    Yup, we'll have a similar forum, although we're still discussing the structure.

    There won't really be a need for a "TV show" forum this time since everyone will find out everything at the same time.

    Here's the official press release: The highlights:
    • The official name is BB Over The Top; the summer TV editions will continue the same numbering (19, 20, etc.)
    • The season is "only" 10 weeks long, and the grand prize is only $250,000
    • Besides the feeds, there will be only one "episode" each week for the live evictions.
    • Allegedly, we will see ALL competitions and ceremonies live as they happen.
    • Fans will have a lot more chances to interact with the HGs, and impact the game with the usual votes, etc.
    • Not in the release, but supposedly it will be an all-newbie cast with no returnees. We'll see.

    New Digital Edition of the Hit Series Will Bring Fans All-New Elements Designed for Multi-platform Audiences

    September 1, 2016 - CBS Interactive today announced the official title and premiere date for the upcoming digital edition of BIG BROTHER. Developed exclusively for CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, BIG BROTHER: OVER THE TOP will begin streaming live on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT.

    "We are very excited to embark on this new adventure for BIG BROTHER," said Executive Producer Allison Grodner. With the unique streaming format, not only will viewers get to see everything play out live, including ceremonies and competitions, but the audience will also participate in the show like never before.

    CBS All Access put out an email today saying that if you want to go AD Free, you will pay $9.99 a month. If you wish to stay the same at $5.99 a month, I guess ADs will continue to interrupt the shows.

    I wonder what this new pricing means for this streaming show.

    Only one episode a week? So what if people (like myself) don't have time to sit in front of the feeds all the time and want the full TV-viewing experience still? Are we SOL?

    I can't say this really excites me, I was hoping to be able to watch 3 episodes a week like I normally do now, and forget all about the live feeds. If I can't do that, I might just skip this season and consider it non-canon.

    I'm surprised they aren't doing a nightly recap show. Maybe they're just expecting Rob Cesternino to do it for them?

    I would love a BB BOTS type show to pop up maybe where the interview shows are now. Oh, dear...just had a vision of Jeff hosting. I've gone blind.

    $5.99 a month AND watch commercials..I don't think so.

    I thought advertising on commercials brought in big bucks! I already pay through the nose for cable TV!

    What's wrong with this picture? Somebody's getting rich.

    That's the problem with any "extra" type show they come up with -- we get Jeff hosting it.
