    Let's say I have a brand, PCTutorialTV that is based on mostly video content. Since TV is already in the name, should I just go with PCTutorial.tv or go with PCTutorialTV.com?

    Just looking to see what some of you would pick, thank you.:)

    I think you should get both coz domains are very cheap and always go with .com as a brand domain.
    (use .tv as a redirect for some confuse visitors to main domain)

    .com #1 (but not "PCTutorialTV.com" just PCTutorial.com)
    .tv #2 by it later as a redirect or satellite site with adsense on it with links to your main site

    Thanks for the advice, the problem is PCTutorial.com is not available by itself, that's why I had to throw in TV in it


    Any others with their input?

    Well on that note then, go with .tv (but make sure they don't own a trademark over that name, or you may lose that domain regardless of the extension)
