History

ValueVision

ValueVision was originally founded in June of 1990 and began broadcasting in 1991.

In 2000, NBC purchased a share of the company.[2]

ShopNBC/HQ

ShopNBC logo, used from 2000 to 2009. The name was retired in 2013.

ValueVision was rebranded as ShopNBC, taking on the use of the entertainment enterprise’s peacock and logo, in November 2000.[3]

Due to economic uncertainty and NBCUniversal's upcoming possible merger with Comcast, reports surfaced that NBC would sell its stake in ValueVision; NBCUniversal formally announced that it would sell its stake back to ValueVision Media in May 2010, which would have forced a change in the channel's name,[4] but the company decided to retain the stake in June 2010 for the time being.[5]


ShopHQ logo from 2013 to 2015.

In May 2013 with ValueVision acquiring NBCUniversal's financial stake in the company, ValueVision announced that the network would be renamed ShopHQ.[1] "Mark Cuban's American Dream" in August 2014 then again in October was the first program designed by the new management under the Clinton Group plan to have more celebrity hosts.[6]

EVINE Live

On February 13, 2015, ShopHQ was rebranded as EVINE Live after the acquisition of an eCommerce product company owning a site called Evine.[7]

EVINE Live Inc. (EVLV) is a media company owning a television network, ShopHQ, and a TV station, WWDP.

In doing so, ValueVision renamed the channel as ShopHQ no later than February 1, 2014. Additionally, the company announced a May 4th quarter profit, the first quarterly profit in seven years.[1]
