What is Joost?
Video on the Net? Surely this is nothing revolutionary – Or is there more than meets the eye with Joost?
Designed by the same geniuses who brought you Skype and Kazaa, Joost is a new way of watching TV on the Internet. With Joost, you get all the things you love about TV, including a high-quality full-screen picture, hundreds of full-length shows and easy channel-flipping.
Other features include search, chat and instant messaging, built right into the program – so you find shows quickly and talk to your friends while you watch. And with no schedules to worry about, you can watch whatever you want, whenever you like – as often as you want.
On the surface, it might seem like another YouTube, but once you start playing around with it – you’ll find it’s so much more. The two main things that sets it apart would be the high quality of shows, and blazing fast streams with P2P technology. All for FREE of course!
I was very impressed with the way it could cope with my horribly slow Internet connection. YouTube’s stream is usually choppy my machine. Joost – in contrast, streams flawlessly, and with arguably better video resolution to as well!
It even comes with interactive widgets and chat platforms. This platform is so attractive – even major networks like CBS have agreed to start offering its content (CSI, Survivor) on Joost when launches this year.
Make no mistake – Internet TV has arrived and its name is Joost.
