It's a tragedy!

 

Nevermind, there are still two(?) other dedicated shopping channels, plus a tonne of infomercials on the other stations to buy junk from.

I'm not surprised.

 

I was always baffled that there was enough of a market to support the overhead costs of one 24/7 shopping channel - let alone three.

 

If people are inclined to shop on line then there are many better options that spring to mind - Amazon, ebay, Aliexpress etc spring to mind.

Probably big margins on the things sold. I don't think the people shopping on them, are really the same market that buy things on ebay and amazon.
