Are you an armchair detective who enjoys true crime documentaries and wants to make extra cash during the coronavirus quarantines? Well, you’re in luck because there is a streaming service that’s willing to pay one lucky person $1,000 to binge-watch its crime programming.
MagellanTV is offering the four-figure payout to the person who can watch its prepared list of 16 documentaries within 24 hours.
“Our candidate has a passion for all things true crime. They can handle the creepiest serial killer, the grizzliest details, and the haunting spookiness of the paranormal. So much so that our candidate is willing to stream it nonstop for 24 hours straight,” the company wrote in a statement.
If the challenge seems too easy or you’re toying with the idea of letting the stream run its course in the background, MagellanTV has an extra condition for the participant.
“They will enthusiastically document their All-Night Crime Watch on their social channels so their followers can watch to see if they crack…or not,” the company added.

- “Manson’s Missing Victims”

Despite MagellanTV’s previous statement regarding its search for someone that can watch the 16 documentaries for 24 hours straight, the company is actually allowing the selected participant 48 hours to get the task done – so sleeping and other breaks aren’t prohibited.
The person who completes the challenge will receive the $1,000 cash prize, a one-year free membership to MagellanTV and a three-month membership for three friends or family members.
To submit your application, visit magellantv.com/crime-watch-dream-job and submit a brief statement on why you’re the “perfect” fit for the job. A video submission is also encouraged.
The application deadline closes at 5:00 p.m. EST on May 4.
