Joost.com : 15,000+ TV shows, 250+ Channels

Greetings All,

In my casual browsing over the weekend, I discovered Joost. Joost is a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis (founders of Skype and Kazaa). Apparently the Tycoon Li Ka Shing has a stake in the company as well.


Joostâ„¢ the best of tv and the internet



I installed the application and have been watching some short comedies so far. The streaming quality is quite good despite my streamyx connection with the speedtest.net results as below:

The application is ad supported and have a very Web 2.0 feel to it. Navigation takes a while to get used to but once you get a hang on it, everything is simple. I can imagine this application running on all TVs one day.

In the world of Web 2.0, I believe this website is one of the best and as always free is good.

Well, if you do not intend to install anything on your machine, there are tons of video and movie sites out there such as CoolStreaming.us below.



That's all for now!

This site isn't updated really often, personally I prefer using Tutelevisiononline.com, it also seems to have more channels. ( http://www.tutelevisiononline.com)
