Lightbulb I bought my first .tv [ 买.tv ]

I bought my first .tv and ironically, the name I bought was (buy.tv) 买.tv

Do you think IDNs like this are worth the reg fee for .tv extension?

but they cannot deny the fact that TV is the most popular and well-known 2-letter combination on the planet. If you speak Mandarin you know what a TV is, Greek you know what a TV is what it means even if you speak no English.
Since TV is universal for television in ALL languages, I guess it may be suitable for a buy TV site or something. (CRT, Rear projection, LCD, Plasma, HDTV, Laser TV etc)

Or a site where people 'buy' what they see from advertisments on TV.

Or just a site to regg .TV names.

Have I just thrown away my bucks, since only .com and .net are popular for IDNs?

Yes, it depends on how the extension correspond to the term.

And TV is indeed commonly used in China. Hong Kong and Taiwan as well. Watching some of their shows for TV companies, TV is used quite alot off the tongue.

The single and plural are expressed in the same way. It is automatically understood as singular or plural when used in sentence form.

Most importantly for now, i guess the term has to be generic or highly related to TV to be popular, and of course valuable.

Hi, You are sitting on two Gold Mines. Do not worry there is no other replacement for these two word. They are most popular and most common, as strong as English keywords" sports and search". Wish you good luck with them. BTW, I have 搜.tv which is as popular as 搜索.tv. :)

tv never took off in the States and will not take off in China. Buying ccTLD is a better investment.

But all in all, tt's a .com world.
