As per a report:

Three men set a new world record for the longest television-watching marathon - after enduring an 87-hour stint over five days. Dan Jordan, Spencer Larson and Chris Laughlin achieved the honour during the Consumer Electronics show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.

 The trio, all from Las Vegas, watched programing from two TiVo Roamio digital video recorders that had been broadcast and recorded ahead of the attempt They were allowed breaks of five minutes per hour to use the bathroom or nap, in accordance with Guinness World Records rules for the category.

 While allowed to save the five-minute breaks, the longest anyone slept during the 87 hours at any one time was 80 minutes. They underwent regular medical checkups throughout and were allowed to change channels and eat and drink while they watched, but were not allowed to read or talk on the phone at the same time. For completing the marathon, the three shared a prize of $5,000 (£3,038) and received a package including a TV, TiVo Roamio with product lifetime service, iPad, Sonos system, gamer chair and a year's Netflix subscription.
