FOX’s upcoming reality show “Utopia,” which puts a group of strangers together in a compound mostly cut off from the outside world and forces them to
stop being polite and start getting real create a new society, has released some details about the live feeds that viewers can access.
According to the official site, Friday, Aug. 29 is “day one” for the cast members, which means live feeds debut more than a week before the TV series premieres. In addition, users can sign up for either free or premium “passports” to monitor the activity.
The differences are spelled out on the site — it looks like the main difference is that free viewers have limited access to two streams, while premium users have 24/7 access to four streams. Premium users’ experience will also be ad-free, but both free and premium users will be able to vote for which Utopians enter and exit the society.
The price is not quoted; a spokesperson from FOX tells Zap2it it will be announced in the next couple of days. We were also told the cast is expected to be announced next week.
Free passport sign-up is available now. “Utopia” premieres Sunday, Sept. 7 before moving to Tuesdays and Fridays on Sept. 9 and 12, all at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
