Big Brother live feeds are an important facet of the show each summer, giving subscribers a chance to see what is going on inside the house – outside of the regularly scheduled episodes.

The live feeds get fans excited each summer, especially since this is the only place to get an unedited view of the conversations between the houseguests. For anyone who only watches the episodes, you are missing a lot.

Ahead of the debut of Big Brother All-Stars 2, there are a lot of questions about the live feeds and exactly how the production team is going to present them this summer.

When do Big Brother live feeds turn on?

This is a trick question here, as the live feeds are already turned on. That happened a while ago as the production team prepared to get the new season started.

Unfortunately, the feeds are getting used as an advertising tool right now and haven’t provided any glimpses inside the house. That might not matter too much, though, as the BB22 cast isn’t playing the game yet.

Luckily, host Julie Chen Moonves did just release a full Big Brother house tour video that showcases all of the changes that have been made ahead of the second installment of All-Stars.

Getting back to the primary intent of the question about when the Big Brother live feeds will get turned on, there are two answers to that particular query.

CBS has announced that this season is going to begin with a live move-in episode. In addition to it taking place on CBS, the show is going to be live-streamed on the feeds as well. This could give different angles to the houseguests entering the house for the first time this summer.

As the Big Brother TV schedule lays out, this is going to be a two-hour premiere where the live feeds continue to be accessible for the subscribers watching at home.

After the two hours – it’s unclear what will happen next.

Big Brother live feeds (UPDATE)

We have now learned that the Big Brother live feeds will begin showing the inside of the house 30 minutes after the West Coast has watched the season premiere.

To be more specific, at 2:30 a.m. ET and 11:30 p.m. PT on the night of August 5, the live feeds will be fully accessible to show off what the cast is up to. That’s when subscribers can tune in to the conversations and really find out which alliances are getting formed out of the gate.


Big Brother All-Stars debuts August 5 at 9/8c on CBS.
