Popularity contest

The VuNow PoD offers up a section called [Popular Websites]. A reader (hi Mike) wrote in asking where he might find a listing of exactly what sites VuNow is calling [Popular Websites] and if we might be able to provide some examples of the channels available in this section of the VuNow PoD.

Well, I couldn't find a real listing out there on the interwebs either - and so here is the first (as far as we can tell) definitive listing of [Popular Websites]:

This section in the VuNow PoD is broken out over 3 pages of icons - as NC-Jay found with the Live Internet TV listings, sometimes the icon doesn't actually match the content. While I didn't notice a case of this in the Popular Websites section, I've named the following exactly as they are described in when using the 'info' tool on each site. The numbers have meaning as well, also from that 'info' tool; the result looks like this:

NAME : [# of videos] / [# of subsections the videos are broken out into]

So without further ado, here's your list!

--------------------

There you have it - Popular Websites on the VuNow PoD as of 28 April, 2009 @ 10:00pm EST.
Note that the list changes from time to time (with growing frequency, in my opinion: Crackle and Joost were both rather new additions). Note that these entries link to the content offered at sites with those names: HBO, for instance, doesn't contain all of HBO's premium content, but rather the content they provide at their site (namely, trailers and such for their premium content).

Any questions about a particular site? Fire away in the comments section and we'll tell you what we can!

Also, and no promises here, but I hope to find a home for this list and to update it from time to time - maybe even link those names above to the websites where the content actually comes from.
