Expo Channel is an Australian home shopping channel. It is owned by Direct Group Pty Ltd, a marketing and direct sales company based in Sydney, which also owns sister channel TVSN.[1]

History[edit]

In 2002, Optus TV launched Expo Channel on its cable television platform.[2] Today, the channel is broadcast 24 hours a day on the major Australian subscription television platforms, as well as Freeview in some areas.

Availability[edit]

Most Australian pay television services carry Expo Channel as part of their basic subscription package. These services include Foxtel, Austar and Optus TV. The trial datacasting service Digital Forty Four in Sydney carried the channel free-to-air,[3] as well as via the Optus C1 satellite.[4] Freeview channels Prime and GWN also air overnight blocks from Expo Channel. In addition, the company's website broadcasts a live video stream of the channel.
