Emma Quartly, Marketing Director at NOW TV explained why NOW TV has launched its Box Set Sabbatical: “Our research found one in seven Brits spend their holiday catching up on telly and 40 percent say TV helps them escape and relax, so in the depths of winter, we wanted to take duvet days to another level with the first ever TV streaming sabbatical”

NOW TV has found that the average Brit has just 100 minutes of free time per day with one in 10 Brits cramming in an episode over lunch and one in 20 (5%) admitting to pulling a sickie to watch TV.

Nearly a quarter of Brits (23%) felt left out socially when friends, family or colleagues are talking about a show they haven’t seen and a third has watched a whole season in a day or weekend just to keep up.

To enter, TV fans simply need to post a video or image showing why they deserve to win this ultimate gig. Entries should be submitted via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #BoxSetSabbatical and tagging @NOWTV.

Speaking about the competition, Joel Dommett said: “For anyone who loves telly, this really is the most unbelievable gig. Sitting with my feet up watching my favourite shows AND getting paid for the privilege is something I quite literally dream about.”
