|QVC is multiplying|
QVC Style and QVC Extra will join Sky and Freesat from Tuesday 13th August, with the two channels also available via a connected red button portal on Freeview, using Arqiva's Connect TV platform.
The Connect TV service relies on a broadband internet connection and works on most 2013 Freeview HD TVs and receivers. Viewers already able to access additional connected red button streams on 4Music, Freeview channel 18 will be able to benefit from the new service. Last week, a licence to run a red button portal service on QVC Beauty appeared on the Ofcom website, indicating that the service will be available via channel 35.
Meanwhile, QVC has confirmed it is closing down QVC Active on Sky.
QVC Style will focus on fashion, accessories and jewellery while QVC Extra will offer viewers the chance to see the best bits of QVC. QVC Extra will air on the main QVC channel between 2am and 9am.
- Update 12/08/2013 21:00: QVC Style and Extra have now launched on Freesat channels 814 and 818. These channels will not appear on Humax receivers until early Tuesday morning.
