September 21, 2022
QVC and HSN, specialists in multiplatform video commerce, have launched their interactive streaming shopping service on Samsung Smart TVs in the US.
The QVC+ and HSN+ streaming experience combines QVC’s and HSN’s five linear broadcast channels – QVC, QVC2, QVC3, HSN and HSN2, offering 50+ hours a day of live vCommerce content – with three digital-only linear channels and approximately 20 original, streaming-only shows, including programmes including Cooking With Curtis, with Michelin-starred-chef Curtis Stone, Total Look, which shows shoppers how to style a single apparel piece in three different ways, and QVC en Español, a collection of QVC’s first-ever Spanish-language shows.
“Our QVC+ and HSN+ streaming experience is our most complete livestream shopping experience, with virtually all of our programming in one package that makes it easy to peruse, discover and shop great finds,” said David Apostolico, SVP, Platform Strategy, Development & Distribution, vCommerce Ventures at Qurate Retail Group. “We already have many fans enjoying our content via popular FAST platform Samsung TV Plus. Now, Samsung Smart TV users can also shop and enjoy using our app, with original streaming content they’ll love. We look forward to offering our customers this new way to engage with us via millions of Samsung devices and welcoming new customers on Samsung Smart TVs.”
Samsung Smart TV users can use their remote to access the QVC+ and HSN+ streaming service in the app store. The app will have featured placement in the app store preview on the Samsung Smart TV home page for a three-month period.
The QVC+ and HSN+ streaming experience is part of vCommerce Ventures, a new business unit designed to accelerate Qurate Retail Group’s ownership of digital live streaming shopping, beyond QVC’s and HSN’s traditional multiplatform experiences.
