As we close out 2008, we look to our most-read stories of the year, a list that nicely highlights all the different things happening in online video: shows, stars, tech; companies large and small. (Of course, we couldn’t legitimately call ourselves a blog without a bread-winning Top 5 list and a good old-fashioned rant.) But seriously, this year’s top 10 stories show a more mature industry than last year’s list, by including news about popular web shows themselves, as well as tips on where to find things that are actually (well, most of the time) officially streamed online, rather than posted illegally.

  1. NewTeeVee’s Top Ten Posts of 2009 Thursday, December 31, 2009

    [...] NewTeeVee’s Top Ten Posts of 2009 Another year is almost in the books, which means it’s time to look back at the stories that got the most eyeballs on NewTeeVee over the course of 2009. This year, Michael Jackson and Barack Obama were big draws, as one might expect. But two other things stand out: the growing popularity of Hulu (and desire of international viewers to check it out), and the importance of live events online, as people searched for streams of the Presidential Inauguration and Jackson’s memorial service.
