It was some time ago that we wrote about Joost, the online video streaming service from the people behind Skype. Well, Joost has finally opened up to the general public and a lot more content have been added since we last had a look and there's now over 200 channels to choose from.
There's actually quite a lot of good content on there, although some of it might be a bit old, but if nothing else, it's a good place to catch up on old TV series where you might've missed and episode or two. Among the most popular channels are Fifth Gear shortcuts, which are clips from this popular UK car program. Others include the Alliance Atlantis Sci-Fi channel, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit on demand channel, Aardman animations, Guinness World Records TV, Aniboom and Onion News Network.
For those looking for slight more serious content there are channels like Reuters, The History Channel, Australian Food TV, DR (Danish news channel), TV5Monde Plus (French) and Travelistic. There's even a channel dedicated to Bollywood movies and things like the Audi Channel. The mind boggles at times, but there's at least something there for everyone.
You can sign up and download the latest version of Joost from here. Just don't tell us we didn't warn you, as you'll waste a lot of time watching a wide range of stuff as soon as you've go the software installed and if you don't have an unlimited broadband package, it can become quite expensive.
