Prior to its launch, "speed auctions" were a slot broadcast on bid tv (as bid-up.tv). However, when the channel changed its format to focus primarily on falling price auctions, the speed auctions became pre-recorded. In July 2005, speed auction tv launched, which took an all responsibility for bid tv's rising price auctions. As a response, the "speed auction" slot on bid tv was axed, and the channel featured recorded auctions from the new speed-auction tv. Since the launch of speed auction tv, bid tv has not featured any live rising price auctions.

In October 2005, the format of speed auction tv was changed similar to that of price-drop tv, purely focusing on falling price auctions. However, unlike sisters price-drop tv and bid tv, the channel sold its lots with a smaller quantity in each auction and in a shorter period of time, justifying the word "speed" in its name. The live broadcasting hours were still the same as the previous rising price format, and the pre-recorded slots were still being filled in with rising price auctions. price-drop tv (which dropped the dot from its name on 21 January 2005) is a shopping channel owned by sit-up Ltd and is focused on falling prices, using a form of uniform-price Dutch auction. ... bid tv (known as until 21 January 2005) is a digital television channel based in the UK that runs daily live auctions. ...
