Some of the links included in this post are from our sponsors. Read our disclosure policy.

If you like to watch videos online, why not get paid for it?

There are actually several companies out there that will pay you to watch videos and TV.

Visit these sites to start earning money watching videos in your spare time.

Sites That Pay You to Watch Videos

Take a look at the sites below to decide what is important to you. Each site has different options, like getting paid in cash, that you can choose from to start making money while watching videos.

1. Swagbucks

One of the easiest ways to make money online is with Swagbucks. You will earn bucks for watching a variety of videos ranging from the world news, sports highlights, and other themed videos. It’s even possible to get paid to watch videos that are sponsored.

In addition to getting paid to watch videos, you can also make money surfing the web, taking online surveys, and even shopping online.

When you are ready to be paid, you can redeem your bucks for gift cards or PayPal cash. It’s your choice.

2. InboxDollars

InboxDollars also allows you to make money watching a variety of short videos on a daily basis. As one of the leading Swagbucks alternatives, you will also make money completing surveys, playing online games, performing web searches, and signing up for promotional offers.

You can also get paid each day to open sponsored emails sent from InboxDollars. You might also like this Swagbucks alternative because you get paid with cash and earn your first $5 just for signing up. So far, InboxDollars members have earned over $57 million in rewards!

3. Perk.tv

Perk is a sister site to Viggle and a better option if you want to make money watching short videos.

Some of the ways you can earn Perk Points include:

  • Watching movie and app trailers
  • Watching popular videos
  • Answering pop quizzes
  • Performing web searches on Perk
  • Shopping online
  • Downloading and trying out new apps

You can redeem Perk Points for cash, gift cards, merchandise, or to donate to charity.

In addition to earning Perk Points, you can also earn Perk Tokens that can be redeemed to enter sweepstakes.

Some of the potential prizes include cash rewards, gift cards, and electronic merchandise including video game consoles.

4. National Consumer Panel

National Consumer Panel is a joint venture between Nielsen and IRi that tracks people’s opinions on a variety of subjects. While NCP is primarily focused on tracking your shopping habits by scanning of products you purchase, they also provide video surveys to collect your opinion for advertising campaigns and product spots.

To get started with NCP, it is best to have an Apple or Android device. If you don’t have a compatible smartphone, National Consumer Panel will also send you a barcode scanner.

5. Watch Netflix

As the most popular subscription video streaming service, Netflix periodically hires “taggers” to watch and tag their programming to provide accurate recommendations to fellow subscribers.

All open positions are posted on the Netflix job board. Tagger positions are not the most financially lucrative and can require long hours. But, if you love to binge-watch content or watch anything Netflix has to offer, this can be a great opportunity.

6. Viggle

Viggle makes it easy to earn money watching your favorite TV shows. All you have to do is “tap the app” when watching TV or streaming on Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu. You will earn one per minute plus any bonuses.

Some shows offer a 10x bonus that allows you to earn 10 points per minute of viewing. To make watching videos fun, Viggle offers in-show games and opportunities to interact with your friends to earn even more points. Viggle will even offer extra points for watching new shows in addition to your current favorites.

To get started watching with Viggle, you will need an Android or Apple device. Points can be redeemed for gift cards, prizes, or cash with a prepaid debit card.

7. Watch YouTube Videos

Another video service that lets you watch a video on just about any topic is YouTube. Paid2YouTube will pay you to watch videos.

You earn money for watching YouTube videos posted on their website. To maximize your earning potential, take the time to rate videos, leave comments, subscribe to YouTube channels, and refer friends to join as well. After earning $10, Paid2YouTube will pay you via PayPal.

8. Nielsen Digital Voice

As many households are cutting the cable TV cord and streaming TV shows and videos online, the methods used to measure TV viewing habits have changed. Nielsen Digital Voice gives you the opportunity to tell the world what you watch on your computer or mobile device by downloading the Nielsen app.

In addition to earning rewards for watching videos, you will also get rewarded for your additional web activity as well.

You will earn rewards and also be entered into the monthly cash prize drawings. Nielsen gives away at least $10,000 each month, and over 400 members win smaller cash prizes. It’s also possible to earn additional rewards for participating in surveys.

9. Nielsen TV Ratings

If you still watch traditional television, you can also make money by becoming a Nielsen family. For decades, “Nielsen families” have been the primary influence for television show ratings as households track which shows they watch.

While this can be an exciting opportunity, participants are chosen at random, and there isn’t an application process. You will need to watch your mailbox for an invitation. If you are selected, they will pay you for your efforts.

Nielsen does invite more families during the “sweeps” season months of February, May, July, and November.

10. Slidejoy

If you enjoy interactive ads on your smartphone, give Slidejoy a try.

