It's Joost The Next Huge Thing

joost1.jpgFirst there was Friendster. Then there was MySpace. Now there is YouTube. And coming soon, there will be Joost. Beleive us now and hear us later this will be the next huge thing to hit the Internet. How hot is it? Well, the guys that designed it also are the duo repsonsible for Kazaa and Skype. That alone should have you dabbing the salivation from corners of your mouth. But what exactly is it? We'll let them tell you:

What is Joost™?

Joost™ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the bestjoost2.jpg 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!

How does it work?

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.

Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy this awesome new service as they are still in Beta testing but if you are lucky enough to know someone who has access, they can send you an entry ticket. Or, you can go to and apply yourself. Good luck.
