Hi all, while I personally don't plan on watching Big Brother Canada, which started on Wednesday, I thought I'd share with you my technique for watching the episodes and live feeds online since I live outside Canada and the video on the site is restricted to Canada only. The feeds are FREE (ad supported) so for those tight on cash its a way to enjoy the Big Brother experience and save a few $$. Big Brother Canada will last about 10 weeks.
I use a site - plugin called Hola to enable my computer / browser (in my case I am using firefox but it works with Chrome and I believe IE as well) to move about the Canadian web page for Big Brother Canada. My instructions are for someone using Windows 7 as well - your mileage may vary with other operating systems. But Hola has options for MANY operating systems on their site. Without Hola I get a message telling me the content is restricted when I try to view videos.
Here are the 'simple' steps. I'm not offering tech support - just wanted to pass this on for those with the urge to see whats going on in the Great White North on its second season of Big Brother.
Step 1 - get Hola via this link Sign Up For Hola.
Step 2 - once you have signed up - you can add the Slice.ca unblocking rule via this link: Unblock Slice.ca.
Step 3 - Finally if you aren't already on the site via the step above - you should be able to now go to the following and start watching videos including the episodes and the free live feeds: Big Brother Canada Official Site.
By the way, Hola is a great little way to watch LOADS of content that is normally restricted by region. I used it last year to watch Big Brother Austrailia as well.
On Big Brother 16 - casting continues - you can see all open casting calls listed here: Big Brother Casting Calls.
