BEFORE CYBER MONDAY...
November 23, 2012  | By Eric Gould
 

BEFORE CYBER MONDAY... there was the Home Shopping Club. Before the internet — and internet shopping — HSC offered round-the-clock home shopping on your television (and still does today as HSN). In the '80s it was the first choice for discount jewelry and clothing, all from the comfort of your own recliner and the convenience of your home telephone. Launched in 1982, the channel (which went national in 1985) was obviously ahead of the curve as far as electronic shopping. After the network was sold (and made over into USA Network) it went live on the internet and introduced a still-running HDTV channel. –EG
