Default Where to watch old series?

I got into Big Brother at the tailend of the C5 series but have seen clips of the old C4 era (BB2 is my fav from what I've seen) and would love to watch it fully, but have no idea where to do so. The C5 ones are easier to find but I'm looking for the C4 versions.

I'm in a similar situation with Strictly where the old series are hard to find. Sad that reality and game shows are so hard to locate old episodes of online, whereas sitcoms and drama dominate every streaming platform and website- can anybody help?

The entire series 6 of BB Uk was on youtube , not sure about the other series.

You might have to try the website Dailymotion or something.

I'm currently watching S7 on YouTube, thus far seems to all be there (even things like BBLB and Big Mouth)

Yeah BB10 is the same, you can see me in the audience of BBLB in one episode when my friend was doing the quiz thing

I don't get why C5 especially and C4 copyright claim old series of BB, like what's the point? If they were on the streaming platforms or DVD/Blu-ray I could understand, as they'd be making money from them, but they have nothing to gain from depriving the world of old EPs...

If anything I reckon they could sell all the old series to a streaming network for some quick £. Some crappy one like BritBox would probably buy them. The old C4 series definitely. Or why not just stick them up on All4 or whatever it's called these days? Maybe there's contractual stuff with Endemol?

Yeah I noticed old BBLB was on there aswell , I've just checked and I think most of the old vintage BB from the channel 4 days seems to be on YouTube. I'm surprised YouTube hasn't taken it all down.

Private message me. I can tell you where to find every season and every episode of BB UK, CBB and international BB. I don't think we're allowed to post it on the forums.

Not great when you're halfway through a series, invested in it then find a few episodes in a row missing. Plus I think the quality is a bit better on this other site I speak of. If anyone would like the link just private message me.

alr so from what i know of there are two ways.

there’s YouTube
- which if you want like every episode while ur in the UK, you
will probably need a VPN but it’s usually worth it

and then there’s VideoBrother
- literally has everything but you’re gonna need an ad blocker because
of lot of… websites will pop up 👍🏾

I couldn't get that one to work at all, even with heavy adblocking the actual videos never played, and ad pop-ups got through.

Sadly one bad thing about a revival is the copyright police will probably become more active again, so perhaps enjoy it before they start trying to remove content.

Of course though considering how reliant BritBox is on archive content from all channels a deal for new series with ITV may see them interested in officially making the archive available once again, though often when it is done through official channels you'll see far more edits etc. to fit around compliance issues etc.

I'm currently rewatching BB7 and there's no way half of it would air these days .
