Don't have any access to English TV programming in your neck of the wood? Not to worry...or at least soon you won't have to worry. Created by Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, Joost promises to bring TV to you through your internet connection. Joost has been hyped for quite a while and in truth, it has a beautiful interface and stunning video quality (on my mediocre broadband connection).
Thus far the channel offerings have been a little lame. You can watch the Comedy Channel, MTV, National Geographic and a bunch of other not-so-interesting channels. In fact, a lot of the content isn't completely family friendly.
But things are beginning to get more interesting. The news is that CNN, Sony and quite likely, NHL, have signed deals to put their content on Joost.
Joost is now in "invite" mode. If you would like an invite so that you can download and try this for yourself, let me know, either by posting a comment with your email address or sending me an email.
