ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Throughout the month of July, leading direct-to-consumer content retailer HSN will host one of its most exciting birthday celebrations ever to ring in its 38 th birthday in style. The birthday bash will include never-before-seen partnerships, exclusive launches, celebrity debuts and a vacation giveaway of a lifetime!

38 years of fun and innovation at HSN will be celebrated with the launch of Margaritaville, HSN's first ever Friday Night Game Night fixed programming series, exclusive offers, special programming, HSN Arcade incentives and some of HSN's most exciting partnerships to date!

Following much anticipation, the fast-growing Margaritaville brand will launch on HSN on July 3 with a beautiful assortment of exclusive and curated products that capture the escapism of island living. Every Friday during the month of July, beginning at 5 p.m. (ET), viewers can enjoy 'It's 5 O'clock Somewhere' Margaritaville programming highlighting the branded merchandise that introduces the island mindset to every home. The collection spans across culinary, Home, Apparel, Electronics, Entertaining and Beauty, featuring exclusive products in every area.

HSN is hosting two summer giveaways to celebrate the Margaritaville launch. The ' Escape to Somewhere' sweepstakes launches today through July 31, giving participants the opportunity to explore the true Margaritaville lifestyle with an all expense paid, 7-day, 6-night trip to the Margaritaville Wyndham Rio Mar resort in Puerto Rico. For those who prefer to bring the Margaritaville party home, HSN launched a social campaign in June where Margaritaville fans were invited to share what Margaritaville was to them on Twitter and Instagram for the chance to win a Margaritaville Block Party for themselves and 25 of their friends in their hometown. The winner will be selected on Friday, July 3, during the 'Five O'Clock Somewhere' show between 5 and 8 p.m. (ET).

HSN will be launching the first-of-its-kind Friday Night Game Night on July 3 at 8 p.m. Between 8 and 11 p.m. (ET), contestants from the HSN Arcade will be chosen to play one of three games live on air, for the chance to win top prizes. Prizes during the month of July include branded Margaritaville merchandise and ten trip giveaways on Norwegian Cruise Lines' newest ship, Escape, where winners will embark on a 7-day Caribbean Cruise for two on the Norwegian Escape experiencing the sites from a Balcony Stateroom.

On July 13 and 14, HSN will launch celebrity chef and Cooking Channel personality, Kelsey Nixon , for the debut of her 'Kelsey Nixon Essentials' collection featuring a line of simple, smart kitchen essentials with a modern functionality and vintage aesthetic.
