Joost Goes Live

Following a limited trial run, Joost today announced that it had officially launched its self-titled Internet TV service. While still in late beta, the peer-to-peer TV network is now said to be in full business and is said to have high-profile ads already lined up to appear this month, including segments from Coca-Cola and HP. Over 150 channels are part of the official launch, ranging from cartoons to documentaries and sports.

Crucially, the company adds, the beta is now far more open: existing testers now have unlimited invites, ensuring that almost anyone can try the service through a friend. A new version of the beta is available for existing users and requires a broadband Internet connection as well as either an Intel-based Mac or a PC running Windows XP.

    That's funny

    There's nothing on joost.com about this, and I've heard nothing about it as a beta tester. I'd be happy to hand out some invites, if they existed and this was true. But, once again. the crack staff at macNN posts an article with no confirmation or useful linkage. Sorry folks, you'll have to wait this one out until useful information comes from somewhere else.

    It looks like no invites

    Well it would seem a lot of us have no invites from anyone. I think it would be better for them just to open it up to anyone who wants to sign up instead of the stupid invites which no one has to give anyways.

    invite?

    I'll take a crack. Please invite me. 03mpji902@sneakemail.com

    On another note, sign me up with the silent majority who finds c*** like this annoying. I haven't felt left out because I went without a service in beta.

    Man, MacNN can't win. People complain when they report "old" news from last week. And they complain when they report news even before its been announced. Hey, maybe its a scoop!
