    Guys you know how much I love .tv but when I saw on DNJ that Ducks.tv went for 12.5 I was shocked...
    Someone can please explain why?

    Only thing I could really think would be that this was definitely not a reseller sale. Had to be end user 100%... lol

    CSC corp has bought/is buying up all the nhl hockey .tvs up as we speak. I almost regged bruins.tv last year but dropped it before checkout. I think any type of mascot/animal .tv is a great investment.

    IMO, besides .com of course, .tv is the perfect platform to set up a live broadcast subscription site for sports teams, especially if you can get a one word team name. Example-

    cyclones.tv - Iowa State University official athletics media subscription site for all the sporting events online

    I think the thread was started to discuss the Ducks.tv sale, there is a separate .TV thread to post your names

    Wow I would not have guessed a sports team would be called Ducks - they are not the quickest animals. Googled it and found this:

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/ducks-tv-3-more-for-only-160.716892/

    As for video content, there is a lot of interest in the mating habits of ducks, and as for extensions, the male duck can have one up to 16 inches at the right time.

    .TV is a mystery - domains that don't even fit the extension sell for $5k+ while the two most popular pets in the world (English & Spanish) never get offers (even when you market them to end users).

    What the Duck!

    Seems amazing that so much is going into sports team names.

    I checked through my portfolio when I heard about the sports buys a few months ago. I discovered I had a name that was also the name of a big American Football team.

    It certainly never entered my head when I bought the name and I have to say I've actually had no offers on it in the past year.

    So funny, you buy a name for one purpose and it ends up being valuable for a completely different reason.

    But DUCKS - that is one interesting nickname - and one great price.
