Viacom is one of America's largest brands and the ninth largest broadcasting company in the World. The company operates some of the most powerful brands in media including MTV, Paramount and Nickelodeon. With revenues of over $13 billion last year, the company is seemingly going from strength to strength. Aside from owning some of the most popular media brands, Viacom also owns an interesting array of domain names. Here, we have picked out our top ten domain names owned by Viacom in no particular order. MTV.com MTV, formerly known as Music Television, is one of Viacom's most recognised brands. Whilst its roots are firmly embedded in the music industry, lately, the channel has produced a number of reality TV shows. The domain MTV.com was originally registered by MTV VJ (video jockey) Adam Curry in 1993. A year later, MTV sued Curry to get the domain from him with Curry settling out of court to give MTV the name. Country.com Another of Viacom's most popular TV channels is CMT, also known as Country Music Television. As you might expect, CMT owns and operates CMT.com, but what you may not know is that the company also owns Country.com. This highly valuable one-word .COM, with an Estibot appraised value of $459,000, is currently redirecting to CMT.com. Atom.com Founded in 1998, AtomFilms was an entertainment network for independent creators of movies and animation. The company was acquired by Viacom in 2006 around the same time that Google acquired YouTube. In 2012, Atom merged into CC Studios and the Atom.com domain has redirected to the Comedy Central website for some time. Bet.com Gambling domain names have always been a popular and lucrative niche with domains such as Gambling.com and eBet.com selling for seven-figure fees in the past. One of the best gambling domains, Bet.com, isn't actually used in relation to betting. BET is actually the initialism for Black Entertainment Television, with around 75% of households in the United States receiving the channel. The network started out on BETNetworks.com before smartly acquiring the domain Bet.com around the year 2000. Jokes.com Viacom has owned Jokes.com since 2002, but reports suggest that the company didn't actually fully utilise the name until 2008 when its Comedy Central brand created a hub of text-based jokes and video clips. This one-word .COM is still home to a database of jokes. Interestingly, the singular Joke.com is owned by DigiMedia. Nick.com As well as being a common one-word and first-name domain, Nick.com is home to Viacom's kids brand, Nickelodeon. Launched in October 1995, Nick.com is a great, memorable destination for the difficult-to-spell Nickelodeon. Spike.com Up until this year, Spike a general entertainment channel owned and operated by Viacom. In an announcement made by Viacom in 2017, Spike was going to be rebranded as Paramount Networks. From Spike.com, the channel will now have a new home at ParamountNetworks.com. CC.com There are only 676 two-letter .COM domains in existence, but there are just twenty-six double-repeating names. Companies such as Johnson & Johnson (JJ.com) and American Airlines (AA.com) join Viacom in owning one of these prestigious names. CC.com is used by Viacom as the home of the popular Comedy Central brand. It's unlikely to ever come up for sale, but from an investor's point of view, this is certainly a seven-figure name. Film.com Film.com is another common four-letter word owned by Viacom. Unlike Nick.com, Film.com isn't being put to great use with a dedicated site of its own. The domain currently redirects to an MTV movie blog. From research, it isn't clear why MTV owns Film.com, but it's an excellent domain nonetheless. Interestingly, the company doesn't own Movie.com or Movies.com. Those domains are owned by NBC and Comcast respectively. StandUp.com StandUp.com is one of Viacom's most recent acquisitions. In an August 2017 edition of Detected Domains, we noted that Standup.com had been acquired by Viacom from Reflex Publishing, a company known for selling very few domains throughout their history. StandUp.com has obvious connotations with stand-up comedy. As you might expect, StandUp.com is being used to promote stand-up comedy on Comedy Central. -- The data here has been compiled with the help of DomainIQ's portfolio research toolkit.
