July 18, 2023

QVC, the video commerce retailer, has successfully launched its linear TV channels on Sky Glass and Sky Stream, promoting a range of categories and products. Included in Sky’s 600 channels range, four new QVC HD channels have been launched on the platform: QVC HD, QVC Style HD, QVC Beauty HD, and QVC Extra HD. The offering is the first in the video commerce genre on the new Sky streaming services.

Already a customer of Simplestream, QVC chose the London-headquartered, leading technology vendor to power live stream encoding, playout and distribution within the parameters set for Sky Glass. The service allows end-users to consume content without a satellite dish and simply through a Wi-Fi connection.

Simplestream’s Technical Director, Ashley Horne, commented: “It’s great to be able to help one of our existing customers reach a new platform, especially one that is focused on high-quality content distributed over IP. The fact that services like Sky Glass and Sky Stream are now considered as a key means to reach audiences marks a significant step forward and a tangible moment of change in the market”.
