a say in determining house-guests rewards and punishment, the food in the house and whether to save a life or settle on an eviction.
The BigbrotherCanada.ca live streaming site will not be available to American users because of geo-gating.
While sister channel Global Television airs CBS' Big Brother series here, Shaw Media's Slice channel will air the first Canadian installment of Endemol’s global franchise.
Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week on Slice, and Big Brother Canada After Dark will air seven days a week late night.
Survivor: San Juan del Sur premieres Wednesday, September 24, 2014 8/7C on CBS
The Amazing Race 25 premieres Friday, September 26, 2014 8/7C on CBS

I think we all know we have "ways around" the live feed issue for  the Americans here that want to watch BB Canada..

And with that being the case I believe we would  need to get a few things clarified.

Please add suggestions and oppositions to help us figure out  how to make the best out of our FIRST BB Canada Season! :tup:

1) Those that want to update, will we be allowed to post the updates here on RFF with screen caps from what ever source we chose to use?

2) Since  we are not held by the restrains of CBS and the live feeds policing in the past will we be able to post videos?

3) if the answer to 2 is yes then i would suggest a time limit on some of the "live feed captured video to be no longer than a few minutes. this way it's only the important stuff

4) We most likely will have a separate thread for ALL LEGAL YouTube videos that are released along with the credit links to them
zero, zilch, nada, nothing!

Good questions ugot!! I would say though  let's hold off on all this for now until we get more info.

The bottom line is that no one (esp RFF) wants to be attacked for copyright violations, so let's see what we can do as the time gets closer and we have more info.......

I went driving the other day by my school and the location showing up on the map is actually a Islamic Centre. What I believe could be the BB complex could be the building in the far back of 'Good News Assembly of God' plaza next to the Islamic Centre.

details on how to get tickets for the first 4 live evictions were put online yesterday:

Email bbcaudience@insighttv.com with the subject line: Big Brother Canada Tickets for [Date Requested]
Include your name, email address, phone number & number of tickets requested in the body of your email.
Please note that we cannot guarantee tickets, you must be able to travel to the Greater Toronto Area and the minimum age is 11.

http://t.co/YidfKc8t

The first eviction is supposed to be on Feb.28... so someone gets out pretty early unless they enter the house prior to the 27th.

I already put a request for all 4 of the available dates.

Just received my email detailing that I did not secure a ticket for the 1st Big Brother Canada Live Eviction, but it did tell me how to attend the RUSH LINE to have a chance for any unclaimed tickets - but most important, it revealed where the location of the Big Brother house is!

5101 Orbitor Drive Mississauga, Ontario!



Well here is the rest of the email and information concerning RUSH LINES!

Quote
Audience tickets are no longer available for the date requested.

We would like to invite you to join our RUSH LINE on the date you requested tickets. At 6:30pm, all unclaimed tickets will be distributed to RUSH LINE guests, on a first come, first serve basis.

PLEASE NOTE: Attending the RUSH LINE does not guarantee entrance to the studio audience.

All details listed are confidential and not to be re-purposed or shared (Such as the location of the studio).

The Big Brother Canada house is located at Orbitor Studios, 5101 Orbitor Drive, Mississauga, ON, L4W 5R8.
Rush Line will open at 4:00pm and unclaimed tickets will be distributed to RUSH LINE guests when the box office closes at 6:30pm.

Good luck to @murtzjaffer while he takes a shot at playing the BB game in Big Brother Canada's Media Day!

Wow - no house guests from Quebec...
2nd largest province by population and they couldn't find one interesting person to represent?

The time of two solitudes is definitely not finished..

I think a lot of the ways they have things set up is more geared towards BBUK styles. So i think some of the comps won't be as big and challenging as we are use to with the USA Version.

So we now know the house guests and their bios.

My question is do the house guests get to read the bios of the other house guests on the internet?

Wouldn't that destroy the strategy of some of the house guests?
