Microsoft Surface Becomes The Official Tablet For Big Brother 2014 Show

Big Brother is a popular reality television show in the UK. The show follows a number of contestants, known as housemates, who are isolated from the outside world for an extended period of time in a custom built House. Each week, one of the housemates is evicted by a public vote, with the last housemate remaining winning a cash prize. Channel 5 which airs the show has agreed on a product placement deal with Microsoft for Big Brother 2014: Power Trip. Microsoft Surface will be seen throughout the show as housemates will be making their nominations on Surface tablets. Also, the contestants will also complete its weekly shopping lists on the Microsoft’s flagship mobile devices as part this deal.

BBSpy reports that further details about how the tablet nominations will work have yet to be confirmed.

      Is it very good or is it crappy? It can’t be both.

        I think the show is definitely very crappy, but nonetheless, because it is so trashy, it just has to be entertaining.

    Well, I guess you could say that Surface was the “Unofficial Tablet” for the TV show “Marvels Agent of SHIELD” as it was used with black tape over the Start button.

    I bought my teenage daughter a Surface last Christmas, she traded it in yesterday and bought an iPad. It doesn’t matter how good the Surface is, unfortunately it doesn’t have the ‘cool factor’ in her eyes and theres the mountain that is yet to be climbed where teenagers are concerned.
