Imagine doing something and realizing you’re missing out on 25 bucks an hour just by doing literally the exact same thing.
That’s now the reality for most of us as one company is looking for a person to literally do just about nothing but watch sports for hours on end for them.
A company called “Streaming Observer” wants to hire dedicated sports enthusiasts to devote their precious time to watch sporting events. For hours and hours. Minimum 10 hours a week.
They want to know how certain streaming services work, especially on particular devices (which they give you).
The catch? It is like a job in that they want you to report back. They give you an outline and you take notes to let them know how your experience using the service or device compared.
Sound like the perfect job for you? Someone, you know?
So why is this company paying people to watch sports? In the day and age of the Internet, nothing should surprise us, but the answer is simple:
It’s for research. Streaming Observer measures the quality performance Internet video playback across a multitude of devices. This information to analyze video watching trends and behaviors for the online video streaming industry.
That’s why they are willing to pay $25/hr for you to watch sports on a bunch of different devices and services.
You must also be available to work at least 10 hours a week, which I’m sure most applicants would rather be higher. There are a few other things they looking for:
• Must be at least 18 years old.
• Have to be a US resident.
• Need to have a reliable internet connection.
• Must have a TV, smartphone, and computer.
• Need to be a good communicator (reply to emails, provide updates, etc.)
Do you love sports? If not, you might be persuaded to watch sports for $25/hour, but the company is really looking for real “sports junkies”. Does this sound like you or someone you know?
Do you spend every night on the couch taking in all the sports you can handle? Are you a hardcore fan who watches 5, 6, 7, even 8 hours of football, baseball, basketball, and other sports every week? The company’s listing can be seen here.
