Unhappy UK TV Domains - advice needed

I have a set of dot tv names that I figured would be good for the emerging broadband market in the uk. For those who are not familiar with the situation in the uk I should explain that there is an established format here for digital and cable TV channels that was started by the BBC - the most well known example being UK Gold. Everyone in the UK is familiar with this format and the BBC have acquired the dot tv versions of their channels - ukgold.tv, ukstyle.tv, ukplay.tv and ukhorizons.tv - although they haven't started using them yet.

My situation is that I own the following names in this same format (no copyright problems and no channels with these names yet) and I don't really know what to do with them or what they are worth. I am hoping that someone here will have some ideas, advice or suggestions. The names are:

ukmusic.tv
ukshopping.tv
uksex.tv
uktravel.tv
ukhealth.tv
ukgay.tv
ukweb.tv
uklearning.tv
ukarts.tv

I am thinking of selling them or renting them out to developers as I don't have the resources to develop them myself. Also I need to raise some cash. Any ideas???

I should add that the UK Music domain comes complete with a registered company UK Music Television Ltd.

Thanks.

Unhappy

Quite a lot of the services that you get in the interactive menus of cable TV (it's a sort of cut down version of web TV I think), use a .tv domain. So I guess you could sell one to a company that is developing an interactive service which will be made available through this medium in the future?

That sounds good. Has anyone got any ideas on how to find out who might be developing stuff like that?

Or is anyone here in this forum interested in acquiring some of these domains at a really good price??
