You Could Earn $1000 for Binge-Watching True Crime


MagellanTV just announced a dream opportunity for true crime fans. The docuseries streaming service will pay $1000 if you binge-watch 24 hours of true crime programming and then post about it on social media.

Yes, You Can Get Paid for Watching True Crime Series

Here’s what MagellanTV had to say about the gig: “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.”

In addition to watching a full day of true crime, the chosen candidate will have to post about their experience on social media, too. The brave soul will get the $1000 cash prize plus a free 1-year subscription to MagellanTV and three 3-month trial memberships for friends and family.

How to Apply

If you think this sounds like an awesome way to earn $1000, then check out the official entry application. You’ll need to convince them that you’re the best candidate by linking your social media information and rating your obsession with true crime (hint: it should be high).

In addition, MagellanTV is particularly interested in someone who could live-stream the experience, and they encourage a video submission along with the application.

What Is MagellanTV?

One of the seemingly countless streaming platforms available, MagellanTV is unique because of its focus on documentaries. It’s  not just true crime, either. The streaming platform offers plenty of science and history content, including documentaries that are great for kids.

But let’s be real: You know you’d be binge-watching all eight episodes of “Deadly Dates” before you checked out a nature documentary. It’s okay, we won’t judge.

MagellanTV is available on most devices, including Roku and Amazon fireTV. It costs between $6.99 and $4.99, depending on whether you are billed monthly or quarterly. They’re currently offering a 14-day trial, so even if you don’t get picked to be their binge-watching superstar, you can at least check out the streaming service for free.
