    Haha I see that. So he's the mystery buyer (or his production company SiCo). So much for non disclosure.

    Guys, just to clarify. Offer was in US Dollar, this time and also last time.
    I was thinking about the fact that 75K$ with euro at 1.4 on dollar meant to me 53K€ while 125K$ with euro at 1.1 on dollar mean to me 113K€, so more than double.

    Guess it was just a Xmas gift for him :)


    P.S. I am really happy that .tv sells for such a great price and I am even happy that I can see that something not: bjqs, dhahjwq, dslkhdsl, salkh , 18593, qp3085430, ajk., 362365, 21432 style sells these days

    Remember that Cowell is a TV and entertainment entrepreneur billionaire. One of his TV production companies alone (Simco Ltd) has revenue of £90k per week (circa. $132k), so this is a drop in the ocean to the billionaire.

    As for future usage there is a plethora of possible uses he could put it to, though my own guess would be the launch of online TV aimed of course at the USA market. (The market is huge and growing of course, see here: http://www.statista.com/topics/1514/online-tv/ .)

    It was a very smart move by Cowell IMO. He has companies producing the programs so why not go the next step and have one of his companies broadcaasting the programs and reap the financial benefit of all that advertising.

    Great news. This makes it the third most expensive .tv purchase publicly known along with fashion.tv and below that of golf.tv and live.tv.

    USA.pm anyone?

    Out of curiosity how much years did you have to renew the domain? Isn't it around 1k per year? Either way congrats on the huge pay day.

    This is a very interesting question, because in the years I've received many more offers for lower value .tv than for the high priced.
    For example I receive frequent offers for Link.tv or Toon.tv but very few for Usa. For Hosting.tv I received a 45K offer and just a couple more, where for Band.tv I receive a lot.
    I don't know what to think!

    Congrats Donnie, this is one of the biggest .tv sales ever!
    Not sure if this great sale will have impact on the extension but it will certainly work for you.
    Best, Monte

    Congratulations to your sale.

    If you already have received the money,
    there is only 1 week left to think about:

    income TAX related strategies

    If the cash is not yet in your bank account
    you may better recieve it next year.

    4l.com CHIPS
    to me look like a not to speculative way
    to postpone TAX payments.


    all the best
    Frank
