MagellanTV Will Pay Someone $100 per Hour to Watch True Crime Documentaries

Lauren Forristal

True crime fan? Listen to this. MagellanTV’s third annual “Crime Watch Dream Job” is back, and one lucky winner will earn $100 an hour to binge a long list of true crime documentaries for 24 hours (a total of $2,400). If this sounds like a dream job to you, you can apply here.

To apply, viewers must live in the United States and be on social media since the role revolves around them sharing their experiences the entire way. They will have 48 hours to watch 24 hours of content and they will need to bring social media followers along for the journey.

Applications close on April 18 at 5 p.m. ET. The winner will be notified by email and/or phone within 10 business days of the closing date.

The application states:

“Our ideal candidate lives for True Crime—they can handle the most menacing serial killer, the goriest details, and don’t flinch at the chilling paranormal. And they love it so much that they’re willing to stream it nonstop for 24 hours. Along with watching, they’ll be documenting their True Crime all-nighter on social media so everyone will see if they can hack it… or not.”

In addition to the grand prize winner, MagellanTV will give 100 runners-up a free membership to MagellanTV for one year (a $60 value). Or you can just sign up today and get a seven-day free trial.
