A TV home shopping channel, which is actually quite good. It sells such things as jewellery, trading cards, signed comics, beauty products and cameras.

Each day there is an item selected to be 'Today's Special Value', which is at a lower price than usual for one day only. Watching QVC is addictive, as you never know when a bargain printer or watch will appear onscreen.

If you see an item you like, you can order it on a freephone number, or from an Internet site. There is also a number you can ring to come through to the studio and ask questions about the product.

QVC presenters enjoy reading out item numbers over and over, and shouting "Limited Stock! Order quickly!"
