Big Brother Season 24’s premiere date isn’t that far off, and fans have a lot of questions about what to expect in the upcoming season. One thing Paramount+ subscribers and other fans will no longer need to worry about, however, is what’s going on when it comes to the premiere. CBS has confirmed a major detail about the reality series’ return, and it’s some great news.
The latest CBS release regarding Big Brother Season 24 has confirmed that the premiere on Wednesday, July 6 will be a live move-in episode. This means that the audience in the Eastern Time Zone will get to see the Houseguests enter the Big Brother house for the first time. Those living in Pacific Standard Time will watch on a delay, but that’s something that those in PST should be used to be now.
Now that it’s known that Big Brother Season 24 will have a live move-in special, we can move on to wondering when the live feeds will turn on after the 90-minute premiere. Even when Big Brother does a live move-in, live feeds often don’t turn on until the West Coast broadcast of the premiere concludes. That creates at least a three-hour gap between the last live look at the Houseguests and the next time they’re seen.Overall, it would be better than waiting for days for the live feeds to turn on like fans did during Celebrity Big Brother Season 3. It’s also worth noting that the live move-in is relatively new to the flagship series and first happened in Season 22. Before that, it was introduced as a feature during the short-lived Paramount+ spinoff Big Brother OTT which offered unprecedented live feeds access.
