It is time for the first ever US edition of Celebrity Big Brother 2018, and fans of the cult reality TV show are excited to find out how they can unblock Celebrity Big Brother online.

In 2018, for the first time ever, US celebrities will get locked up in the rat cage that is the Big Brother house. The show will force celebrities to use a mix of strategy, social interaction – and good old fashioned psychological survival skills – as they compete for the title of “best houseguest”.

Watch Celebrity Big Brother From Anywhere

Sadly for people who live outside of the US, the first ever US Celebrity Big Brother is geo-restricted to the US only. This means you will need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to stream Celebrity Big Brother online live.

A VPN for Celebrity Big Brother US allows anybody, anywhere, to pretend to be in the US. This is achieved by connecting to a VPN server in the USA. Doing so, lets the VPN subscriber watch the blocked streams of Celebrity Big Brother from any country around the globe.

When is Celebrity Big Brother US?

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off on Wednesday, February 7, at 8 PM ET. The show will have a three-night premiere on CBS, with shows airing at 8 PM ET on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Here is the full running order of Celebrity Big Brother shows (all times are ET): 

Every Wednesday: Feb 7 | Feb 14 | Feb 21

  • 8-9 p.m. Premiere

Where Can I Watch Celebrity Big Brother US?

The US edition of Celebrity Big Brother will be showing on CBS. To watch the shows online you have two options. The first way is to head over to CBS All Access. CBS All Access is only available in the US and you will need a valid US ZIP Code to sign up. For this reason, you will need to be connected to a US VPN server to subscribe to CBS All Access. CBS All Access costs $5.99 per month.

How to unblock Celebrity Big Brother US with a VPN

Getting to watch CBB online with a VPN is incredibly easy. To do so, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Select a fast VPN for streaming. To watch Celebrity Big Brother US on CBS we recommend ExpressVPN because it has super fast servers for streaming video in HD.
  2. Click through to your preferred VPN’s website and subscribe to the service.
  3. Download the VPN software.
  4. Install the VPN on your device. Make sure you download the correct VPN client for your device.
  5. Log into your VPN using the credentials you entered when you subscribed
  6. Connect to a VPN server in the US.
  7. Head over to CBS All Access and watch CBB!

Remember: A VPN uses military-grade encryption to protect your privacy. When connected to a VPN, your ISP cannot tell what you are doing online. This digital privacy permits VPN users to do anything they want online – including watching geo-restricted streams.

BestVPN.com does not condone copyright infringement. While we are aware that VPNs can be used to spoof your location to another country, and thus overcome geo-restrictions, their primary purpose is to provide you with online security and privacy. First and foremost, this is why we recommend using a VPN.

What to Expect From Celebrity Big Brother

You would think that being locked in a fishbowl surrounded by cameras and microphones 24 hours a day would be enough excitement. However, to make things more thrilling the show’s creators will throw various “surprises” at the celebrities during their month-long trial.

This is how CBS is describing the show:

“Celebrity Big Brother is the first celebrity edition of reality hit Big Brother and follows a group of celebrities living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving a grand prize.”

A video has been released that shows the interior of the house, and suffice to say that it is looking like a pretty amazing place to be locked up. You will need a VPN to watch the free preview though because it is geo-restricted for US residents only.
