Nowadays, there is a plethora of bizarre ways to earn money, what with all the smart technology that surrounds us. You just need to come up with a fancy resume or a smartphone app. There are many people out there who would kill for a job which involves sitting at the confines of your own home and watching movies and TV shows. But just how does this exactly work?
Believe it or not, Netflix is looking for people to watch movies and TV shows and they are ready and willing to pay for this service. Of course, there is a catch (not a big one, though) – they are to provide them with in-depth analysis of what they’ve seen.
The main idea here is to come up with objective categorization of whatever type of program is in question. Namely, the employees are to watch a movie or a show and categorize it by genre, such as “horror comedy”, “sports drama with strong female lead”, “war biography”, “music fiction” and such. These tags even stem to ridiculously specific levels, such as “Time travel and dinosaurs”, “Low self-esteem high school movie”, and even “Comatose patient horror”.
Yet another perk here is the fact that those employed for this position will get to watch Netflix’s content, prior to the rest of the world, so if you are a TV enthusiast, this is without a doubt a perfect job for you.
However, it is not all sunshine and butterflies – even though sitting on your couch while watching cool new movies and shows might sound flawless, you will still have to watch up to 5 movies a day – and this would make your working hours up to as much as 12 hours daily. Imagine if you had to go through the entire Lord of the Rings extended trilogy – this would take you 11 hours and 23 minutes!
So in addition to being glued to your TV, you won’t be able to perform your regular daily activities. To make things even worse, should your employer ask you to binge watch an entire season of a TV show, you’re looking at a minimum of 10 hours of TV time, without too much diversity.
However, if you already are somewhat of a couch potato, and spending as much as 6 hours daily on watching television content, you might as well get paid for it.
A more part-time type of a job when it comes to this area of “expertise” would be by installing the Viggle phone app, which allows you to check into TV shows you’re watching. Although the pay here is significantly lower to the counterpart Netflix offer, you only need to tap a button, so that the mentioned app can listen and detect the show you’re watching. For each minute you watch, you get one point.
So, if you aren’t all that enthusiastic about the content of a show, and want to have more spare time on your hands, this might be a perfect thing for you. Moreover, you are the one who dictates your working hours.
It is quite difficult to comprehend the point to which the technology of today has led us to. The only thing you need to do is to choose one of the best broadband and entertainment bundles available, and you can start earning money binge watching TV shows and movies.
