Joost invites for everyone

The last week has been a busy one for the chaps at Joost.

Joost Beta was opened up to "family and friends" of existing Joost users, which is great news for the world in general as soon everyone will be enjoying the new internet TV experience. If you've not got any friends then drop us your full name and email and we'll send you one

If that wasn't enough excitement in a week, they also announced that more than 30 top brands from around the world have signed up as advertising partners and as of today, ads from some of these ad launch partners will begin to play on Joost.

The Jooster thinks this is going to be a very interesting experience and the investment in Wunderloop has clearly paid off.
Imagine the largest brand names on the planet instructing the most creative publicity agencies, to produce a new form of 30 second commercial to be published on a new platform..... that has to be the best brief going.

Let us know what your favourite advert is and we'll run a poll.

New content has been added including exciting new programming from five content owners - Turner Broadcasting System, Sony Pictures Television, Hasbro, the NHL and SI. Beginning later this week, you'll begin to see shows from these providers on Joost - shows like "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," "The Transformers," "G.I. Joe," "Starsky & Hutch," "Charlie's Angels" and "NewsRadio." We'll also have video shorts and interviews from SI's Swimsuit magazine photo shoots, with behind-the-scenes footage and full-length videos following later this month. Finally, for all you hockey fans out there, the NHL is coming to Joost.
