Company offers $2,500 to watch Christmas movies for the festive season

Do you fancy being a Chief of Cheer?

While many of us are willing to watch Christmas movies for free, one firm is offering a decent pay day to do it for them.

From Elf and Love Actually, to Klaus and Home Alone, there's an array of fantastic films to watch this festive season.

And CableTV simply wants you to watch 25 of them over a 25 day period.

In return, the company will pay you an impressive $2,500, as well as give you yearly subscriptions to seven of the top streaming sites so you have access to watch people's festive favorites.

You'll get subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Max, Apple TV+ and Hallmark Movies Now.

The official job title is 'Chief of Cheer', and it sounds right up Buddy the Elf's street.

After watching the movies, CableTV then wants the lucky individual to rate the films based on their nostalgia factor, heartwarming storytelling, and overall holiday cheer.

In addition to this, the company wants to hear about which streaming platforms are the most user-friendly, offer a good selection of holiday films, and if you encounter any issues during your movie marathons.

Piece of (Christmas) cake.

CableTV wants someone to watch 25 Christmas movies in 25 days.

But what movies are you expected to watch, I hear you ask?

The choice is completely yours! But CableTV has given a few suggestions on its website to help you get started if you're struggling for inspiration.

In regards to who can apply for the role of Chief of Cheer, you have to be over the age of 18, and a US resident.

"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's website adds.

The winner will be contacted via email on 5 December.

If the company struggles to get in touch with you, it'll pick someone else instead - so make sure you're keeping an eye on your emails that day!

You can apply here.

You also get a year subscriptions to streaming sites like Amazon Prime.

Other companies have also paid people to watch movies, with FinanceBuzz having offered $1,000 to someone to watch all of the Fast and Furious franchise earlier this year.

The firm wanted someone to help ‘assess the auto damage across all 10 movies’ - and I can only imagine that it was in the millions.

I mean, we've all seen that scene in Fast Five where they steal a whole vault, right?
