Christmas programming…disgusted

It seems, despite the opinion of so many for many years now, that Christmas is all about the gifts, and the true meaning has been dispensed with. How very woke of you! I am fully understanding of the fact that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but at the very least, there was respect in this regard. Your airing of repeat shows to make a buck has me turning my back on you as a shipping option. Shame on you!

Sorry it makes you " disgusted", but QVC is a retail business, not an entertainment channel.  With all the talk about they are doing financially right now, they are doing the right thing by driving sales.   There are plenty of other channels showing holiday programs.

I agree, I for one don't want to see qvc Christmas shows they used to do. Don't  care about their families, their recipes,  and most importantly don't want to be read to. I watch qvc to shop, nothing else

@Moonie Sweetie, it's a shoping channel, not entertainment.

 

Shop somewhere else and save keyboard time by griping here.

@Moonie  Your perspective is puzzling. It's a shopping channel!  You're mad because they feature shopping opportunities as repeat presentations even on Christmas?  No one says you have to order  if commercial transactions on Christmas Day offend you. 

Do you think Macy's is putting on a Christmas pageant instead of selling sweaters or perfume?? Seen any crèches or other Christian symbols of the holiday on display for tradition's sake, but not for sale at Target? 

If you want Christmas content, there's plenty on TV that's festive, religious, romantic or lighthearted.  QVC exists only to "make a buck", as you put it. What part of that should be religious or respectful of the meaning of the holiday? It's just routine programming. And what makes you think a channel dedicated to retail selling is sacrilegious by continuing to sell?  

Change the channel. You clearly don't understand why QVC is in business.

I tend to agree with the OP.  I was just thinking how I miss the old QVC Christmas.  I enjoyed watching the different segments.  And, IMO, QVC has long ceased to be a "shopping" channel and has morphed into a pseudo "entertainment" channel.  For one day it could cease pushing its overpriced, redudant items.

I'm sure those cooking segments, reading of stories, and all the family get togethers cost money to produce and take an incredible amount of time. Probably not worth the effort for the few people who watched them. QVC is just like any other online retailer in that if I want to purchase something today I can, if not that's ok too.

QVC "entertainment budget" this year went into sponsoring The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall.
