This fall Google hopes to solve the disjointed relationship between the web and TV with Google TV. Using both Android and Chrome, Google TV is basically a search engine for your TV — integrating with your cable box and indexing however many hundreds of channels you have with whatever is available on the web. It lets you watch what you want when you want.
While this will no doubt have an impact on TV, some are also wondering what this means in the world of domains. For .TV it’s probably not too bad a thing. The idea of a one stop shop for your video content is essentially what the .TV extension is made for, and Google is taking the concept mainstream. This can only help drive awareness for the already popular extension and we think you’ll start to see it crop up in a lot more places.
As big believers in .TV we hope that with the best prices and best support you’ll think of Name.com when you go to register your .TV, and our new pricing should definitely help in that regard! Starting today we are now offering one year .TV registrations for the low price of $10.99! But wait..it gets better. If you register a .TV for two or more years, you get it for the super low price of just $9.99/year. Still want more? For the month of June you can use the code SHOWTIME for $29.99 .TV renewals!
This brings the pricing for .TV registrations within a couple bucks of .COM and breaks down the $10, $20, and even (at some registrars) $30 price difference that may have prevented you from jumping on the .TV bandwagon. With that barrier gone, now’s your chance to join the fun!
