I wish Big Brother Canada 4 was available worldwide, its just that good. However, Big Brother Canada, legally does not have the rights to broadcast its show outside Canadian borders. With the season 4 international house guest “wild card” twist, more international Big Brother fans are also interested in watching the BBCAN4 live feeds so I made this “how to” guide outlining how you can access the official Big Brother Canada website from outside Canada.
Why do I love BBCAN4 so much? The quality of multi-platform production is stellar and the art design is outstanding. The 24/7 live feeds are crystal clear gorgeous in HD and are a real treat to watch. Likewise, the television episodes are excellently produced with exciting, challenging competitions that are fun to watch. Both can be viewed directly at bigbrothercanada.globaltv.com from inside Canada. Here are instructions on how to watch from outside.
As per previous seasons the BBCAN4 24/7 live feeds will be “geo-blocked.” What this means is that if your IP address is outside of Canada, you will not be able to watch. There is a simple work around so fans of Big Brother can watch the BBCAN4 24/7 live feeds, television episodes and website content worldwide.
1.You will need is what is called a VPN (Virtual Personal Network.) This sounds more intimidating than it actually is, a VPN takes 5 minutes tops to configure. Hola, a fantastic app that works with Google Chrome does not work for everyone. I subscribe personally at HMA here.
This is the VPN 100s of my friends and fellow Big Brother Canada fans in the US & abroad used to watch last year. It is CHEAP, FAST, SECURE & has NO LIMITS to the amount of data you can stream and has helped big brother fans successfully access Canadian content for 3 seasons.
2.Follow the HMA instructions to download their dashboard, as shown above. All you do next is sign in and pick any Canadian server from their selection menu. Voila! You now have a Canadian IP address.
Note: HMA also has mobile phone and tablet apps which work great for your convenience!
Why not a FREE VPN? Most free VPNs have data transfer/time limits and are slow and choppy. Free VPNs also have the risk of malware, spyware, adware and viruses. I would rather pay a small monthly fee than lose my hard drive, or have a security risk.
Feel free to comment if you have any questions on #VPN set up specifically for the HMA VPN.
