Time Warner Embraces dotTV Domain Name ‘TNT.Tv’

TNT – home
New York, NY– Cable TV Channel TNT.Tv, owned by Turner Broadcasting (Time Warner), strategically uses the extremely rare three-letter dotTV domain name ‘TNT.Tv’ for TNT’s official Internet TV Website. New York-based Time Warner Inc., the world’s largest entertainment media giant, takes advantage of the intuitive dotTV domain name to internationally brand their big time Internet TV property- TNT.Tv.

Time Warner recognizes the power of cleverly naming and branding TNT with dotTV versus dot-com for Internet TV. TNT.Tv’s branding strategy is an ingenious, global marketing move. The term ‘TV’ is universal language spoken and understood by all or most of the world’s population.

2009 Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., A Time Warner Company.
TNT.tv is part of the Turner Sports and Entertainment Digital Network.

Pay Internet TV

Bewkes Pushes TV Everywhere — As Long As You Pay for It – Advertising Age – MediaWorks NEW YORK (AdAge.com) — Time Warner’s CEO- Jeff Bewkes hopes to put more TV on the internet, but he’s going to make consumers prove they’ve paid for it.
Time Warner, the largest owner of cable networks including TNT, Cartoon Network, CNN and HBO, sat back and watched as broadcasters such as ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox tried to sort out the distribution of TV on the web. But now Mr. Bewkes, Time Warner CEO, has a plan to put all cable programming on the web in places such as Hulu, MySpace, Yahoo TV, or even YouTube. Of course, there’s a catch. To get it you’ll have to prove you subscribe to pay TV through cable, satellite, or telco. – AdAge.com