Slidejoy will display an ad when you unlock your phone on the passcode screen. Sliding your thumb right will dismiss the ad while sliding left will engage the ad and take you to the advertiser’s website to interact with the ad.

These ads can include watching YouTube videos, browsing the advertiser’s website, activating a digital coupon, or earning Google Play credits. To ensure fairness, you earn the same amount if you interact or dismiss the ad. You can also earn points for referring friends and linking your Facebook account.

For now, Slidejoy is only available on Apple and Android smartphones. They have plans to make Slidejoy tablet-compatible.

11. QuikRewards

Another site that allows you to make money watching videos and completing other online tasks is QuikRewards. Many people from the online community prefer QuikRewards because membership is open to residents of the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

In addition to watching videos, you can also sign up for additional money making opportunities including at least three daily surveys, reading emails, and a daily shopping opportunity that allows you to earn at least 25% cash back. You’re able to redeem points for PayPal cash and gift cards to your favorite restaurants and stores, including Amazon.

12. AppNana

AppNana pays you to download and test different apps. While most apps might pay you to play games, there are non-gaming apps and paid advertisements as well. You will earn “nanas” for each activity completed that you can redeem for Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Xbox gift cards.

13. CreationsRewards

CreationsRewards pays you to watch videos and also to shop online, take surveys, explore websites, play trivia games, and refer friends. The earnings opportunities are virtually limitless, and your rewards points can be redeemed for gift cards and PayPal cash. New members can also earn a $5 signup bonus.

14. SendEarnings

SendEarnings is another popular website that pays you for watching videos online along with taking surveys, shopping, redeeming digital coupons, and searching the web. You will get paid in cash and can also earn your first $5 just for signing up.

As a side note, SendEarnings is owned by InboxDollars, another site recommended in this article that pays you to watch videos.


You can get paid to watch videos from almost anywhere. It’s possible to make money from home or by visiting public places. If you have a smartphone, you can also make money on the go as well.

The flexibility of how you can earn money watching videos and movies is what makes this a fun and creative opportunity for anybody.

Have you made money watching television or videos? If so, let me know your experience below.

  8. Vrimee | EarnFreeDollars says:

    Josh Pataka,

    Nice post. I have never heard of the term theatre checker before. It seems to be interesting. I would like to share my experience in watching videos below.

    1. Swagbucks – It is one of my favorites sites. I have made a constant earning every month from the 6 mobile apps of Swagbucks by watching videos.

    2. Perk.tv – I used all the apps of the Perk family and have reached the minimum payout. However, they didn’t pay me saying there were some issues even though I replied back. I had no luck!

    3. InboxDollars – I guess now they have reduced the amount to watch videos. Still, it is a good option to make money from the InboxDollars TV. The only drawback is their high minimum payout of $30. So, I got paid only once.

    4. SlideJoy – I received payment from SlideJoy once. It’s slow earning, but legit.

    I’ve yet to explore the other options.

  9. Bijay says:

    It is the best way.

  10. Brian says:

    I used InboxDollars back in college and earned $100 before requesting payment. I received a check for the amount shortly thereafter. I’ve also recently used Swagbucks. My account got suspended for breach of rules, so make sure you read those before utilizing any site. Otherwise, all your hard work could be lost. I plan on giving each of these sites a look.
    Thanks for the article.

    • Deacon says:

      I am sorry your account got suspended. However, you give some good advice. Hopefully, you won’t get burned like that the next time. πŸ™‚

  11. faizi says:

    Quick Reward and Nana are the best platforms to make money. I would go with them.


    Wow, this is good and I am interested. But, how do I go about the registration?

  13. John Mc says:

    Hitbliss has been gone for about four years now.

  14. Mehdi says:

    Thanks. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  15. Shakeel Moosa says:

    Thanks mate for sharing this informative article. Of course these are the best ways to earn some bucks while watching videos. I’m working on Fiverr and also like to start this kind of earning in my leisure time. I’m very thankful for this guide.

  16. Pritpal says:

    Hi, sir. I’ve read your article for making money, but you ask me which website is best for me. I don’t want to pay any money.

    • Deacon says:

      You can sign up for lots of different websites and make money without having to pay anything. If you aren’t sure you want to sign up with them, check out their policies, terms, and conditions links to find out more before signing up.
      While watching videos does take time, it’s an easy way to make extra money. Good luck in your money making efforts!

  17. faiza says:

    I don’t have a PayPal account. Can you tell me the sites that don’t require one? From Bangladesh. πŸ™‚

    • Deacon says:

      Honestly, that is up to each individual site. You would just have to check with each one by going to their site and looking. Many do use PayPal or some other method of electronic payment. Once in a while you will find one that pays by mailing a check. It just depends on what they chose to use as a payment method. Good luck!

