What is Joost?
What’s Joost? It’s free TV, with the choice to watch alone or with friends. Joost is packed with Internet tools such as instant messaging and channel chat, allowing people to really share the TV experience.
Joost TV has been launched and is looking like a neat little program.
When I first tried it out I was annoyed at how slow things were but left it a day or so, shut down some of my programs and tried it out today. It was a much better experienced and I was impressed with how good the quality was.
Although I don’t recognise many of the programs on Joost there’s lots of music related videos, comedy shows and sporting moments. It seems like the developer have much planned with video sharing and a developer kit coming out soo so some of you can create your own widgets.
Who’s Behind it ?
Joost or The Venice Project as it was known is bought to you by the team who created Skype, basically Skype does TV after they sold it to eBay for heaps of cash. Joost is a P2P TV and Video viewing platform in Beta. It’s a fairly small application and installed easily I my machine.
You can find out more info about Joost on their site or follow their Blog. If I had more Joost beta invites I would you send you one but I gave them all away earlier today.
