Big Brother 11 will have a full 24-hour-a-day live feed, it has been confirmed.

Channel 4 has announced that full live coverage of the final series of the reality show will be available online through its website for a "small fee".

Viewers can pay 49p for a day pass, £1.99 for a week pass and £14.99 for a season pass for the whole 13-week show, which begins on June 9.

Channel 4 commissioning editor David Williams said: "Years ago streaming online was less popular due to the limitations of technology, however now we know that the vast majority of fans will have access to broadband and are very active online.

"This is a great way of Channel 4 giving the fans the all-access action that they want, and thanking them for following the show for the past 11 years."

The broadcaster will also be giving away 1,000 free season passes for the feed to the first people who register on the site from Tuesday, June 8 at 7pm.

Live feed from the house will be delayed by 15 minutes for legal and compliance reasons and individuals registering for the site must be over the age of 16. Currently, content can also only be viewed in the UK by UK residents.

There will also be live streaming on TV in the afternoons on E4 and overnight on E4 and Channel 4, in a similar fashion to Celebrity Big Brother 7.

The round-the-clock coverage was axed in 2008, leading to protests from many fans of the show.
