I finally managed to get a “token” to get me on to the BETA of Joost (formerly The Venice Project) and have just installed the software (only around 9Mb download).
There’s plenty of buzz already around the project so I won’t go into the intimate details of it here, but my initial thoughts are:
- Good quality picture, although not the “TV quality” claimed
- No “popular” channels on there yet but that is to be expected since it is early days.
- The Search interface is already better than the sky EPG since you can search for a particular programme rather than scrolling through lists of channels.
I’ll post more when I’ve had a bit more of a play with it.
