The 'Catch-Up Grant' is a unique project that provides a quiet place for consumers to binge watch their favorite shows. Thanks to services such as Netflix, binge-watching has become a favorite pastime for many consumers. This unique retreat provides an opportunity for dedicated TV fans to watch their favorite shows in peace.

The Catch-Up Grant is an Samsung-sponsored initiative that gives one lucky recipient the opportunity to binge watch their favorite programs in a Tibetan monastery. The idea behind the program is to help those who feel as though they are missing out because they are not up to date on the most popular programs. The Catch-Up Grant gives the recipient 100 days to spend their time watching TV without the distractions of daily life. The winner also receives financial compensation to ensure that their binge-watching does not come at a cost.

The unusual program ultimately serves as a kind of spiritual quest for the modern age.
