It is very simply a sales technique.  While you may simply change the channel there are many that don't.  If those people continue to see the same item over and over they then decide that they want the item especially when the hosts start telling us how many have sold.  This tactic prays on the vulnerable and gullible.  

 

I can't blame QVC for showing the item multiple times per day.  Some presentations may annoy me but I have willpower not to succumb to the sales technique.

Well this "technique" doesn't seem to be working the proof is in the pudding as QVC's revenues and sales continued to fall well before the pandemic and for several years...

The TSV is the major reason I turn the channel. I didn't need to see 60 minutes of the Vitamix blender. I like the kitchen shows, but the seemingly constant and repetitive TSV on Sunday had me turn off QVC to never tune back in the remainder of the day.

Show a TSV full presentation as we are accustomed to at midnight and then at the top of the hour for 5 min. Anyone who wants a full presentaion can go on line. 

 

 


This is the perfect TSV schedule!

The TSV schedule used to be eight 15 minute presentations every day. I would like QVC to go back to that limitation.

Vionic shoes do not appeal to me whatsoever, and now they're well over $100?  I've looked at them closely at Dillards and can't wear the orthotic so I'm totally out of the loop.

We have complained and complained about the overly long presentations of the TSV and also other items.  How can they talk about a plain old shirt for 10 mins.

 

However, no one at the Q listens to their customers........sad.

Except for one host, who spends 8 of the 10 minutes adjusting her nose glasses!
