CBS will charge for access to Big Brother 2 live video streams; houseguests moved in last Sunday.
In a brilliant move that could quite possibly alienate Big Brother 2‘s primary–and only remaining–audience, CBS is planning to charge for access to the live video streams broadcast over the web. A free trial will last until Sunday, when those who want to watch the live feeds will have to pay for an as-yet-unpriced subscription to watch during the rest of the season.
+ update: The New York Times reported today that the houseguests moved in on Sunday and have thus already been interacting with each other. Also, an executive producer tells the Times that this year the show “is all about story,” so like other reality TV shows, events could be shown out of order to maintain that episode’s story arc.
