Joost – a brand new way to watch TV shows online1 minute read

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Joost lately; I got a Beta invite. And I can’t get enough. I reckon it’s the greatest internet based invention since Skype. No coincidence considering it was invented by the same guys. Like Skype, it uses peer to peer distribution in order to deliver video blindlingly fast.

Basically, it’s TV on demand in full screen, high resolution on your computer. Imagine Foxtel, but instead of waiting for the next show to start, or the show which is due in five hours, you simply look into the schedule and say: “that looks good”, click it and within 5 seconds, it starts.

Content from Sports Illustrated Swimsuits to Fifth Gear car reviews. From documentaries to cartoons. Sports broadcasts to Bridezillas. It’s great, and will only get better once more content providers come on board. Will Telstra use Joost as a distribution platform for AFL broadcasts?

So… Who wants an invite to beta test it?
