Our subscription research service GigaOM Pro just published its list of Connected Consumer winners and losers for 2009, and while some choices may be obvious, there are actually a few surprises on the list. For instance, Hulu is listed as a winner and a loser, due to its rapid rise in 2009 and its inability to capitalize on that popularity by actually monetizing content. And Prime View International — a company that very few people have heard of — is on the list for being the supplier of e-paper displays for all the big players in that market.

With that in mind, here’s the full list of winners and losers:

Winners

  • Prime View International
  • Vizio
  • Hulu
  • Boxee
  • Apple

Losers

  • Hulu
  • Nintendo
  • Blockbuster
  • Sony
  • Blu-ray

For more detail and the reasons why each selection was made, check out the full story over on GigaOM Pro (subscription required).

In the meantime, who do you think the winners and losers of 2009 were?
