Have you ever said this to someone or heard this for yourself that if watching shows were a paid job, you would be super rich? Well, this may have seemed more like a sarcastic joke, but with changing times, this is a reality. Yes, you read it right, a TV company based in the UK, Italy, and Ireland if offering a chance to win over 32 lakhs ( 35,000 euros) by just watching your favorite shows for a year.
NOW TV is looking for one person who can do this for them and apart from the huge amount, they are also giving away a NOW TV smart stick and 12 months of NOW TV passes. As of now, the offer is valid only for the residents of UK.
Some of the shows listed on the site include The Handmaid’s Tale, Big Little Lies, True Detective, Band of Brothers, The Walking Dead, The Sopranos among others.
“Our research found one in seven Brits spend their holiday catching up on telly and 40 percent say TV helps them escape and relax, so in the depths of winter, we wanted to take duvet days to another level with the first ever TV streaming sabbatical,” Emma Quartly, Marketing Director at NOW TV said and hence they came up with such a lucrative offer.
To enter the contest, participants must send in their video or photo in a post telling why they deserve to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Entries can be submitted via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or even by mailing the streaming services.
A panel of judges, including comedian Joel Dommett, will then pick their favorite entry. The winner will then be entitled to a monthly installment starting March 2019 and ending in February 2020. Some quirky entries that are doing rounds on the social media are really worth your attention
How about the chance to win £35,000 to watch Box Sets for an entire year? We’re serious, just ask @joeldommett! 🤑

@nowtv as a new single mother on maternity leave and the brink of redundancy from my full time job. With uncertain times ahead I think a #boxsetsabbatical is just what me and my daughter need. As you can see she would be the perfect partner for the job. pic.twitter.com/arXRFPxNgt

@NOWTV #BoxSetSabbatical I think this photo of a towel and duvet war re-enactment of the epic battle between a giraffe and an army of swans, says that I’m over qualified for my job and need to focus on something more challenging, like knowing the plots of every show ever pic.twitter.com/S9xDihTyxm
