QVC analog had chosen to move its signal to a different satellite. This change will take effect on October 31, 2019. The receiver they will require does not output the analog signal. (The analog signal includes the channels still available by plugging your TV directly into the cable line without a digital box.)
Our original timeline intended to keep all analog channels on the Essentials lineup (2-17) around until early 2020, as noted on each notice sent out throughout 2019. However, due to the network change requiring replacement of equipment, we will not be able to keep QVC analog. Any TVs without a cable box will need to have one in order to keep QVC, channel 9, beyond October 31, 2019.
If your TV currently uses a cable box, this change will not have any effect on your QVC channel 9.
On our newer cable setup, IPTV, we will be launching QVC in HD, channel 18, before the end of October. IPTV requires new cable boxes and includes enhanced features, such as whole-home DVR, the ability to record up to 4 shows at once, and access to On Demand content.
