QVC Launches Second Broadcast Channel, QVC PLUS

WEST CHESTER, Pa. , Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- QVC, the global leader in video and ecommerce retail, announced today the launch of a second broadcast channel, QVC PLUS™. QVC PLUS will maintain the QVC brand and television experience including shows, exclusive products and program hosts, airing on a three-hour delay of QVC's current live broadcast.

"One of the secrets of QVC's success is that we offer customers the joy of discovery," said Mary Campbell, Senior Vice President, Multichannel Platforms at QVC. "QVC PLUS provides an additional discovery experience for our customers, and more ways to view our unique, ever-changing curation of people, places and finds."

The new channel will provide the same seamless customer service experience as QVC's primary channel, providing onscreen graphics indicating that it is a pre-recorded show.

Future plans for QVC PLUS may include special programming shown only on the channel to further expand QVC's offerings. QVC's international operations in the UK and Germany have offered multiple broadcast channels for some time now, some dedicated specifically to QVC's prestige beauty offerings.
