Created by the founders of Skype and Kazaa, a free internet TV service known as Joost has just been launched after first being announced nine months ago. Joost allows users to choose from a selection of different shows and channels on their PCs, which are supported by advertising in similar to normal way TV commercials. In a blog, Joost said:
Joost 1.0, which can be downloaded here for both Windows and Mac, is still in the beta stages, but from a quick look it seems fairly stable and is worth a try if you want to watch TV on your PC but don’t have the necessary hardware.
For us at Joost, we are exhausted, but excited. Many of us have put as much as two years of our lives into this little 'project,' and owe a great deal to our families for supporting us, to our friends for not ignoring us, and to all the beta testers who cheered us on and helped with ideas, feedback and lots of bug reporting.
