The new channel will strengthen the company’s TV business model, and will provide a 24-hour platform for QVC’s product ranges in one-hour themed slots and branded programmes.


QVC UK chief executive officer Dermot Boyd said: “With the launch of QVC Extra we now have three QVC UK channels broadcasting on Freeview, providing 12.3 million households with the opportunity to see our best products in case they missed them the first time around.


Through the carriage agreement with Comux UK, QVC Extra, which was previously only available on Freeview for viewers with internet connected TV, will now reach an additional 12.3 million households.


Comux founder and chief executive Ed Hall commented said: “We are delighted with the launch of QVC Extra and welcome them to the local TV multiplex. This announcement strengthens the commercial model for local TV broadcasters up and down the UK. By selling the capacity for two national channels, including QVC Extra, Comux is creating a long-term revenue stream for local TV which will help in ensuring its sustainability. The proceeds from the sale go directly to help fund a wider range of services for local television.


“This shows the Comux business model delivering exactly what it said it would, with public seed funding and private management enabling a long-term future for this new local TV initiative.”


In August 2013, QVC launched a new channel called QVC Style, offering fashion accessories and jewellery 24 hours a day, seven days a week. QVC Style is available on Sky, Freesat and Freeview, and is also be streamed online.


The channel was launched to give consumers "more choice and convenience".

On the 22nd of July 2014, EqualWorld a registered UK charity is launching the world’s first “profit with purpose” shopping channel broadcasting on SKY 652 and the internet.


EqualWorld will offer great products, great viewing and 100% of its profit will be used to make our planet a more equal world.


Imagine watching a small community in Soweto sewing together laptop bags in their homes as the community leaders explain how the employment created by this venture is helping their deprived community to become self-sufficient. Imagine then being able to purchase the laptop bag for £22, knowing that the funds are going back to the people you just saw making them.


Imagine watching a shopping channel and buying a flat-screen TV for £399 knowing that 100% of what you paid went to a good cause and then six months later actually seeing that project coming to life in a short uplifting documentary on the same TV channel.


Imagine buying a kettle for £19 and knowing it funded five eco-stoves in Madagascar. What is an eco-stove? Well you will get to know this via small documentaries explaining what they are and how they greatly improve lives.



With team members of The Genuine Gemstone Company donating their time and experience and partners donating their products or services, the vast majority of sales revenue will go the good. EqualWorld aims to keep its operating costs incredibly low, ensuring almost its entire turnover is utilised to further our mission of making it a more EqualWorld.


All products are being sourced in a unique way; either being donated by market leading retailers, brands, manufacturers or purchased from entrepreneurial social enterprises from disadvantaged areas around our planet.

EqualWorld will offer great products, great viewing and 100% of profits will be used to make our planet a more equal world. Together we can make a real difference to help people who are less advantaged than ourselves.



Equal World is a registered UK Charity and will broadcast on Sky Channel 652. Some shows will also be seen via The Community Channel on Freeview HD Channel no 109 and Virgin Media channel 233.


According to the Channel, ‘ Equal World will look and feel like the amalgamation of a shopping channel and an uplifting version of Comic Relief Everyone will benefit from this exciting new concept of retailing :consumers, retailers, brands, manufacturers and deprived communities.’


Equal World will offer great products, fun viewing and 100% of its profits will be used to make our planet a more equal world.
