Lonelygirl15 defects to MySpace for season finale

August 3, 2007

News: Today is the season finale for the hit Internet show “Lonelygirl15.” It started out on YouTube, by MySpaceTV scored a big coup in getting exclusive rights to air the season finale today. The “lonelygirl15” creators are running 12 minisodes today, one per hour starting now. The first video is up on MySpaceTV already.

You can see the rest of the finale as they are posted here.

Analysis: Score a victory for MySpaceTV. Rupert Murdoch’s folks must have given the lonelygirl15 crew a sweet deal. I’m getting more impressed with MySpaceTV, a serious competitor to YouTube. The lonelygirl crew usually post their videos on several sites, so I will be interested to see if these videos eventually go on YouTube. If not, a huge loss for YouTube.
