QVC has been broadcasting in Italy since 1 October 2010 with 17 hours live each day, seven days a week, 364 days a year: it is the only television in Italy with so many hours of live programming so far.

Present on the Internet with the website QVC.it, where shoppers can find the entire catalogue of products sold on the channel, QVC Italia has created a veritable community around its Facebook page.
QVC and its social commitment: QVC informa is a space in its channel programming devoted to information, dissemination and sensitization on topics of collective interest. One-minute informative spots are transmitted each hour of the day.
QVC has thus far hosted non-profit organization and associations like the Breast Cancer Foundation, Help the Children, O.n.d.a., Avis, Dynamo Camp, Enpa, Make a Whish, Doppia Difesa, FAI, CIAI, Susan G. Komen, Auser, and ABIO.
