    Some of the members here have a few .tv names and are aware of the premium pricing fiasco that has been going on for quite some time now , this has hurt the extension to the point nothing was ever going to be developed because no one could afford the $500,000 a year on 'business.tv' overnight things have changed and all the premium names now have a one off price to purchase and then revert back to normal reg fees at renewal time

    There has been a buying frenzy going on and many good names have been snapped up , plus sedo are going to hold an auction on the 1st of april for some of the best premium names , it will be a very interesting auction

    Lately i am noticing a few tv shows have the email address in the .tv extension , it seems finally this extension will start to grow , as i said there a few members here that will find this interesting news

    I used to have Townsville.tv which I sold for a mere $350 years ago then abandoned the extension totally as I saw no long term future.

    Yes some endusers have embraced it but what it matters is the audience and good luck asking around what is ".tv"
