QVC launches new channel featuring garden brands

Thompson & Morgan, Whetman Pinks, Hayloft Plants and Burgon & Ball are among gardening companies that will feature on a new TV shopping channel.

QVC Style and QVC Extra will launch on Sky, Freesat, and, for viewers with internet connected TVs, on Freeview on 13 August 2013.  This doubles the number of QVC TV standalone channels available. 

QVC Style, which previously broadcast as an interactive channel only available on Sky, offers the best of QVC’s fashion, fashion accessories and fashion jewellery, whilst QVC Extra will showcase "the best of QVC’s entire product range" including several gardening brands. 

Both channels will be on air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and QVC Extra will also be available on QVC’s main TV channel during night-time hours between 02:00 and 09:00.
QVC Extra will combine previously aired clips in one-hour long themed or branded programmes.  Only in-stock products will be featured.
At the same time, the QVC Active on Sky Interactive is being switched off.
