Television studios are full of shocking secrets, from news anchors putting on makeup to hide their Sesame Street tattoos to actors softly kissing the camera when they think no one is looking. Take a peek into the secret world of television with today's Groupon: for $4, you get a tour of the QVC studios (a $7.50 value), located in West Chester, about 30 miles west of Philadelphia.
The QVC tour gives the television-inquisitive a behind-the-scenes look at how the shopping network tests its products and showcases them to millions of viewers. This guided walking tour whisks sightseers through the 58,000-square-foot studio, where they'll be able to watch live-television QVC programs from the observation deck, possibly even catching beloved on-air personalities such as Sandra Bennett, Rick Domeier, and the carpet. Once you've toured the national headquarters and corporate offices at QVC, you'll have a better sense of the tireless work, the top-quality technology, and the wizard-wrought television magic involved in each program.
As a world leader in multimedia retailing, QVC broadcasts live 24 hours a day, 364 days a year, and presents more than 1,150 products each week, from leather handbags and elegant jewelry to penguin-made ice pottery and free oxygen. Learn the ins and outs of television products and catch a glimpse of the nation's premier network shopping channel with today's Groupon to QVC headquarters.
All adult tour guests are asked to bring identification. Groups of 10 people or more require advance reservations.
- You don't have to be a member of QVC to enjoy the tour. It's neat just to see the live studio and how it all comes together. – VaBelle35, TripAdvisor
