New HSN Arcade: Watch, Shop and Play all on the same Screen!

HSN is celebrating their 34th birthday in a BIG way! Not only have they started a new HSN Arcade where you can play games and shop on the same screen, but there are also thousands of dollars worth of giveaways available!

Here is what HSN has to say about their new arcade:

*In an unprecedented move to combine casual gaming with the ecommerce experience, HSN Arcade allows people to play their favorite games online while they simultaneously watch HSN streaming live in HD, view the item currently on-air and quickly shop the last 15 items aired…all on one screen.

*HSN Arcade integrates with Facebook® to allow players to easily share their scores and achievements with their Facebook friends.

*HSN Arcade hosts 25 games, including the exclusive Today’s Special Jigsaw Puzzle, Lights! Camera! Subtraction! (featuring HSN’s celebrities), Crossword Puzzles, Word Search, Mahjongg, Dimensions, Sudoku, Treasure Hunt, BlackJack and more.

*Celebrities like Wolfgang Puck, Colin Cowie, Lisa Price and Wei Briant among others will play a role in some of the games.

*The games are FREE to play.

*Players can win prizes, including the Today's Special product or a gift card, by being the fastest to complete the daily “Today’s Special Jigsaw Puzzle” and receiving the best score.

*People can participate in tournaments with HSN’s celebrity guests, hosts and other players for the opportunity to win other prizes, such as gift cards and products.

*Winners can be announced via TV, online and mobile.

*HSN partnered with Arkadium, the largest provider of gaming solutions, to develop this new platform. Entertainment agency WME helped HSN frame the gaming opportunity with external vendors.

Sounds fun, doesn't it!?

During HSN's 34th Birthday Party, the daily giveaways add up to more than $100,000 and you can win one of eight once-in-a-lifetime a trip for two to New York City, including accommodations at The Plaza Hotel and dinner at Todd English’s Food Hall restaurant!

Be sure to stop by soon if you're interested! The Birthday party has already started and only lasts until the end of July!
