Calling all television-lovers. Your dream job is here! Yep, now you can get paid to watch TV. That is, if you’re lucky enough to score this ridiculously rad gig. Oh, and did we mention that it pays $20 an hour?
Your fantasy could come true (and no, we don’t mean the one that has any of the Hemsworth brothers in it). Imagine that you get to spend the day sitting on the couch binge-watching show after show. And you don’t need to feel bad about it—because it’s your job. Whoa.

The website HowToWatch.com recently announced that they have an open position for the right candidate to test live-streaming platforms. The job requires some serious TV-watching—100 hours in all. This contract position (meaning it’s not full-time or permanent) pays $500 up front and $1,500 after the job is completed.
There are no required or set hours, as long as you watch 100 hours total by Nov. 1, 2018. This includes at least 14 hours of live content on each of the major streaming platforms they’re testing: DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Philo, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV and YouTube TV. And don’t worry if you aren’t a subscriber of these services now—the job includes free access to them.
Along with watching TV, you’ll also need to take detailed notes (on the performance of the streaming service) and help HowtoWatch.com score live streaming services.
To apply you’ll need to be at least 18 years old, have excellent communication skills, maintain a strong social media presence, a passion for TV and entertainment and the ability to rate the quality of the stream itself. While experience creating product reviews isn’t a must-have, it is a bonus.
If this sounds like the job for you, go to HowtoWatch.com and apply!
