Shop LC, formerly known as Liquidation Channel and The Jewelry Channel, is an American cable television network based in Austin, Texas which mainly specializes in selling jewelry. The network is a subsidiary of the Indian-based Vaibhav Global Limited.
The network's reach is approximately 77 million households in the United States. The network sells inventory in a reverse auction format. It additionally airs late nights on the American Spanish-English network LATV through a time brokerage agreement, and, despite Shop LC being mainly a cable channel, has 39 over-the-air affiliates in mid-to-major markets through digital subchannels. The channel primarily sells jewelry, along with fashion accessories such as scarves and handbags.
Shop LC was originally launched as The Jewelry Channel in 2007.
In 2009, The Jewelry Channel was renamed as Liquidation Channel and switched over to a discount liquidation model in 2009 due to a lack of demand for luxury items in the Great Recession, and to reduce confusion with the already-existing Jewelry Television.
Jewelry Television sued Liquidation Channel for infringement of a reverse auction patent in June 2013. In October 2015, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board invalidated Jewelry Television's "abstract ideas" patent based on the previous Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International ruling. On May 28, 2015, two customers sued the channel over falsely advertised discounts.
On January 9, 2017, Liquidation Channel officially rebranded itself as Shop LC; it had already removed all uses of the Liquidation Channel branding in full throughout 2016, branding solely as "LC". The meaning of the LC abbreviation was also changed so the channel's name now stands for "Shop Low-Cost".
