News Image
QVC has launched its linear TV channels on Sky Glass and Sky Stream, promoting a range of categories and products.

Included in Sky’s 600 channels range, four new QVC HD channels have been launched on the platform: QVC HD, QVC Style HD, QVC Beauty HD, and QVC Extra HD. The offering is the first in the video commerce genre to surface on the brand new Sky streaming services.

Already a customer of Simplestream, QVC chose the London-headquartered, leading technology vendor to power live stream encoding, playout and distribution within the parameters set for Sky Glass. The service allows end-users to consume content without a satellite dish and simply through a Wi-Fi connection.

Simplestream's Technical Director, Ashley Horne, highlighted: "It’s great to be able to help one of our existing customers reach a new platform, especially one that is focused on high-quality content distributed over IP. The fact that services like Sky Glass and Sky Stream are now considered as a key means to reach audiences marks a significant step forward and a tangible moment of change in the market."
