‘Napflix’, the boring Spanish TV channel that’s fuelling siesta time

A Spanish video platform called Napflix, designed to put people to sleep with dull content, was launched this week and its founders are on the lookout for more “monotony and repetition.”
The free service, which launched this week, is designed to send insomniacs off to sleep – particularly between 2pm and 4pm, when the whole of Spain, it seems, retires to bed for siesta. But it’s available all over the world, for whatever time zone you like to nap in. Napflix also streams a ten-hour stopwatch, which literally counts down the minutes while you watch (simultaneously boring and depressing). The videos of falling rain, cooking rotisserie chickens and a rainy motorway really are dull – and we defy you to get through an hour of BBC Two’s old “Test Card” music without falling asleep.

“We choose the content based on how boring it is, or for the elevator music that sometimes goes with it,” De Tena told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
However – the whole of Spain does not sleep between 2 and 4 – at TKO Radio – we present to you Alex in the afternoon – with ex BBc´s Alex Trelinski – a show packed with cracking stay awake tunes! Tune in every day at www.tko.fm
