    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 .....

      Wee Diddy is one of the few that I can watch on that channel, and then only if he is on his own. I just want to see listen to the presenters, not the numerous attention seekers, Amit with his self importance have me rushing for the bucket....

      it's a double edged sword with Amit. Either he personally brings prices down, thus meaning that when a presenter is on their own, the customer is being ripped off.... or he adds no difference to prices and he is a lying shit. (my opinion)

      He's a buyer, yes? So his job is to source gems and metals and haggle for close out deals?

      So why is he setting prices anyway? If he's at some trade fair or whatever in the far east, does he still have to look to see if a platinum bond tatty necklace is selling or not on air, then ring in to tell the production team to knock a tenner off to try and improve viewer interest and shift it all?

      Because that's the impression the presenters give. And if that's one of Amit's jobs, why do the presenters and producers feel they can allegedly ignore him and give their own reductions? And if the presenters can apparently ignore Amit, WHY does he need to be on screen at all?

      The whole thing stinks

      It's a gimmick to make customers feel he is in a position of power and able to give them HUGE reductions because he is powerful.A while back they had Amitathon when he was on air all day.

      It's just another sales pitch. The presenters all do the " phone call to Amit for a special price" and come across like we should be so grateful to Amit. It doesn't work for me but must fool people otherwise they wouldn't do it.
