    On 1/11/2018, Bloomberg TV published this on air interview with QVC CEO Mike George about their acquisition of HSN :coffee-read:

    Loved how he dodged the cable questions. :lol2: He says his customer is not cutting the cable cord but emphasized the other platforms, calling them “over the top platforms.”

    He sounds very upbeat about QVC/HSN’s future.  :good:

    They’re the third largest e-commerce player, which is super impressive. Amazon is number one, of course, and Walmart number two.  I think QVC would be better if it had some sort of shipping deal. The bike I would have ordered would have been $25 in shipping!

    This part is impressive! Had no idea the merger acquisition would propel them up to 3rd! It was nowhere near that separately :ladywink: This surely must help the image of television shopping :nod:

    This is the part I’m nervous about! When Q and HSN were competitors, they both offered great shipping prices in the last few years. I hope they do not increase the shipping now that they merged and not competing. I would definitely shop less if that happens :rolleyes: (so please don’t :laugh2: )

    Amazon and Walmart both offer shipping deals that are better than Q, and trust me, I can get almost anything from HSN/QVC on Amazon/Walmart. I’m not the only one who has accounts there, so surely they know this shipping can be a challenge. Let’s hope so!
