I know that most of you have requested to try out Joost and a high percentage have not been accepted into the beta program. Well this includes me, but Joost hasn’t forgotten about us. This morning I woke up, checked my email and what did I see? Ok I didn’t get an invite to the beta and they didn’t accept me into it either but, I did get an email about it.

“This is just to let you know that we haven’t forgotten your request to try Joost. We’re now speeding up the process of adding testers and we’ll shortly be inviting everyone who has signed up to try Joost.

This includes you, so expect an invite within the next couple of weeks – in the meantime, thanks for bearing with us – we appreciate it.

See you soon on Joost!

The Joost Team”

This is great, I have wanted to try Joost back when it was called the Venice project. Now everyone who has requested to try Joost will be able too. Not for another couple of weeks of course however we will be able to try it soon.

I think Joost is a great idea but I do hope that when it launches it won’t be a paid service because I don’t have cable and I don’t really want to pay for TV, the way I look at it, make a advertisement based busniess model and get more eyeballs instead of charging $60 a month for television.
