You Can Get Paid to Watch Christmas Movies. Here’s How

‘Tis the season to snuggle in with a hot cup of cocoa, a cozy blanket, and your favorite Christmas movie — but what if you could get paid for it?

CableTV is searching for their annual “Chief of Cheer” employee for a job with a festive responsibility – to watch 25 Christmas movies in 25 days. The compensation? $2,500 (roughly $50/hr).

CableTV will require their employee to keep a log of every movie watched and rank them into three categories: Nostalgia, Heartwarming Storytelling and Holiday Cheer.

They can also only watch the movies from seven specific streaming platforms – Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Max, Apple TV+ and Hallmark Movies Now. The Chief of Cheer will need to rank the platforms in terms of how easy it was to use, if they experienced any errors and the quality of each platform’s catalog of Christmas movies.

Participants can watch any Christmas movie of their choice, which means that the definitive holiday film Die Hard can totally fit into the schedule.

You must be over 18 and a U.S. citizen to apply. No resume or interview is necessary; they only want you to fill out a short form on their website, including why you are the right person for the job.

“Beyond that, the only requirement is that you have a deep love for holiday movies, a song in your heart, and the willpower to marathon 25 movies in 25 days,” CableTV wrote on their website.

Applications close on December 1 at 11.59 p.m. MT, and the lucky winner will be notified on December 5.
