Finally got my invite into the Joost beta programme – and the immediate reaction is positive. Full-screen video with very good quality sound, as promised, plus a ‘widget’ platform for things like RSS and live chat. But a very restrictive selection of content in these early stages – unless you’re a big fan of the World’s Strongest Man contests. And frankly, it doesn’t feel right to be watching that stuff on anything other than a Bank Holiday. Encouraging stuff, though, in these early days.
