.TV for IDNs a bad idea?

I know now that most people are reg and looking out for IDNs in .com and .net first before any others due to the fact of still quite a no. of good names to reg. This leaves an area, .tv to look into.

Is it a bad idea to reg premium names in DOT TV? how about stuff relating to the .tv extension in this area? like documentary.tv, sports.tv and others. The price is a good deterent for many but gems for the few who can afford.

It depends what language you are looking into for a number of reasons , first reason is that in japanese & chinese most premium domains including ones that dont fit the dot tv ext. very well are long gone. Then the other factor is there is sufficient evidence that in certain sectors of the market .tv have a following , for ie: the japanese porn industry really seems to have alot of websites ran on the dot TV ext. , I have also seen a massive list of chinese dot tv in english that were said to be ran by end users. So i can give you a little insight on those two languages but if you are looking at other language you may have to do further research or find out from members here that have some knowledge on them.

ah ha. that would bring up on what is premium to the net community. If i wish to reg names like Buy.tv, soccer.tv, other kind of sports.tv, and other stuff related to TV in the various IDNs, in fact alot of 'premium' .tv for IDNs are still available. But the question is, are they worth the reg?
