bid tv ... is a digital television channel based in the UK that runs daily live auctions. It was the first channel of its kind in the world, and has become popular for offering a laid-back, friendly approach to its viewers. Banter is created through the presence of "auction assistants" who help to demonstrate products, as well as informing the viewer of upcoming auctions. In January 2005, the channel was renamed Bid tv to reflect the fact that more of its auctions followed the price-drop tv method, meaning that bidders were only rarely bidding "up". Bid tv no longer broadcast any live rising-price auctions, only featuring an occasional pre-recorded speed auction. A new graphic was added in October 2005 to show the start price of falling price auctions. In August 2006, a new graphic was introduced, showing the bid tv website address and a falling arrow. This is shown as soon as the assistant has shown what is coming up next, and introduces the presenter.

I had a call from a bid tv agent stating that as I had not purchased from them recently they would give me a £5.00 credit as an incentive. When I attempted to use this credit they claimed they had no record of it. Consequently I cancelled the order and will not be shopping with them again.

Bid and Price Drop TV are a joke. Well, at least the presenters are especially Peter Simon is with his sub-Larry Grayson routine. He talks the most utter trash I have ever heard, everything he sells is "absolutely stunning" no matter how modest or crappy it may be and his fav phrase is "Not only" as he desperately seeks to convince how wonderful something is. OK, this can be amusing for a short while but when one buys an item and it doesn't turn up it becomes serious. You are sent to an indolent Indian call centre who are uncaring and unhelpful. Then again I've never known one that isn't. They charge £7.99 per item delivery but use the cheapest ... Read the complete review

My Mother bid an item last night around 9.30 pm, she waited up until 10.30pm for them to call her back, this call wasn't received until a wake up call at 1.15 am, from another country, she said "please call in the morning UK time", they called again at 1.30 am and again at 2.45 am.. My Mother is a nurse and needed to be up this morning a 4.30 am for a full days work. Mother called customers services on 08448116611 to complain, they said that the item (a fire) was so popular, they had so much response they put it on again at 12 midnight. So it looks like it must have taken them all night long to call all the early buyers up, my ... Read the complete review
