MagellanTV, a documentary-exclusive streaming service will give one true crime fan a $1000 cash prize for watching content, but only if they can watch it for 24 hours straight.
The marathon of content includes 16 true-crime documentaries ranging from the 44-minute-long Tortured to Death: Murdering the Nanny to true-crime series Behind Bars, which has a run time of nearly five hours. Other docos include Manson’s Missing Victims, Women on Death Row, Parachute Murder Plot, Jonestown: Paradise Lost, Delhi Cops and more.
“Our candidate has a passion for all things true crime,” MagellanTV said in a statement. “They can handle the creepiest serial killer, the grizzliest details, and the haunting spookiness of the paranormal. So much so that our candidate is willing to stream it nonstop for 24 hours.”
If the challenge seems too easy, there are a couple of terms and conditions: MagellanTV said that entrants “will enthusiastically document their All-Night Crime Watch on their social channels so their followers can watch to see if they crack…or not.” The application also consists of a short essay explaining why you should be declared the winner.
Along with $1000 cash, the winner will also score a one-year free membership to MagellanTV and three, three-month memberships for friends and family. MagellanTV is a streaming service that features a growing collection of over 1,500 of the world’s best documentary series and feature lengths. Built by documentary filmmakers who share your passion for gripping, true stories, the service adds new content every week.
The MagellanTV 24-hour doco binge contest is open to those in the United States, and the deadline to apply is May 4. You’re already watching a record amount of content during the coronavirus lockdown, so why not get paid for it?
