CORRECTION to this post BBlite has nothing to do with Real player it’s a stand alone entity
Available for download during the week of the premiere. (Real has not been cooperating with us as much as they originally indicated)
Real player is releasing a ton of Awesome Live Feed Features this year, it’ll completely change the way we watch the feeds. Very Exciting and Very Cool. For now we are sworn to secrecy but what we can tell you is this. Firstly they are offering a ‘Lite’ version to the BB13 Live Feeds which sits outside your web browser. Basically this is was I’ve wanted on the Live Feeds from the get go, reading through the features is a pretty much my wishlist, Thanks REAL! Everything looks streamlined, a big improvement over what they were offering last year.
I’m more excited for Big Brother this year then ever before thanks to the amazing new features coming out for the Live Feeds it’s going to be a great season. Lets just hope the BB13 casting team has some solid prospects.
The new player For Big Brother 2011 will be available for download in June.
