Joost Lets In Anyone Who Knows Anyone

Joost, the internet TV software from the creators of Kazaa and Skype, opens to the public today. Well, sort of. Existing beta testers can now send out unlimited invitations. If I have some time later I’ll go through the comments on our old posts and try to let all you guys in.

The application will now display ads from some of the blue-chip names Joost announced deals with last week, a list that includes Coca-Cola, HP, Intel, Nike, Electronic Arts, Sony Electronics, and IBM.

We recently rounded up some of the best video on Joost; the company claims more than 150 channels currently, with not much in the way of indie content. (More from Om here.)

  1. Joost’s IRC channel on Freenode has this as their current topic “Sorry no unlimited invites till tomorrow” and the Joost developers that hang out there reply with a curt No Comment when asked what happened.

  2. Hello Liz, NTV has been a great support for “Can We Do That?” Great article and I would love an invite to Joost if you would be so kind.



  3. Hi Liz,

    Thanks for the update.
    I would love to have an invite too, to test the French contents. My address is : jeyyonf (at) yahoo (dot) fr

    Hard to tell whether it will be the death of TV as we know it, or the death of the Internet. Needless to say I’m curious to check it out, so if you have a spare invitation I’d be delighted to get one.
