TV Shop is a teleshopping channel broadcasting 24 hours a day. It became famous in Europe by being one of the earliest FTA channels on the Astra satellite. The service was initially set up by Modern Times Group but in 2007 was sold to Guthy-Renker.

They offer a wide range of products, mostly training devices, that are always claimed to be 'revolutionary' and 'more efficient than common methods'. There is almost always a limited time offer, such as 'Call within 15 minutes and you will also get...at no extra cost!' and 'Call now and you can also order these...for just $15!' These claims are repeated more than once, sometimes even twice every five minutes.

Due to the constant claiming of the products being revolutionary, many are doubtful to these products.
