BB18 – How to Subscribe to the 24/7 Live Feeds from Canada

Those rascally rabbits at the networks sure don’t make things easy for us international Big Brother fans to watch the CBS BB17 24/7 live feeds, but don’t be dismayed as there is a simple solution to the country blocking. Below is a tutorial how to order your feeds from Canada and watch seamlessly and safely with a protected VPN. What is a VPN? A VPN is a “Virtual Private Network,” and masks where you are browsing from. To watch the live feeds, you will set your VPN to browse from the United States as CBS has geocached the All-Access feature, limiting to US viewers only.

NOTE: hola and other free VPN services do NOT work.


Buy an American Express Gift Card (Canadian) – These can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart, Circle K, 7-11, and most other major gas stations. NOTE: The circled 4 digits is your security number (CVV.) ***IT MUST BE AN AMEX GIFT CARD*** It might take a full hour for your gift card to be activated, this happened to myself.

NOTE: You can use ANY Canadian credit card to purchase your VPN below, the AMEX gift card is for purchasing the CBS live feed subscription only.


Subscribe to a safe and secure VPN. I personally subscribe to HMA at the link below and have been a subscriber for over 4 years now. It is safe, it is secure, it is fast and it is relatively cheap. You can use it to watch your live feeds, international sports and other programming. HMA also has an easy to use app for your tablet and mobile; both Apple and Android.


Choose your favorite Big Brother blogger to purchase your live feed subscription from. This is your way of saying, “Thanks” for staying up 24/7 and eating an unnatural amount of Doritos just so you yourself can go to work and have a life. We bloggers update you, provide you pretty photos and most importantly the information the networks try so desperately to hide. I myself am located in Canada so do not sell the BB18 live feed subscriptions.

Set your VPN country to “USA” and use your AMEX gift card to purchase using ANY address within the United States.I like to have fun with this, for example last year I used the NY Times Square Toys R Us. Literally ANY address works so go Google.

Voila! You should be able to sign in and see the feeds like the image on top of this post. For help, tweet me at @BBArchive or @Catvanzyl

    This worked last year but it is not working now. I am using HMA and it is still finding me to be in Canada even though I am using US IP addresses.

      This works 100%, it is what I am using now personally as are a large number of my friends. Please sign out of HMA clear all your browser information and then re-sign into HMA ensuring it says you are showing as from the USA before going to CBS.

    I signed up for the live feeds with a US address and an prepaid AMEX Card. I wasn’t able to get any of the pre-season interviews or watch old season of BB on CBS UNTIL I subscribed to “Unblock-us” and set up my Ethernet with their DNS codes.
    The issue I’m having now is the live feeds won’t load, I’m getting this message: “the selected content has not started yet”. I believe I had this same issue last year but I cannot remember how I fixed it. Not sure if it has something to do with my Flash player browser settings
    Is anyone else experiencing this, have suggestions or a fix for it?

      Are you using the HMA VPN recomended above. The issue you are having is when people use the free VPNs like Hola which will no longer work, CBS has found a way to block that.

    I’m not using the VPN HMA, I prefer DNS redirection so I’m using Unblock-us.
    It works because I didn’t have access to past seasons or the interviews until I got set up with Unblock-us
    My issue is flash player or IE settings…. just wondering what the fix is

      I apologize, I don’t know. I only know how to help via using how I watch the BB18 feeds, via the HMA VPN. I did try to duplicate your error using a free service extension on my browser and got the exact same message using Hola. My blog and instructions outline how I have watched the BBUSA feeds since the CBS changeover successfully from Canada. The only way I personally know works without fail is with the HMA VPN.

    no problem, thank you for the reply 🙂

    Thanks for details on how to do this! Do you know if it affects Netflix Canada viewing at all? I used to use a redirect server last year for US neflix but since the blockage I watch Canadian Netflix. Just wouldn’t want this to think I’m a us address and block my Canadian Netflix now.
