You Could Get Paid £35 Per Hour To Watch TV

Sounds too good to be true, but it's real

Fancy getting paid for vegging out in front of the telly? Well, now is your chance, because a tech company is looking to pay someone to do just that.

Now that we're all spending much more time at home, it's been surprising how nice it can be -provided you've got a telly, and a freezer full of ice pops.

But - and bear with me here - what if your job was watching TV?

Well, this dream could become a reality for you if you're an English speaker with excellent writing skills - and over the age of 18.

Damn, that's me out, but two out of three ain't bad.

The wages aren't bad, either. The princely sum of £35 per hour, for a minimum of 20 hours per week. That's a cool £700 per week, all in.


The job description calls for a 'Tech Tester' to give feedback on a range of electronic products including TVs, cameras, smart devices, headphones and home cinema equipment.

OnBuy - a company that describes itself as the 'world's fastest growing marketplace' - is willing to send out the gear to let the lucky applicant road-test at home.

All you've got to do is send back a 200-word report and some lovely pictures of the gear.

The description says: "If successful, you'll receive a selection of products from the site every month to make yourself familiar with, in order to improve the product page onsite.

"You'll be required to thoroughly test each product, focusing on design, performance and durability, as well as discussing qualities including sound, display, functionality and value for money."

To sweeten the deal, you'll get to keep some of the tech that you're sent. Not bad, all told.


As mentioned before, you don't need any specific tech experience, but writing skills and English fluency are a must.

OnBuy founder Cas Paton said: "We aim to provide customers with accurate information and a seamless experience, so by collecting feedback from a tech expert, we can provide customers with in-depth information from someone who's really put the product through its paces.

"I'm confident our first Tech Tester will help deliver that, and it's important to us that the individual be a normal everyday tech enthusiast, who commonly uses the products on sale and knows what consumers are looking for.

"Depending on what customers want, they will now be able to read an insight-filled analysis from another gadget-loving consumer - without having to leave the product page!"

Feel like applying? Well, the job application page is right here.
