    I talked to them recently and evidently everything is on the QT until the press release. Its unfortunate and I wonder if that market segment is just not doing well or if this is a sign of the times.

    Shop at home tv shutting down - Payment?
    What will happen to payments once they shut down.

    Will we get our commissions for the last month (May or June) ? Any one from Linkshare clarify it for us?

    Thanks. Sent an email to Gregg.

    If shop at home closes, does linkshare still get the payments for us? Can someone from Linkshare let us know.

    Thanks

    Saved at the last possible moment. I'm just not sure what this means for their affiliate program though.
    A fast-growing Knoxville company has scooped up assets of the struggling Shop At Home television network in Nashville and plans to keep it going as a new, smaller enterprise.

    Jewelry Television, which has more than 2,000 employees in West Knoxville and posted $390 million in sales last year, will pay $17 million to the E.W. Scripps Co. for Shop At Home's building and real estate, satellite uplink facilities, information technology systems, call center, Web site and production studios.

    As mentioned earlier in the thread, Shop at Home TV (now Network LLC) is not shutting down.

    Jewelry Television has taken on our contracts and will be taking control of the program. They have large plans and hopes for the affiliate, search, and broadcast channels.

    As for the affiliate programs, Jewelry Television is on CJ and Shop at Home Network LLC is remaining on Linkshare, as they are under contract for a fair amount of time, it is unlikely that large changes will occur.

    However, one change will be that a new affiliate manager will be in place, as I was a Scripps Shop at Home TV employee.
