SEATTLE, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CBS and RealNetworks(R), Inc. , have teamed up for the eighth straight season to offer exclusive 24/7 access to live video feeds inside the Big Brother house. Webcast coverage begins immediately following the premiere of BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART on Tuesday, Feb. 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Coverage from the entire three-month season will be accessible through Real's SuperPass subscription service at http://www.real.com/bigbrother, in addition to the official BIG BROTHER Web site at CBS.com.

"The Internet is a natural extension for traditional television programming, providing consumers with greater access to the content they love and allowing content providers another means of marketing to fans," said Elizabeth Coppinger, vice president of video services for RealNetworks. "With the growing demand for more content from 'after show' sites and the continued popularity of BIG BROTHER, Real's 24/7 access and bonus features encourage greater interaction among fans in real-time."

Following the popularity of last season's BIG BROTHER, fans will once again be offered the opportunity to chat live with Houseguests once they leave. This season, fans will also be able to play online games and watch videos while they tune into the live feed.

The BIG BROTHER subscription service delivers a one-of-a-kind look behind the scenes of the CBS hit show after the cameras stop rolling. The online BIG BROTHER community within SuperPass and on Film.com includes a blog, photo galleries, live feeds into the BIG BROTHER house and show recaps, as well as message boards, commentary, astrological profiles and a regular "Ask Big Brother" question and answer column. Additional BIG BROTHER bonus coverage and Film.com features can be accessed for free at http://www.film.com/bigbrother.
