Qvc 2 and Qvc 3 now a subscription channel on Comcast!

What a surprise today to find that Q2 and Q3 now require a subscription to view on Comcast cable in my area (Atlanta)! Bad move QVC - pay for view for a home shopping channel??? Get real!

@rustygirl I’ve never once even looked to see if either is available in my cable offerings.

 

i suspect there are too few viewers/buyers for the company to pay for the cable time.  I wonder how long their contract with the cable companies lasts.  I won’t be surprised to see those channel disappear completely when it does.  As you might guess, it won’t be a problem for me.

@rustygirl - You're assuming it's QVC who decided to charge for these channels.  It's just as likely it's something Comcast has imposed, if QVC doesn't pay them what they want to air these extra channels.

 

Comcast and other cable networks have been involved in these kinds of disputes before.

 

(We have Spectrum and haven't seen any notice of a subscription for these channels.  I'll let you know, if that changes.)

I'm in the Savannah area and just checked my Comcast Xfinity channels here and they aren't a paid subscription here.

 

It must just be some areas, depending on that area's contract with Comcast.

There is no way I would pay more just to get QVC channels.  If they happen to show up on something I already want and pay for, well that is different.

My cable is TPG Capitol---since I have the premium package no additional subscription required for Q2 and Q3.  I bougtht the premium to get TCM and be eligible for my Ultra Sports Tier....

 

You can stream these channels on your laptop, phone of PC... (not that there is anything worth watching except re-runs Woman Frustrated)......

 

@rustygirl 

 

Are Q2 & Q3 the only channels subject to a subscription or did a bunch channels get moved to a different tier??????? (paid subscriptions).....
