Hello Joost™ and good bye Television

I just applied to become a Beta tester for Joost™ . Joost™ might be a new term for you today, but it'll be a household name before too long. 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. The idea is to making it as TV-like as possible, with programmes, channels and ads. Consumers will also be able to see some things that 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!

Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, the brains behind Kazaa and Skype are behind Joost™ and have worked with the world's best engineers, web gurus and media visionaries to get the project on its feet.

Can't wait to try it.

Looks neat. You may be interested in slingbox as well. It's a device that sends whatever plays on your cable, TiVo or DVD player to your computer wherever you are.
