So are you a Game of Thrones fan? Yes. Can you wait to have your favorite show to return on screens? Hell No! The excitement is just too much to contain, right? But what if you were told that you could make money by only watching it? Well, this could well be true if you were ready to take the Box Set Sabbatical by NOW TV. Are you game?
Picture this for a moment. You are one of those people who experience a major #FOMO when your peeps talk about their favorite shows. Even worse is the fact that you haven’t even started on any of those shows because you already have too much on your plate. And to top it all, you just don’t have the time for some wholesome TV entertainment.
Well, you are not alone my friend. There have been instances where people have bunked office or done an all-nighter only to end up binge-watching their favorite shows.
The binge-watching challenge
NOW TV has conducted surveys and this is what they found. Explains Emma Quartly, Marketing Director at NOW TV, “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.”
So here’s the deal. You can binge watch all your favorites, including Game of Thrones, by taking an entire year out for the same. Apart from the promised £35K, which equals to a year’s pay, you will also get a smart stick and 12 months of NOW TV passes.
Of course, it’s easier said than done. The entries should come through your social media account on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tagging @NOWTV and hashtagging #BoxSetSabbatical. You will be eligible to participate only after your entry is reviewed by a panel of judges. And that includes comedian Joel Dommett.
