After much deliberation, negotiation, careful planning and rehearsing, the big night is finally upon us! We will be going live on ITV at 00.08 on Friday morning with the launch of ITV's 'The Zone'.
This will be the first time we have ever simultaneously broadcast on two completely separate channels. It's technically a bit of a challenge but the show looks great and will be a load of fun. We will have a full hour on Thursday night/Friday morning to introduce lots of new viewers to what we do here at QVC.
We have a great TSV in the form of a Nintendo Wii package and our guest, Abbey Surgeon, and I have been dancing and practising to see if we can look good doing daft things! The Wii is such a great family machine and with the package we have put together, it's incredible value too!
Julia and I will launch the first 'Zone' on QVC and every night they will be on at various different times between 00.00 and 02.30.
The way it will shape up is the ITV's host will link to us and we will have a special live show with lots of products and guests in a newly lit and designed set. The pace is a little snappier than normal and the offers will be amazing.
It has to be said that we are all rather nervous and excited at the same time, and the atmosphere is buzzing. I do hope you will get the chance to join us just after midnight on Thursday 20th May, as QVC once again breaks new ground in TV broadcasting.
See ya there!
