The on-demand online TV network drops the need for an invite and opens up to the masses.
For those of you who have yet to check out Joost the time is now. It has just announced that it has opened its doors to the public and no longer requires an invite to join in on the action.
A new post on the Joost blog reads as follows:
Big day for us at Joost — today Joost is drawing back the curtain and steppin’ out.
Haven’t been able to score an invite? Now it doesn’t matter! Everyone can enjoy a ballooning selection of comedy, music videos, documentaries, movies and the latest hits from some of your favorite media brands, including CBS, Major League Baseball, MTV, Turner, Comedy Central and more — over 15,000 shows to date. So if you’re one of the mere 6.5 billion who have not received a Joost invite, prepare to be entertained. Really nice to meet you.
For us at Joost, we are exhausted, but excited. Many of us have put as much as two years of our lives into this little “project,” and owe a great deal to our families for supporting us, to our friends for not ignoring us, and to all the beta testers who cheered us on and helped with ideas, feedback and lots of bug reporting. This release is for you.
Joost is still Beta software — there’s a lot more work to be done before we’re satisfied, and yes, you may find a bug or two. Please, please let us know if you do — we are grateful to all those who have and continue to let us know when they find problems.
What’s next? Well, for me, since I missed CBS’s new fall hit, Kid Nation, I plan to catch it on Joost tonight. While I’m at it, I plan to flip through some of the Aardman claymations (laugh-out-loud funny) and then just let the Chili Pepper channel I created run in the corner of my screen while I do some work for tomorrow. Can’t wait.
The content selection’s pretty decent and it seems to be adding stuff all the time so if you haven’t done so already I urge checking it out.
