Will 2011 be the year of .TV? With tons of recent technology involving television and Internet convergence .TV domain names are becoming more an more appealing for end users and investors alike.
TV Apps were a big focus during CES 2011 in Las Vegas earlier this month and there are lots of start-ups and partnerships in this space forming that use .TV domains. I recently read on AllThings.tv forum that Flingo.tv, possibly the largest TV App publisher in the world just announced a partnership with Adap.tv which will provide monetization to the Flingo platform. Other popular TV app marketplaces using .TV domains include AppMarket.tv and Apps.tv. More support for the theory – If it’s video related – .TV is your extension!
