Big Brother, which is back for its 18th season starting Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern on CBS, is unlike many other current reality shows. Besides the fact that houseguests are locked up in a themed house with no access to the outside world, they are also mic-ed up and followed by 87 high-definition cameras

But this isn't just for producers to find the best moments to broadcast on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays — viewers are able to watch any member of the cast in any room of the house from any angle at any time (say that 10 times fast). 

Still not impressed? If you so please, you can even watch four rooms at once.

How to get the live feed

Fans must subscribe to CBS All Access for $5.99 a month. After that, starting on Thursday at 10 p.m. Eastern, viewers can watch the feed online at or on mobile or tablet through either a browser or the CBS App for iOS, Android or Windows 10. Other options include Roku players, Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV or Xbox 360.

Other perks of CBS All Access

With a subscription comes a weekly web series hosted by seasons 11 and 13 contestant Jeff Schroeder, entitled Big Brother After Show, starting on July 1. This will include houseguest interviews and question-and-answer sessions. 

In addition to the current season, subscribers are also able to watch any episode from all of the previous seasons of the show. 

In the past, live feeds have captured everything from fan-favorite makeout sessions (and more), to derogatory remarks, to fights and game-changing competitions (that are aired at a later date).

So, if you want an unfiltered view of what your favorite houseguests are up to in addition to the three hours broadcasted on national TV, the $5.99/month might just be worth it.
