The Shortlist: 2020 European Readers' Choice Finalists

Article Featured Image

We've counted all the votes, and we'll be announcing the winners of the 2020 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards in the Autumn issue of the European edition of Streaming Media magazine (as well as right here in mid-September). This year's 12th-annual awards saw nearly 200 products nominated in 15 categories, and voters cast more than 6,000 votes.

Defining these categories is always a delicate balancing act—make them too broad, and they’re meaningless; make them too narrow, and we’d need hundreds of them to cover the gamut. Each year, we evaluate the categories to make sure they’re as representative as possible of all the companies in the streaming media market, then open up the call for nominations. This year, we also drew a line in the sand and only considered companies with headquarters in Europe and the UK. (We are accepting nominations for companies based in the U.S. and rest of the world in our U.S. Readers' Choice Awards until 20 August.)

In the meantime, here's the shortlist of the finalists—the top three vote-getters in each category, in alphabetical order. Check back next month for the winners, and make sure you're subscribed to our weekly Streaming Media Europe Xtra newsletter to make sure you get the news first.
