Joost

The latest beta of Joost is out, version 0.9.

The Joost FAQ says…

TV, the way you like it…

…Hundreds of shows from your favourite channels
…Full-screen, high-quality pictures and sound
…No fixed schedules – watch what you like, when you like, as often as you want

Well. Not yet, at least. I don’t think the quality is good enough yet, and the content are much like the channels you put at 30-99 on your TV remote. In other words: Not your favourites. Yet.

MTV is in with some content, so is some European broadcasters like DR (Danish Television). Ministry of Sound is a new channel this time, with the right content for young males (Let me guess: Football and girls will rate high on the Joost popular lists the next weeks…)

Joost 2

I guess the big content producers are waiting too se how this goes. But even if I think there’s lots of room for improvement, Joost is going to be huge. When enough people join, the big names will too. The quality will go up, both for content and technical quality. Broadcasters and content makers should pay attention now, get their feet wet and try this out from the start.

    Hi Oyvind, just passing by, I’m a filmmaker, you have some interesting articles about video editing and and digital creation, great stuff, keep working.
    Also I see here you post something about Joost, sounds really exciting, I went to their website and apparently you need a invitation to try it out, is there any chance for me to get one from you? Just curious. Anyways, I will RSS you. Take care.

    Joost have slightly better quality but, bigger bandwidth and download fees.
    Producers can also add streaming channels to the new viewmy.tv

    I don’t know Michael A. I treied viewmy.tv and to be honest: It sucked. I tried some channels I know, and the stuff they put up there was old clips, totally out of contest.

    Do you have other experiences?

    Check your mail. I’ve sent you an invite, LaRissa. I can’t send it again, as it is Joost that sends them out. If you loose it, I can’t help you. Check if your spamfilter has eaten it…
