Do you love streaming video services like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max? The Streamable (thestreamable.com) is seeking freelance writers who are passionate about cord-cutting and streaming service news.

You'll write about channels coming and going from YouTube TV and fuboTV. You'll write about new features added to HBO Max and Sling TV. And when the next streaming service does the CNN+ swan dive, you'll try to explain what went wrong. We help cord-cutters enjoy maximum entertainment at the price that's right for them, and you can join the team.

Please visit our site at thestreamable.com to review our work. If these stories seem cool to you, we hope you'll apply.

The company is fully remote, so you can join from anywhere in the U.S., but the role requires availability starting at 9 a.m. ET.

What You Should Know:

  • You will write 3-5 timely news articles per day (~400 words each), but there is an opportunity for more if you pitch or take evergreen assignments.
  • We pay $20/hour, with a minimum of $20 per article and a bonus if you pitch the story to us.
  • If you write more than 20 articles per month for us, we will pay for up to $25 of your streaming services. Yes, that means you can get Netflix, Disney+, and/or HBO Max on us.

This is a perfect opportunity for young journalists who want to hone their writing skills with an experienced managing editor with more than 20 years of experience in the news industry as their mentor.
