Want to Get Paid $45,716 to Watch ‘Game of Thrones’? Now You Can

If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. Well, listen up Game of Thrones, True Detective and even The Bachelor fans, because the least job-like job wants to pay you for doing what you love.

NOW TV is offering one lucky TV lover the lucrative opportunity to spend a year binge-watching shows (everything from GoT to The Real Housewives of Atlanta!) as part of what they’re cleverly calling a “Box Set Sabbatical.”

How—and more importantly, why—does this position exist? It started when NOW TV, a telecommunications company in the U.K., Ireland and Italy, conducted a study that found nearly 25 percent of British people feel left out when their loved ones discuss a show they haven’t seen yet. It also found that 20 percent of Brits have skipped work or stayed up all night to binge watch a show. Presumably, some internet-savvy marketing person saw an opportunity and ran with it. So, being the conscientious people they are over at NOW TV, they opted to give one lucky winner £35,000 (about $45,716), a TV smart stick and 12 months of NOW TV passes.

So how do you enter? Just share a video or photo via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter by Thursday, February 14, explaining why you deserve to win. (Try to up the excitement and creativity ante here, people.) You’ll also need to use the hashtag #BoxSetSabbatical and tag @NOWTV. Easy. The downside? Entrants must currently live in the United Kingdom.

Current to-do list: Move to the U.K. and submit enthusiastic video by 11:59 p.m. GMT on Wednesday, February 13. Because who doesn’t want to get paid to watch TV in their pajamas for 365 days?
