Channel 5 is to drop the nightly Big Brother 2013 live feed earlier than expected, it has emerged, with the last edition now due to air this Sunday.
Earlier this year the broadcaster announced it would air two hours of streaming every night between 7pm and 9pm on digital channel 5*, following continued campaigns from viewers for the 24hr feed to be reinstated.
After the daily streaming drew lower viewing figures than the slots had previously achieved, it was confirmed on Wednesday that it would be dropped from the schedules from Saturday 6th July.
However, in a further blow to Big Brother fans, it now seems the cancellation date has been brought forward, with 5* EPG listings now showing repeats of shows such as My Name Is Earl from next Monday, the 1st of July.
This means the final daily instalment of ‘Live From The House’ will now air on Sunday at 8.00pm.
C5 will continue to broadcast a half hour of post-eviction streaming on Fridays at 11.30pm, following spin-off show Bit On The Side.
