* Current On Air Item – Product detail of the item currently airing live on HSN.
* Today’s Special – Available at an exclusive special retail price for the day.
* Verizon FiOS Deal of the Day – Exclusive to FiOS TV customers, a must-have item that has never been discounted before will be unveiled daily at a special rate.
* Last 15 Items Aired – Customers can go back and browse a list of the last 15 products on air.

Customers simply press the “C” button on the remote control to begin watching HSN on the right-hand side of the television screen; additional product detail from the categories above appears on the left-hand side of the screen.
