HSN is going to lose me as a viewer
I watch almost only after 11pm (CT). Mostly I will watch from 12MN to 4AM if I do watch. Which is less all the time.
The hosts are, for me, at least, virtually unwatchable. Helen and her air swallowing, mouth noises, coughing (does she have asthma?) everything is a joke. That really wears thin.
Shannon Fox with the baby girl voice, ooohhhhing and ahhhing over everything, the gasps………..!
Amy with her heavily accented English is just too TIRING to try to listen to. A public speaker (that’s what hosts are) should be EXCELLENT in their speaking and communication skills. She is NOT. I think she knows English (that’s what we speak in the USA), but cannot articulate. It wears me out to listen to her. HSN should get GREAT hosts, not affirmative action ones. She is lovely, but her language skills are not appropriate.
I am not being mean. I am a customer and they are about to lose me.
As long as this remains the lineup, I will either watch QVC or Investigation Discovery Channel. Or I just will go to sleep earlier.
Obviously HSN doesn’t NEED my business!
Well, here I go,.I am here to buy…I want to know all the minor details of the product
as well as major…I’m not here for "fun", I don’t need the "cutesy" play of hosts, I would
like to hear everything the vendor has to say, and I don’t need those same words
repeated by the host. As it is, the vendor is interrupted so much we don’t always hear
what he has to say. I’m more interested in electronics and most of the time we don’t
hear all the details of the item. They just keep repeating the same things over and over
and the minor details are never discussed and those of us who are not too tech savy
really need to know all the details. I know they have only so much time to sell the product
but if they didn’t keep repeating the same details, they would have time to tell all about
the product and then perhaps we woudn’t have to send back because it didn’t have the
details we wanted. NOT EVERYONE has a computer to check out the product for details.
I seldom watch any shopping channels. In over 25 years I have never order anything during host presentations. When I am interested in something, I check the video on line, and or read the detail descriptions.Check other web sites. With the exception of a few hosts, many leave out key details. In my opinion Mr.Bill Green gives and shows the jewelry better than any of the hosts @ HSN.
Daisy001 you are entitle to your opinion, whether others like it or not. Not every thing can be rosy, or put into words that the majority of people will agree with. The hosts can take it, they knew or should know that not everyone will like their style, whether it’s their voice; cloths or their presentations.
For the life of me, I cannot understand why people post only to chastise another poster.
What a bore! Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and this is mine. I don’t necessarily watch for entertainment. Fact is, if people don’t watch, HSN or any shopping channel doesn’t sell. So, the hosts better be okay with the viewer/shopper.
Since I am mostly a late night viewer, I can say there have been GOOD hosts at night. Tamara is an excellent host. Adam started at night and I liked him. There have been others who aren’t there anymore.
I may be only one poster, but I would BET that others feel the same way, since none of us are actually THAT unique! And I know that HSN has people reading this board, and I bet one of the reasons is to read opinions. And it would be wise.
THANKS for posting Your Opinion, Daisy001!!!
Helen’s constant hacking and choking is really annoying. This sounds like a petty point, but it isn’t. It’s offensive to listen to someone’s deafening cough when you’ve gone out of your way to tune in to hear the details of an item. All you can hear and focus on is that loud cough. Worse yet, her cough sounds booming because of the mic. And, the mic is never cut when she goes into her hacking rant. It’s tantamount to coughing in someone’s face. I think for the viewers’ sakes, the mic should be cut when the coughing begins.
why post a mean comment,just dont post on a thread that bores you
I have asked several times why do they have sweepers, leaf blowers, rug shampooers and everything that makes a loud noise late night? I get to turn HSN on after everyone has gone to bed but then they have these loud stuff on that I have to turn the chanel
This AGAIN? What a bore. Turn the channel… it’s that simple.
HSN hosts exist to make sales as the purpose of HSN is to make money — not entertain us or alleviate our boredom. to ch
These hosts obviously make sales and continue to do so. As long as this occurs, and HSN sees revenues, the reality is that the complaints of a handful of individual on message boards that represent only a tiny percentage of shoppers will not matter.
If you find these particular hosts annoying or unwatchable, perhaps you may wish to change the channel to find something more to your liking.
I am not being mean; I am being realistic.
I feel the same way this is why i stopped watching the late shows. it went from bad to worse when the hired Lesley i cant understand a word that comes out of her mouth her accent is way to heavy.
I understand that every host isn’t for all of us. I could see not liking one, but all 3 of them? It may be that you’re tired or something else. I’m not trying to be mean either Daisy. Please don’t think I’m being sarcastic. The other night I posted about 4 things here and realized I wasn’t feeling well. They were all negative.
I think you are right they would be expensive. I have never seen stamps zodiac ones for sale lots of moon and stars and goddess ones like the one I made.
I am going to make a sun one too and see how it comes out. I have a sun design in my scan n cut it is two parts so I will have to see how it works out.
Thank you again my friend:smileyhappy:
Your HSN friend,
I noticed that too! That can be a problem with the Cricut machine — but it looks like the Brother Scan n Cut is up to the challenge!
