This year marks our 8th annual Streaming Media Europe Readers’ Choice Awards, and what a change since 2009. For those first awards, we had 12 categories, for which more than 200 nominations were submitted. In 2016, we have 18 categories and a total of 381 nominees.

More than 2,000 of our readers voted, casting a total of more than 14,000 votes. After discarding votes from obviously phony email addresses as well as votes by employees casting ballots for their own companies’ products, we identified the winners and two runners-up in each category. Many of the names are familiar, perhaps even expected, but you’ll find more than a few surprises in the list that follows. Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up.
