  1. I find it odd that .TV was not even mentioned given that in the quarter there was an auction & sale of over a hundred premium keyword .TV domains plus a simultaneous auction of NP members of .TV domains. Since then there have been numerous .TV domain sales reported so in total there have to be over 200 SEDO .TV domain sales in the quarter. Perhaps .TV just barely missed the cutoff?
