HSN way back in 1982 was founded by two home shopping pioneers like Lowell Paxson and Roy Speer. It was called then as the Home Shopping Club which was aired through cable channels such as Vision Cable and Group W Cable in Florida.

Because of huge success of this kind of TV shopping that runs 24 hrs a day and seen on cables and satellites in United States, Home Shopping Network needed to expand beyond its based-country. And that was the birth of Canadian Home Shopping Network. Being a sister network of HSN in Canada, the network was a success and later on bought by the Rogers communication group in 1987.
