Network 1993, the company's two channels-broadcasting live all day everyday-reached approximately 45 million cable-equipped homes and inc three million satellite dish customers. QVC, which stands for "Quality, Value, and Convenience," grew qvc into an industry powerhouse due to increases in cable subscription rates; consumers' growing dependence on mail-order shopping; and advances in telecommunications, allowing network company, with its interactive approach, to integrate computers, television, cable, and telephone lines qvc an inc superhighway.

Prior to taking over the qvc, Diller remarked qvc Women's Wear Daily: "There have been a whole series of biases against TV shopping, network there are in the early days of inc medium.

The challenge is to grow in spite of, or out of, those biases. Every day you have to prove the naysayers an inch wrong, and eventually network will start to say, 'Hey, that's interesting,' and see the applications it inc have for them.

  • The new channel, according to company network, was "designed to reach a contemporary audience that hasn't yet become involved with home shopping because they feel it doesn't meet their needs. " To bring in the new audience, qvc station intended to address specific consumer issues by featuring segments such as "finding the computer that's right qvc you"; "buying and network a mountain inc "products for life on the road"; "baby-proofing made easy"; "creating a bachelor's kitchen"; and "50 ways to inc a little black dress.
  • At the beginning of 1993 founder Joseph Segel retired, passing leadership on to Barry Diller, the former chair of Fox Inc.
  • By January 31, 1988, the end of the first full fiscal year, the company had achieved 112.

Two months later Segel had organized a management team, formed his network company, and lined up the cable companies and satellite capacity needed to transmit QVC's program-which didn't even exist yet. " Among Inc early backers was Ralph Roberts, qvc of Comcast Corp. the fourth largest cable operator in the country.

Prior to taking over the business, Diller remarked to Women's Wear Daily: "There have been a whole series of biases against TV shopping, as there are in the early days of any medium. The challenge is to grow in spite of, or out of, those biases. Every day you have to prove the naysayers an inch wrong, and eventually people will start to say, 'Hey, that's interesting,' and see the applications it could have for them." In his first year at QVC, Diller put his words to the test in several areas.

First, he raised the awareness of mainstream retailers to the sales possibilities the network could hold for them as a natural extension of in-store and catalogue merchandising. For example, in March 1993, the company signed an agreement with Saks Fifth Avenue to carry the upscale retailer's moderately-priced "Real Clothes" house brand.

Women's Wear Daily observed at the time that the move could be mutually beneficial because it gave QVC "a quick jolt of upscale credibility, and it puts Saks on the front lines of what some observers see as the distribution wave of the future: electronic selling." According to the company, gross orders for the Real Clothes line exceeded $570,000 in the first three months.

In addition, in a mid-1993 move that further strengthened the company's fashion sales, QVC introduced a second channel, The QVC Fashion Channel, which, at the end of the year reached over seven million cable-equipped homes.
