Byline: Kirsty Bosley

A TV streaming service is offering a [pounds sterling]35,000 prize and a year's free subscription so one lucky can take 12 months off work to watch their favourite box sets.

Now TV says its 'Box Set Sabbatical' will allow the winner to take a 'Box Set Sabbatical' meaning they can binge watch their favourite shows all night and never have to worry about setting the alarm for work.

Research by the firm found that one in five Brits have stayed up late at night watching their favourite shows.

It also claimed the average Brit has just 100 minutes of free time per day, with one in 10 cramming in an episode of their favourite show on their lunch break.

And 5% of those it surveyed admitted they'd called in sick in order to watch TV.

Emma Quartly, marketing director at NOW TV, said: "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."

The Now TV service streams popular shows such as Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Walking Dead.

As well as taking home [pounds sterling]35,000, the winner will get a NOW TV Smart Stick, plus 12 months of NOW TV passes.

To enter, TV fans simply need to post a video or image showing why they deserve to win on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
