Major media players are using rare, easy to remember 3-Letter (3L), short dotTV domain names as online brands such as TNT (TNT.tv), Major League Baseball (MLB.tv) and the National Hockey League (NHL.tv). These companies exemplify an awareness to adapt to change and technology and will prove to be visionary pioneers branding their video sites online for online video and Internet TV. In Europe, Viacom’s Music Television European is branding a dotTV video site with MTV.tv and last but not least famous sports network ESPN has embraced dotTV and 3D with a smart choice using ESPN.tv!

Online video and dotTV compliment each other and make perfect sense as online video sites and Internet TV take center stage on the web and the mobile web. Online media is growing fast and becoming richer and faster with higher speeds and new technology breakthroughs including 3D TVs!  Premium dotTV domain names are intuitive, memorable, brandable and universal in all languages.

Greater New York Media Online Investments

Long Island, NY– Rarity means value out on Long Island and that is an understatement. How many high quality domain names are there for Greater New York Media? How many for Long Island? How many great domains are there for your niche industry?

Frank Schilling, a domain investor maverick, has a way with words in his assessment on the scarcity of meaningful, descriptive domain names that rarely hit the market in the many different verticals in business. The cream of the crop names are long gone Schilling says, and he elaborates by saying “Even if you back-up and cast as wide a net as possible, our decade of research and experience reveals perhaps 5–7 million words, numbers and phrases which ultimately have practical utility as a domain name. As you dig deeper, you begin to discover that perhaps 100 domain names or less make a meaningful website or descriptive-name for any given niche topic, with perhaps 5 or 10 being of very-good or excellent quality. When you consider the hundreds of millions of companies and individuals which want to control their own destiny and enhance the location of their website, there simply are not enough “good” names to go around.” (NAMedia)

Long Island and Greater New York media has how many category defining domain names? LongIsland.com (Website Since 1996) comes to mind first intuitively for Long Island. Amazingly, LongIsland.com is on auction Saturday January 23, 2010 at 1pm EST at the TRAFFIC Domain Conference in a competitive live domain auction held in Las Vegas: RickLatona.com. Rarely does a category geo-domain of this caliber trade in the open market. And how about the scarcity of a name for Long Island TV? LI.tv is your answer.

How many 2-letter combinations are there for any domain extension? Less than 1,400 based on a 26 letter alphabet and this clearly is evidence of the extreme rarity of a 2-letter domain. It is no wonder short 2 and 3-letter domain names have been such high selling domain assets. Growing up on the Long Island Sound we listened to LIR (Long Island Radio) while driving down the LIE (Long Island Expressway) or boating on the LI Sound so “LI” is ingrained in the minds of Long Islanders and the Tri-State Greater New York area’s population in the area of 14,000,000 (14 million). LI.tv is memorable. LI.tv is ideal for branding, co-branding or as an online video extension. LI.tv is a golden opportunity to stand above the crowd.
  
LI.tv is available for purchase or joint venture.
