Yeah I am happy ! Last week I got an invite from Peter Elst for the private beta of JOOST. For everybody who do not know JOOST let me give some short introduction. 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. They are in the process of making it as TV-like as they can, with programmes, channels and adverts. You can also search for programmes and channels. Also You can do some more social features like chat. There are many more new features to come! A new way on interactive TV has been set 🙂
To have an idea what I am talking about let’s have a look at some screenshots :
Joost™ uses secure peer-to-peer technology to stream programmes to your computer. Unlike other TV and video-based web applications, it does not require users to download any files to their computers or browse through complicated websites.
At the moment I have some invitations for the beta left so if you are really interested in testing this new service, let me know by adding a comment to this post !
The only negative thing I experienced till now is that your download limit must be at least unlimited because the JOOST service uses a lot of upload and download capacity of your line….
