Iv'e just been sent a link to Joost , yet another application claiming to offer TV on the net. I must say that it sounds almost identical to the Democracy Player which I wrote about before Christmas. I have signed up for the Beta version of Joost and await it going live. In the meantime, here's how they describe themselves on the website. I look forward to playing with it and seeing how it differs, if at all, from other applications.
What is Joost™?
Joost™ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. We're in the process of making it as TV-like as we can, with programmes, channels and adverts. You can also see some things that we think will enhance the TV experience: searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat. There are many more new features to come!
