Home Home Tech 'World-first' interactive live-stream shopping show, Catch Live, starts midday, 12 September

If you know how many times Kim Kardashian was married, you could win a Nintendo in Catch Group's "revolutionary new way to shop online".

Combining quick-paced games with exclusive deals, the high energy show is the latest initiative from Catch.com.au, the company billing itself as "Australia’s largest independent online retailer".

Hosted by Brodie Young, of Quizmania fame, along with a changing roster of guests and guest hosts, Catch Live will "transform the online shopping process, giving viewers the chance to play to access exclusive offers and prizes."

Young said: “Simply watching may not be enough to get your hands on the hottest items.

“Viewers may have to use different skills like speed, guessing and general knowledge to unlock the deals. We’ll be almost giving away incredible products, like Apple Airpods – the prices will be unheard of.”

Some of Australia's most-loved brands that will be up for grabs in upcoming shows include Nintendo, Loreal, Dyson, Maybelline, Nars, Apple, Google Home and Lego.

The content of the 10-minute show will vary each episode to create an element of surprise and delight, harking back to the brand’s founding philosophy.

The show will air on random days; viewers can register their interest at the Catch Live website to find out when to tune in.
