The notion of being able to earn money watching videos was few and far in between just a few years ago but now it is getting more popular than ever and many more companies are offering this option to their members.

Ultimate Work from home Guide with 100+ companies hiring now plus sites for extra cash

Before you get started, please be sure to read over their terms and conditions.  Each site will have a different list of terms and you will need to abide by and agree to those if you want to remain a member of the site.  I also recommend that you use these sites in combination with the other ones to help you reach your payment threshold faster so that you will stick with it.

Here is a list of sites that will pay you to watch TV, videos, movie trailers, and more online.

1.  Perk

This site has 12 different free apps that you can use including the Perk TV and the new Perk TV Live app which will give you points that you can exchange for free gift cards and cash to watch your own TV at home.  The app will pick up the sound from your television and give you points for watching selected TV shows, movies, and more.  Both of these apps from Perk are completely free to use.  If you don’t have a mobile device, you will still be able to use the Perk and watch TV and movie trailers online right from your computer.  You will need to be at least 13 in order to use Perk and they have several different ways including searching the web, playing pop trivia, and other ways to earn.  I highly recommend this site.

2.  Rewardia

You can only sign up for Reward Rack by invitation only.  There is also a waiting list but it will only take a few weeks for you to be notified via email by Reward Rack when you can log in to your account.  Reward Rack will also give you free Amazon, Target, and Walmart gift cards to watch new TV shows online as well as take Peanut Lab surveys, surf the web, and more.  It is only available in the US and you are not allowed to have more than 5 accounts per household.

    Hi Heaven,

    Maybe you could tell them that you don’t know what to include and see what their response is because I am honestly not sure what to do. You could always leave it blank or put n/a in that section also.
