Now in order to vote for new people, or banishment of the current people, you have to sign up for a passport on utopiatv.com. There’s two passport choices, the free one, or the premium. The free passport lets you watch live streams (only two of the five), votes, some video clips, and all the news. The premium passport, which is $4.99/month, gives you all the live streams, video clips, votes, and other content not currently specified on the FAQs page. I currently have the free passport, and am pretty happy with it so far. It gives me what I want, and doesn’t force me into things I don’t need.
Another fun part of Utopia is that you can still audition for this show. They are constantly looking for new people to send to Utopia, to replace those who have been banished, or to just generally throw a cog in the wheels of the current set up. If you’re into that sort of thing, you need a video, current picture to fill out the application form, meet the requirements, and then wait. If any of you guys choose to do this, let us know so we can root for our fellow nerd!
All in all, I’m pretty excited to watch this new reality show. Granted, I’m already a reality show junkie, but this one gives me higher hopes than most. I think the best part of Utopia, and the true genius behind it, is that these people are not doing it for the money. They are purely doing it for the experience (and possible fame). They are coming together to build a new society and hopefully prove that if we ever do end up in a post apocalyptic world, we can and will prevail.
