Description:
The Shopping Channel is a Canadian English language cable television home shopping channel. The Shopping Channel is a division of Rogers Media. The channel is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. It showcases various products throughout the day of which viewers can purchase either by telephone or internet. TSC also distributes a catalogue twice per year and owns an off-air outlet store located in Toronto.

The only day that TSC doesn't sell any items is Christmas Day. Sale broadcasts are replaced by Christmas scenes with holiday music in the background. TSC usually goes dark for the Christmas holiday at about 4 p.m. EST Christmas Eve. They go back to standard broadcasting at 7 a.m. EST Boxing Day.

As with most home shopping cable channels, the products, such as jewellery and dresses, are mainly aimed at a female audience.
