I’m Now A Joost Beta Tester - Wahoo!
Filed under: Entertainment, Computers & Internet
Posted by: site admin @ 9:03 am

In case you haven’t heard, there is a new television station…sort of.  It does not transmit over the airwaves.  It’s 100% over the Internet.  It’s called Joost, and it’s currently in beta testing.  And…I am now a beta tester, which is pretty cool since it’s by invitation only, kinda like GMail was during its initial beta release.  I gave it a shot last night and it is pretty cool.

    Hey I’m not sure I’d call Joost a new station. It’s a whole new TV. I was lucky enough to get an invite a few days ago, and have enjoyed the service so far. It’s definitely the first big step for so-called over-the-top programming. We’ll see if it catches on, but I don’t see any reason it should. One minute of commercials per hour? That’s better than TiVo — it takes me more than a minute to fast-forward through them all. Allie

    Hi Allie, I actually meant to say TV network since there are a number of different channels available. But that’s not exactly right either. I don’t know exactly what to call it. It’s almost closer to what cable or satellite TV companies are to us today. We’ll see how the programming stands up as that will be one of the keys to success. If it’s a realy cool technical feat but nothing good to watch, then it’s all over.
