Default Big Brother 14 (no spoilers see other thread)

Starts soon. Why don't we get to see "Big Brother After Dark"? It is carried by The Global Reality Channel, which I believe is owned by Shaw. Yet, this channel isn't carried by Shaw. So frustrating for Big Brother fans. This addition to the season has been available for years, but not for us, unless we buy a subscription for online viewing

You know I was excited about having Global Reality TV last year to watch after dark. But that excitement waned pretty quickly. You really really realize how effing boring it is/ they are. It's a live three hours, mostly of watching the HGs cook dinner, sit in the backyard, and sleep. They know they are on TV for the three hours as well so there's nothing "candid" about it. It's BORING with a capital B. Plus, unlike the live feeds, you don't have any control over which camera to watch, only what the prodcuers want you to watch.

Big Brother after Dark is a separate program, which is carried on Showtime in the U.S. and the Global Reality Channel in Canada. Although it's one of the Shaw family of channels, it isn't carried on Shaw Cable or Shaw Direct. Therefore, when Big Brother after Dark starts, Shaw customers won't see it.

For whatever reason, not too many providers offer Global Reality.

BB after Dark is on some Canadian channel called Slice, a channel I actually have. I already created a series recording.

I'm not sure if i like the premise of 4 returning players, playing for their own prize. Not sure how that will work or if it's going to fly with the fans.
Anyone know if BB will finally air in HD??

I didn't like last season since half the contestants were recycled and the other half were dumb.