  18. Deepal Rodrigo says:

    Thank you for introducing us on how to make money through watching online videos, but I am not sure of the correct way to do it.
    Regards, Deepal Rodrigo

    • Deacon says:

      Just go to the site you are interested in and it should tell you what to do. I hope you have good luck with a few of them. πŸ™‚

  19. Ashish malik says:

    Does it really work?

  20. Arindam says:

    Thanks, sir. I have only 1 question for you: how do I protect my bank account from being suspended by these apps and do I have to give my account number to all of these apps?

    • Deacon says:

      To keep your account inside the apps from being suspended, I would carefully read through the Policies, Terms, and Conditions sections of each. That way you can ensure that you follow their rules, which should keep you from getting suspended. As far as giving your account number to them, you should not have to. Most pay through PayPal or some other such platform. Again, check how they pay before signing up if you are concerned. Good luck to you!

  21. Mj says:

    They don’t allow users from Asia…That’s sad.

    • Deacon says:

      I’m sorry to hear that. Perhaps you could try some other money making avenues. We have tons listed on our website for you to try. Good luck!

  22. Isah says:

    Good afternoon. I’m from Nigeria. What apps can you suggest for me to try now that allow anyone to participate thank you.

    • Deacon says:

      Well, I would say you could try any of them. However, if you want to be sure they will work in your country, check the policies, terms, and conditions sections of each as well as the FAQ’s. If you don’t get the answers you need, try contacting them directly to ask. I wish you luck!

  23. Chaithra says:

    How will Nielsen Digital Voice do payments? Will they transfer money to PayPal? Please let me know.

    • Deacon says:

      The best way to find that out is to go on their website and check out the policies, terms, and conditions. If you do not find the answer there, look for their contact information and ask them directly. Good luck!

  24. chaithra Udupa says:

    Is QuikRewards available in India?

    • Deacon says:

      I don’t know without checking their website. That’s where I would start if I were you. If that doesn’t tell you, try contacting them to ask. That way you don’t miss out on an opportunity to make money. Good luck!

  25. Angel R Soto says:

    I was doing something similar, but they pay with BITCOIN and I never knew my balance in cash. How can I get it?

    • Deacon says:

      Since you didn’t say what app this was in I can’t look at the specific app you are speaking about. In general, I would say to look at the policies or terms and conditions for the app you are in. They are usually posted at the bottom of the main page. It should tell you somewhere how to redeem your points, money, or Bitcoin. If you can’t find it, I would look for a contact page to contact them directly and ask how to redeem your bitcoin. Good luck.

  26. Suga Mama says:

    Josh Patoka,

    With all due respect, Josh, none of the above websites are applicable to me, here in the Caribbean. πŸ˜” The websites that do look promising are only available to residents of a certain country, such as America or another country.

    I only recently found out that Netflix is available here in the Caribbean. My only issue is, due to circumstances beyond my control, I am unable to purchase or sign up with Netflix.

    To be honest, I’m tired of researching dozens of websites. When I thought that I’d finally found the perfect “get paid to work online from home watching videos”, I found out that they were all scams. 😒😭

    That said, I’ve given up looking for such websites.

  27. John Ben says:

    Thanks so much. I really like this article, but my own question is, which of these sites is most suitable for Nigerians?

    • Deacon says:

      You would just have to check the ones you are interested in to see if they will work in your country. Lots of times you can find that information right on the website. Sometimes they have a site map that tells you, or it could be a list. Also, check the policies, terms, and conditions sections. If all of those fail to say, you can always look for their contact information and ask directly. I hope you find one that works for you!

  28. Alonge M. A says:

    I can’t join this program because my country, Nigeria, is not accepted.

    • Deacon says:

      I’m sorry that these sites don’t accept Nigeria. But as an alternative, we do have other posts on our site about different ways you can make money. Check them out to see if there are some that will work for you. Good luck!

  29. Marisa angca says:

    This is my first time, but I well try if this is a legit post.

  32. Yemi says:

    Is it possible for someone from Africa to get paid from the above listed sites?

    • Deacon says:

      Maybe. You would just have to check with each of the sites you are interested in to see if it is available in Africa. Check their site map, if they have one. Also, look at policies, terms and conditions. If none of that tells you, contacting them directly through the contact information on their site is another way to find out.

  33. Jonathan Arwita says:

    What sites above are available in the Philippines?

    • Deacon says:

      You would just have to take a look at the ones you are interested in to see if you can do them there. A good place to check is in their policies, terms and conditions. Some may also have a site map that shows what countries they are available in. If none of that answers your question, you could also contact them directly through their contact information on each site and ask. I wish you luck!

  34. Tayyab says:

    Hi! I’m from Pakistan. I have seen many people commenting that these websites aren’t allowed in Asia. Is it now available in Asia (Pakistan)? One more Question: Are these websites totally safe?

