    Price Crash is back from 9pm tonight!

    It has created a stir on social media over the past few weeks and tonight is the night... Price Crash returns to TV after a near 10-year absence from your screens.

    Its return is brought to you by On Air Media who are responsible for producing various shopping channels including Cruise1st.tv (Sky 680) and PaversShoes.tv (Sky 669). The majority of the On Air Media team worked on the original Price Crash and have the blessing of its creator and shopping TV legend, David Ades.

    Derek Marks who was one of the original Price Crash presenters said: “it seems this is the era of great nostalgia returning to our TV screens so I am really excited to be part of this Price Crash reboot. We really believe that no one is doing what we have planned for everyone watching at home. We have some great deals and products that haven’t been on shopping TV for years!”.

    Price Crash originally ran from 2004 to 2008 and became infamous for its fun and quirky deals including Buy One Get One Free .....

      Default Closing Down Sale

      This is what it's saying on the channel. What a shame, it was an honourable thing to set up this channel in the hope of helping some very poor people.

      yes due to lack of sponsers supplying products, the website will continue, but of course lack of sponsors, means a charity cant afford to keep a channel going.

      it seemed to go downhil fast, with the auctions not lasting.

      hope kathyrn goldsmith and alex the presenters, can find more work, kathryn maybe with some proper training, could be a good presenter, she is young and enthusasti.

      I never really knew what to make of the channel.Some of the items seemed vary good value in fact too good and it was hard to see how the charities would benefit.

      The only surprise is that it lasted so long...

      If there was such a heavy reliance on donated products, why did they not attempt to line these up or realise before they went on air that companies were not as charitable as they assumed they would be.

      Also, why when they went live for 'Snatch It V2' and they sold so little did they then decide to employ a number of people to go live 12 hours a day - those people only informed they'd lost their jobs a matter of hours before they had to go on air with the Closing Down Clearance.

      Another channel to add to Steve Bennett's very long line of failed channels.

      is this why they have basically ran on 2 presenters, kathryn goldsmith, like i say with a bit of training, could fit in well at another channel, she is young and could maybe entice viewers of a age range to buy stuff.

      steve bennett, has said the equal world website will continue.

      a lot of this stuff in there closing down sale, ive never seen on air before.

      I don't know Steve Bennett but in common with most successful entrepreneurs he has had a few failures along the way. That shouldn't detract from the absolutely phenomenal success he has had and the fact that he has probably employed hundreds of people in his businesses, made himself a ton of money along the way, and now wants to put a bit back and help some of the poorest people in the world. Perhaps Mr Insider you can enlighten the forum with your own personal success story which clearly involves never having made any mistakes or suffering any failure? How many jobs have you created? How much money have you donated to charity? How much of your own time and money have you dedicated to lifting people out of poverty?

      Chad, well said. Some very pertinent comments and I agree it's easy to sit back, never try any new ventures ourselves and just snipe and criticise about what others do and if they fail at it. But it takes guts to put yourself (and your own money) on the line. Hopefully, like most of us, he's learnt from what went wrong, but I feel sure his intentions were good. A pity the venture didn't succeed. When you think of the 'sharks' that are daily appearing on our screens from certain other shopping channels, who seem to have no compunction at trying to mislead members of the public, reading out only part payments of prices as though it's the total price, etc. it makes your blood boil that they are even in jobs, while possibly some of the Equal World staff have no job security at present.

      Nice concept but poorly resourced and marketed. It was doomed to failure very quickly. I can think of a million of other ways to alleviate those in poverty. I have to say this venture in a shrinking shopping channel market was about the crappiest way to do it.

      i hope the presenters i see on equal world get more work, and the crew.

      presenters are youthful, maybe need more experience, but would rather see some young passionate presenter present, than some of the dinosaurs other channels have.
