    When you like what you do/invest in, the patience to wait for the right buyer flows naturally.

    Congratulations

    Nice to see a sizable risk purchase pay-off. When I think of my $100,000 paid in renewals over the years. Perhaps I should have had more confidence to take the plunge in the secondary market. Mind you I also spend the proceeds from sales far too quickly on lifes luxuries.

    Congrats

    Congratulations buddy on your sale. $12,400 ROI after 7 years is not bad. When you take out escrow fee and renewal that leaves you with $11,500+

    It is a superb name and congratulations on a great sale @tbwinpr ! It must take courage to invest a significant amount and hold it for a number of years, and I am so glad it paid off for you. If it gets listed on NameBio it will tie for first place in the 2019 .tv sales so far in the year.
    Congrats again,
    Bob

    TV (Tuvalu Islands) was one of those first cctlds really opened our eyes to the possibilities of 'appropriation' (and it was marketed as such) As we moved from terrestrial to cable to net. It's association is as strong as ever.. There's a little bit of confidence in that there TV extension. I don't think is ever going to go away.

    * myself, did have a few, sold one, abandoned the rest. ( $34 renewals) Doesn't stop me looking though

    Congratulations on the impressive sale!

    And I really admire your patience to make a bit of an investment in one name and hold onto the name until an attractive offer came along.

    Might I ask if other offers of some temptation to sell came your way over the years?

    Again, Congrats!

    I see a lot of TV advertisements using .TV, especially those grey market companies into payday loans and high-rate mortgages.
