It’s Friday, that means time for some .TV news and highlights!
Richard Kligman recently rolled out Parked.tv which offers domainers a WordPress theme/site hosted on Parked.tv servers. The WP theme is videocentric so it’s perfect for ‘parking’ .TV domains. You can integrate your adsense code and choose videos that will appear on your channel via youtube api. This brand new service is still in beta testing, Richard is still working out pricing details.
Highlighting a few sales that are going on. Aron Meystedt of XF.com recently listed Scores.tv for sale at NP, current high offer is $1,000. Swap.tv auction finally finished with a closing bid of $2,400 – Mike Berkens was not the winning bidder. Not a .TV domain but relevant, DomainConsultant.com has StreamingTV.com in auction at BoxCar, the current bid is $2100. Also, as I reported last week, Tourist.tv sale was confirmed by sedo at $1,300.
GoogleTV was announced earlier this year at I/O conference but G has just recently updated their GoogleTV page. They are seriously getting ready for launch in 2011.. with big boys like HBO, NBA, CNBC and CNN already working with Google getting ready for launch. This will have positive effects of pricing in the .TV space, imho. Google! please stop forwarding Google.tv to Google.com and use it for the homepage of the GoogleTV already!!
