    I use them for affiliate sites, as per Voucher Code TV, Football Shirts, Norwegian Cruises, but I only tend to buy them as a last resort, as the renewal fees are expensive. They do OK for SEO, but the renewal expense puts me off a little so they aren't "core" for me.

    ... also, sometimes the .tv works very well, especially for sites that will act like TV channels. One of the problems with the extension is that the registry identifies the premium domains and then charges very high renewal fees for them.

    You are welcome. If you have a laptop and could post a laptop review, that would be most welcome in return. Or review one of the other products featured.

    Well I was a .TV virgin until the other day and I think they have to be a certain type to be ok as a domain more than other extensions. Yes you won't be buying dozens of them, regg fee is higher than uk's but not too bad at £14.99 a year. (it's the .FM domains you want to stay away from at $95 a pop) :(

    You'll see a big move or addition with companies I think in the next few years using the .TV extension as an online media hook.

    I'm just in the process in building the site for my .TV domain and it should be live at the end of this month with a lot more testing in between. I know of a few people on Twitter that have .TV domains anyone else on here dabbled?

    Yep, the Islands of Tuvalu, they must love the internet! See:

    Tuvalu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Strictly speaking the .tv is the ICANN extension for Tuvalu, a lot of the admin stuff gets done by an American company I believe.
