Time for another .TV update! Well, I keep getting emails from Fabulous.com encouraging me to ‘improve my online presence’ with a .TV domain name. Interesting that they have just recently added .TV to the short list of extensions that their registrar supports. The retail pricing at Fabulous is $49.95, with that kind of markup I doubt people are rushing to fab to grab their .TV name. Even if their vip pricing is half that, I still prefer name or dynadot where you can hand reg new .TV’s for approx $11 bucks.
Domain Name Wire posted about MLB.tv earlier this month, it just turned ten years old. Over the last ten years Major League Baseball has been using this name to promote it’s video subscription service even though it still redirects to a page on MLB.com. According to DNW it has delivered over 1.1 billion live video streams and serves over 1 million clips per day on average.
I have been continuing to grow my .TV portfolio as well. A few of my recent pickups: CarsForSale.tv, SmartScreen.tv, Ziplining.tv and Goth.tv (goth w. an investment partner).
Here is an incomplete list of some of the .TV sales reported since my last .TV spotlight post in at the end of June (thanks to allthings.tv, namepros .tv subforum and dnjournal)
