Joost Adds Mac Version

  • February 19, 2007
Much-hyped Internet TV startup Joost (formerly, the Venice Project) announced Friday that a Macintosh-compatible version of its service was now available. And in a message sent to Joost beta testers Saturday, the company noted the addition of new content and new channels to its line-up. Among the new offerings: National Geographic documentaries, Lime TV health programming, the "Bridezillas" reality TV show, independent films from Indie Flix and cartoons including "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show." The peer-to-peer Web video service has generated considerable buzz since its founders--Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom--previously created free P2P sensations Skype and Kazaa. The Joost Web site promises nothing less than providing "the best television content on the planet." But with YouTube now offering classic TV shows and Joost counting on "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Bridezillas," the future of Internet TV is looking less than revolutionary.
