Dish Will Pay You $1000 to Binge Watch ‘The Office’





This month marks 15 years since The Office first appeared on TV. To celebrate, why not binge watch 15 hours of the classic sitcom? Dish Network will pay one super fan $1000 to watch 15 hours of The Office in 9 days (That’s about 45 episodes for those of you who don’t want to do the math).

According to Dish, here are just some of the qualities they’re looking for in the perfect applicant:

“We’re looking for someone not superstitious, but a little stitious. Do you sing in the shower, spend too much time volunteering, or occasionally hit someone with your car? We don’t care how “flawed” you are. We want you to apply!”

But you’ll have to do a little work for your money. As you’re watching, you’ll need to complete a checklist that tallies the number of common tropes that occur throughout each episode. Dish wants this information to track how many times sitcoms use repeated tropes. And get your tweeting thumbs ready to share your opinions on social media!

If you think you’re up for the challenge, head over to Dish’s website to sign up. Here’s what you’ll get if you’re selected:

  • $1,000 in compensation (you know, in case you forgot)
  • Winner’s kit with The Office swag (which may or may not include a Dundie, “World’s Best Boss” mug, Jell-O, and a stapler)
  • Netflix gift card
  • Freedom to complete the “job” from wherever you please (no need to go into an office to watch The Office)

Sign up here. But hurry, the entry deadline is March 16 at 5 PM MST.
