I don't understand how anyone could think this is a morally good thing? You're encouraging impulse buys. That's exploitative, but also bad from a capitalist perspective. Capitalism is supposed to give everyone the best product for them, at the best quality for their money. This tries to dodge that by hyping and driving up consumers emotions. How many people will buy things like this and regret it afterwards? or buy an inferior product?

Good to see Ashley back again on the channel. Talking about the topic of the video; such advertising doesn't justify the quality of a product. I think that Teleshopping is almost similar to gambling (You win if the product works satisfactorily or you lose if that product doesn't work as per expectations)

They choose shopping channel cause their products are inferior in quality, made of cheap plastic , less power ect . Then people who do not use internet buy it . Mostly older folks . They are hyenas...

Stupid. They sell legit name brand stuff, and demoed live for you. I've bought Sonos and JBL Pulse 3 speakers, a washable room rug that I washed in the washing machine at least 8 times a year for the last 2 years. Also, they are honest when they say they have limited quantity or sold put because, I've actually missed orders.

I never knew these TVSN channels still exist. Seems like a way to sell a product at full non-discounted price to tech-averse elderly people who don’t use Amazon.

Who watches tv shopping channels? Thought these were only watched by middle aged to elderly women. Not a growing market.

This very much feels like an ad to attract a younger audiences. You get to see the product! You're helping small, independent gadget makers! It's live, so you can trust it! So I'd say both of our opinions on shopping channels are right, they're only watched/used by older people, and the channels wants to diversify to a younger audience

Great video, Ashley and team! I never quite understood televised shopping networks. It always seems gimmicky and cheap to me. Clearly there's a market and target demographic for it so it's cool to learn a bit about the BTS.

The secret is you get to have the undivided attention from gullible people for a brief moment. People don't spend attention on ads during scrolling.

@harrymolyneux OP is the type of Big IQ person who thinks he’s immune to psychological strategies that work on “normal” people. Not coincidentally, they’re usually the same type of people who succumb to it the most.

Hilariously inaccurate. How do you think Facebook is so big? They sell ads. Do you think they got that big because their ads don’t sell get peoples attention? Source: I’ve spent thousands of dollars on Facebook ads

There isn’t a perfect solution - of course - but it has to come from those who watch and listen first. People have to comment on what’s happening and begin a discussion and then show what they value with their time/money. I don’t think that Ashley was going to far or pushing a narrative BUT I think the point was to present info and let people(like us here in these comments) think about what this type of platforming really means for society and the spread of info.

@Michael Pruett Who the heck believes anything Jones says? It's obvious to any sane person that he is comical even if he doesn't think so. What I'm against is to demand that Joe or any other popular figure to never invite anyone because they have different way of viewing things. Now I'm not talking about Jones specifically (I think he is way off on many things) but what I fear is, HOW do we set a line on what's ok and not? WHO sets that line? BASED on what? I would rather have a mostly free land of expression than a restrictive one where the restrictions are impossible to set fairly.

Michael Pruett 2 ਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
@Waves- I just re-read that article and I am not sure what point you are trying to make. Do you disagree with Ashely’s points about Jones? Or do you think the article is poorly written? What issues do you have with it? I would say it points our truths about the JRE episode with Jones and also provides broader context about the men with relation to politics/censorship/conspiracies/celebrity- Over all it seems like a straight forward facts based article.
