The internet continues to be a haven for people to explore limitless opportunities. But as some spend time gathering information and learning new things, others spend their’s trying to dupe people of their money, and yet a few others spend their time trying to earn a legitimate income from it.

With a lot of revenue channels to be exploited on the internet, one area people know almost nothing about is how to make money watching videos online from home.

We spend countless hours watching the television, youtube videos, and many other types of videos that may or may not add value to our lives. Rather than waste time on these clips, video junkies could as well channel their attention to making money while they do what they enjoy.

If you’ve wondered how this is possible but could never figure it out, here are 6 ways to make money watching videos online at home:

3). By Watching TV Shows:

Viggle is a mobile application that pays you with points to watch your favourite TV shows. Whether you’re watching it live on Netflix, Hulu, and the likes, every point you acquire can eventually be converted to cash or gift cards.


4). By Watching Netflix Movies:

Did you know you could make money watching Netflix movies? Yes, you heard that right! Netflix regularly hires people they call “taggers”, whose jobs are basically to watch and tag the videos in the right categories, so the company can always provide accurate recommendations to other subscribers.

While working as a tagger may not be lucrative, you’d still get to spend long hours watching movies almost for free.

You can visit the Netflix job board to watch out for the next opening.

Depending on your location, you may or may not be able to sign up for several of these programs. But by using someone living in the allowed regions to sign up, you could have a functional account.

  1. Thanks for the info. My question is, which one of these ways can someone in Nigeria make money? Since we’re not all privileged to have someone living abroad who can sign up for us

    • Hi Raymond,

      The goal of the particular article was to expose the opportunity.

      You could also register with a proxy, but you’d need a Paypal account registered outside the country.

      If you can get someone living abroad to help you sign up, you can run these yourself.

      Our other affiliate marketing articles cover points that are fully workable from Nigeria without the help of an external party.

      But thank you for asking and have a great time.

  2. Hey! I need to ask about Paid2Youtube website. Is it affiliated with youtube in any way or are they providing money on every video of Youtube or is there any particular category of videos on which they are paying money?

    • Hi, Divya,

      They’re not affiliated with Youtube, but have a way they run their program.

      I’d suggest you reach out to their support team.

      Thank you for asking.

    • Hi, Elizabeth,

      You can run some of the programs from Nigeria, but you’d need someone in the US to set it up for you.

      Thank you for asking.

  3. Good day sir. I want to know if you know more about getting paid online from work at home jobs. Companies sending you small tax jobs like read mails and get paid, get paid to watch videos, survey,etc. I am most concern with that but the problem is that we are in a country where those foreign countries do not recognise. Is there any company that does such in Nigeria or foreign countries that support Nigerian’s in it. There are a lot out there, but it favours countries like uk, canada,America. Etc. Trying to do this successfully, you need to have a paypal account which we know is not supported in Nigeria as a country and also have a vpn to cover your ip address, but my vpn keeps disconnecting, there by revealing my true location and before you know, I get blocked from the site. Please give me your advise on this. Thank you.

    • Hi Evanz,

      Most of these works mainly for people who have PayPal accounts.

      You can contact someone you know with a PayPal account you could use.

  4. Hello admin! Can you help me out with the PayPal account and all that…I don’t know someone who could help.

  5. Thanks I appreciate. I think if someone can successfully open a paypal account out of numerous websites I think someone can successfully sign up with one or two

  6. Please sir I comend your efforts, it’s really helpful, but how can i obtain this PayPal in nigeria? Since I don’t have someone abroad to make-up the settings for me thanks
