Pinterest hops on the live shopping trend with Pinterest TV

From The Verge: Pinterest is diving deeper into the e-commerce game with its upcoming shoppable live series, Pinterest TV, which is set to debut on November 8th. Each episode will star a creator from the platform, airing Monday through Friday at 6PM ET on iOS and Android. Shows will cover different topics every day, ranging from fashion, beauty, home, food, and more.

On Fridays, episodes turn into a QVC-style shopping show, where viewers can purchase exclusive products from different brands, such as Patagonia, Crown Affair, Allbirds, Outdoor Voices, Mented, and Melody Ehsani, using special discounts. Some Pinterest-exclusive shows are already in the works, like Christian On, in which fashion designer Christian Siriano will replicate the most popular fashion-related searches on Pinterest. Meanwhile, Monica Suriyage and food creators from Pinterest will help rescue failed holiday dishes in Unfail My. Other confirmed shows are planned with makeup artist Manny MUA, Olympic athlete Tom Daley, and comedian Robyn Schall.

Every episode will be recorded and available to watch via the TV icon in the top-left corner of the Pinterest app. During the show, you’ll be able to ask questions in the chat and interact with hosts.