    • Deacon says:

      If you want to know if any of the websites are allowed in Pakistan, check out the sites you are interested in. Take a look at their site map, policies, and terms and conditions. If none of that tells you, try asking directly through their contact information on their website. I hope that helps.

If none of that works, try contacting them directly from the contact information on their website. Good luck!

  38. Ron says:

    What’s the site for Philippines?

    • Deacon says:

      To find out if any of these work in the Philippines you would need to check with each one. Try looking at their policies, terms and conditions, and FAQ’s to find out. If that doesn’t work, you could always try asking them directly through the contact info on their site.

  39. Ben T says:

    Can I have a list of the sites available in Zambia, please?

      The best way to find that out is to check the policies, terms and conditions, FAQ’s, and site maps (if any) for the sites that interest you. If that doesn’t tell you, try contacting them directly to ask through the site’s contact information.

  40. MK says:

    Typically, how much do people make from watching videos online? How long does it take before you start making money?

    • Deacon says:

      It depends on the requirements from each different site. They all have their own policies, terms, and conditions. Check them out to see which ones work the best for you. Good luck!

  41. michael says:

    When it comes to payments, most of them require PayPal in Zambia. You cannot receive money using PayPal.
    So, what site is best for us in Zambia, please?

    • Deacon says:

      You would just have to check out the sites you are interested in. Some may have a site map that tells what countries they work in. For others you might have to look at their policies, terms and conditions, or FAQ (frequently asked questions) section. If that doesn’t tell you, try contacting them through their contact information on the website to ask them directly. I hope that helped. πŸ™‚

    How do I start watching videos?

  43. vijeta says:

    Do these jobs need any qualifications or have any age restrictions?

    • Deacon says:

      I could look them up and post them, but they could change their requirements at any time and then my information would be wrong. The best way to find out is to click on the links in the post and check out each one you are interested in.

  44. Emmanuel says:

    Guys, I’m in Africa. What’s your experience with WORKMINES?

    • Deacon says:

      I’m not sure what your actual question is. I’ve never used them. Are you asking if they are legit or not? Honestly, I do not know. I did notice they have a membership fee that makes me wonder if it is actually legit.

  45. Kagiso says:

    Hi, I’m South African. Our employment rate is so very high. So, I just want to watch the videos in SA and get paid.

    • Deacon says:

      I don’t know if any of these are available in South Africa or not. You would just need to go to the sites you are interest in and look. Check for a site map and also look at their policies, terms and conditions, and FAQ’s (frequently asked questions). If none of that tells you, try asking them directly by using their contact information. Good luck!

  46. Kagiso says:

    Sorry, I want to ask if it’s available in South Africa for me to watch?

  47. Ramatulahi Fatima conde says:

    That is so nice, but I would like to ask something. How would I receive my payment?

    • Deacon says:

      That’s between you and whichever company you work with. Each company has it’s own rules. You should be able to see them in their policies, terms and conditions, or other area of their website. If you can’t find the information, contact them directly using the contact information on their site.

  48. Andrea says:

    None of these are available anymore.

    • Deacon says:

      Did you actually follow the links? I followed the first couple of links myself and they work and let you watch videos and get paid.

  54. siboniso says:

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Now I have an idea where to start. I think I should try each one of these opportunities. I’m in Africa – Swaziland to be specific – and most of these platforms don’t work in my country, yet internet access has improved.

    • Deacon says:

      Not everything that works in the U.S. works in other countries, to be sure. You will just have to check with each company you are interested in. I hope at least a couple work for you! πŸ™‚

  55. Anne Studstill says:

    I made 30 dollars in 9 days of around 4 hours each on Inbox Dollars. Some of it was passive tv video watching, so easy. There is a 3 dollar fee for receiving a check, but they credited me 3 dollars toward my next check and offered me a fast 2 dollar survey about Inbox Dollars. The check may take 18 days to send. My only complaints are that I am often disqualified from surveys after answering questions for several minutes. The free spins rarely make me more than a penny per survey that can’t be completed. The best way to earn is to look through the survey list and to find the highest paying per minute. The daily home page surveys are easy and give credit toward scratch and win cards. You always win something, but the amounts can be tiny. Overall this site is easy for beginners. and I make around 90 a month, but others make 124 or more. Pinecone pays around 12 a month for around 4 surveys a month and after a few weeks you can get free things in the mail to test confidentially. Toluna is another good site that offers many types of gift cards in exchange for points for surveys. It takes a few weeks to get enough points to have a good selection of cards.

    • Deacon says:

      So glad to hear you’ve been having success with some of these sites! Of course they have their cons, but they can make you money! Thanks for sharing some of your experiences!
