Winners will be able to binge watch shows in specially themed locations.
LG has announced the launch of its "B&Binge" contest, offering fans the chance to win a trip to binge watch select Netflix series in show-themed settings like a palace or a yacht.
"TV today has become such an immersive experience. Viewers form deeply ingrained connections to the characters, settings and plots," said Michelle Fernandez, head of home entertainment marketing, LG Electronics USA. "With this campaign, they'll be able to see, hear and feel the same things their favorite characters encounter. Our goal is to celebrate this new form of viewership and offer Serious Watchers much more than just a front row seat by placing them in the center of the action."
The "B&Binge" contest will recreate iconic settings tied to The Crown, Arrested Development, and a third mystery Netflix series. Winners will then receive a two-night stay at one of the three locations where they can watch the show in question on 2018 LG 4K OLED TVs while being fully immersed in the atmosphere of the series -- complete with Easter eggs and memorabilia scattered around the room.
Here's a full rundown of the different experiences fans can enter to win per LG:
Arrested Development - Live like a Bluth aboard a yacht inspired by the Lucille, the Bluth's infamous yacht. Whereas Gob previously sunk the Lucille as part of one of his "illusions," this yacht is above water and safely anchored at the Marina in Los Angeles. Never nudes welcome. The entry period is open now and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on August 12. Winners will be announced on or around August 24.
The Crown - Relive the royal drama from a palace in Yorkshire, England fit for a Queen or King. Royals know no needs and neither shall you; a butler will be there to attend to your needs. There will be royal garb fittings, royal etiquette boot camp, and afternoon tea shall be served promptly at 3 o'clock. The entry period is open now and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on August 26. Winners will be announced on or around September 7.
Mystery Binge - This final location will involve a full sensory experience and is not for the faint of heart. Located in the depths of New England, winners will leave questioning if only seeing is believing. The entry period is open now and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on September 27. Winners will be announced on or around October 12.
Interested parties can find more details on how to enter the contest by visiting www.lg.com/us/bnbinge. Two grand prize winners will be selected for each location and each winner will be able to bring a guest.
