Ladies and Gentleman, from the Skype visionaries, Joost

What is Joost™?

“Joost™ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best 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!”

It looks like there is no MacOSX version yet, they expect it to be available in the next few months. I guess we have no choice but to wait.

I love the idea and the concept, actually I’ve thought about this concept sometime ago, but I guess they came up with the idea even before Skype was born. They were just waiting for the right combination of factors - widespread broadband and powerful computers in particular.
