NOW TV is on the look out for someone to earn £35,000 to take a year out and binge-watch shows as part of a ‘box-set sabbatical’.

The lucky winner will pick up a year’s salary of £35K, a NOW TV smart stick and 12 months of NOW TV passes.

Emma Quartly, Marketing Director at NOW TV explained why they have chosen to launch its Box Set Sabbatical saying “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.”

The job opportunity follows hot on the heels of a recent NOW TV survey which found that nearly a quarter of Brits felt left out when friends, family or colleagues  are together talking about a show they haven’t seen.

The study also showed that a fifth of Brits have done a classic all-nighter to catch up on their favourite TV box set – or crammed in an episode over lunch or even bunked off work to watch TV.

However, if you are wanting to take the next year off to catch up on TV it’s not as simple as sending in your CV – you must post a video or image showing why you deserve to win.

Entries should be submitted via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #BoxSetSabbatical and tagging @NOWTV.

Then a panel of judges, including the self-confessed box set buff and comedian, Joel Dommett, will review the entries and select a winner that they think best demonstrates TV watching passion, creativity and experience.

Entries are now open and close at midnight, Thursday 14 February 2019. Further details on how to enter, as well as full terms and conditions, can be found here.
