I wish Big Brother Canada 5 was available worldwide, its just that good. As the franchise grows in popularity, more international Big Brother fans are interested in watching BBCAN5. I made this “how to” guide outlining how Big Brother fans can access the official Big Brother Canada website from outside Canada. These instructions are “tried and true,” and have worked to successfully allow fans from the USA and worldwide to watch Big Brother Canada since season 1.
Why do I love BBCAN5 so much? The quality of multi-platform production is stellar and the art design is outstanding. The house itself is exquisitely designed with intricate detail that has been a treat for live feed viewers. The 24/7 live feeds are crystal clear gorgeous in HD and are free to watch without a paid subscription. Likewise, the television episodes are excellently produced with exciting, challenging competitions that are original and ground breaking. All content can be viewed directly at bigbrothercanada.globaltv.com from inside Canada. Here are instructions on how to watch internationally.
As per previous seasons the BBCAN5 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 BBCAN5 24/7 live feeds, television episodes and website content worldwide. Essentially you will need to make it seem as if your IP address is Canadian.
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. I subscribe personally at HMA at this link: HMA safe VPN.
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.
