  1. Yes, it’s a corporate product, but I am jazzed to see HBO Imagine get recognized. Such a cool project.

  2. Wow just imagine if Hulu actually had a full library of content to view on demand, they would have won two Webby awards. Next year at this time they likely will have tons of episodes for each show but it will come at a price, so that may not be too Webby worthy.

    Good luck next year NTV (and GigaOM network), you certainly have my support!
