Welcome to the Morty's TV Team LFU/TFU Signup for Big Brother USA 19!

Morty’s TV provides real time updates of Reality TV show broadcasts and, during seasons of Big Brother USA and Big Brother Canada, of the Live Feed streams at mortystv.com. 
To facilitate this, Morty’s TV established the Morty’s TV LFU (Live Feed Updaters) , TFU (Twitter/Facebook Updaters) and FFB (Fan Forums Bloggers) Teams.

What is a LFU

LFU Team Members watch the Big Brother USA Live Feeds and post regular updates describing the action in the BB House to the daily Morty's TV Fan Forums LFU Threads.

  • LFUs post to the Daily Thread in the Live Feed Update Forums on the Morty's TV Fan Forums & Chat (tvfanforums.net - Membership is free and no spam ever).
  • TFUs can post updates whenever they want, as often as they want, even when others are updating as well.  Morty simply merges all the updates for a more complete coverage page..  24 hours a day for 3 months is a lot of coverage, so we need as many TFUs  as we can get! 
  • Please note, however, American, Canadian or other, you will need to subscribe to CBS All Access to receive the Live Feeds. 

Sounds Great - I want to register!

What is a TFU?

TFU Team Members watch the Big Brother USA Live Feeds and post regular updates describing the action in the BB House to the Morty’s TV Facebook and Twitter accounts.  

  • It is not necessary to have a Facebook or Twitter account - we use our own accounts and a proprietary web application to publish updates.  Your personal identity will not be used outside the TFU team.
  • TFUs use a shared schedule to ensure TFUs do not post updates at the same time.  24 hours a day for 3 months is a lot of coverage, so we need as many TFUs  as we can get!
  • TFUs also serve as LFUs, posting their TFU updates to the daily LFU theads on the Morty's TV Fan Forums & Chat (tvfanforums.net - Membership is free and no spam ever).
  • Please note, however, American, Canadian or other, you will need to subscribe to CBS All Access to receive the Live Feeds. 

    Sounds Great - I want to register!

What is a FFB

FFB Team Members post a daily or weekly blog post on the Morty's TV Fan Forums (tvfanforums.net - Membership is free and no spam ever), commenting on the events in the Big Brother house.

  • While LFUs and TFUs stick to the facts of what is happening in the house, FFBs get to put it in context, weighing in with their own opinions and stimulating conversation.
  • BFFs can post whenever they want, whether it be daily or weekly or something in between.  Blog posts will be promoted on our Facebook Page and Group, as well as our Twitter stream.
  • Blog posts need to be clean and family friendly, but otherwise, there's no limit on topic.

Sounds Great - I want to register!
