TV Quick was a British weekly television listing magazine published by H Bauer Publishing, the UK subsidiary of family-run German company Bauer Media Group. It featured weekly television listings running from Saturday to Friday, and began publication on 30 March 1991[2] following deregulation of the UK listing magazine market.[3]

The magazine had its own annual awards ceremony, the TV Quick Awards, awarded on the basis of a public vote by readers of TV Quick and its sister publication TV Choice. The awards were renamed the TV Choice Awards following the title's closure.

The title's demise followed a 27% year-on-year fall in circulation between 2008 and 2009 according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.[4] On 12 May 2010, Bauer announced that it had commenced a 30-day consultation period with its staff about the magazine's future,[1] and the magazine ceased publication shortly after. It was suggested that the fall in sales was due to the magazine being caught in a no-mans-land between premium titles such as Radio Times and TV Times and budget titles like TV Choice and What's on TV.[4]
