Watch & Learn

Showcasing a new product before an audience of millions is every entrepreneur's dream. Now two major TV shopping networks offer easier ways you can do it.

  • QVC's "Big Time With Phyllis George," which airs every Friday night, debuts American-made products that offer fresh solutions. "We're primarily looking at `make life easier' type products," says QVC's Scott Ellis, "such as a better spatula or a better way to make sure your tire's inflated." Think your product fits the bill? Send photos and information (no samples, please) to "Big Time," QVC Vendor Relations, Studio Park, Westchester, PA 19380.
  • Not sure your product is ready for the airwaves? Bring it to a free product fair held by the Home Shopping Network's HSN Institute for evaluation by product specialists and a chance to appear on the air. Fairs are held nationwide every month. For details and a vendor kit, call (800) 436-1010.
