Joost Crosses Beta, Launches to Public

Next Story

Jellyfish Acquired by Microsoft

joost logoInternet TV startup Joost announced that they are officially launching their service to the public. What is a little ironic is the fact that they currently have over 1,000,000 associated with their ‘private’ beta. Joost provides on demand TV via the internet and has a PC and a Mac client.

I tried out Joost in their earlier days. There were a few problems I had with it. I tried running it on my secondary monitor to watch tv while I worked and found the performance to be sluggish. I also was not a fan of the product offering. There was just not enough content and I didn’t enjoy what was there.

Another issue, for me, was the fact that I would rather watch tv on, well, my tv. I have a nice hdtv and use a wireless media player to stream video to my set. I just do not enjoy watching tv on my computer. Well, Joost has an answer for that problem. They announced that within 18 months Joost will be available via a set-top-box.

So, if you want tv on demand via the internet, head over to Joost to get a copy of their client software.
