has anyone used this or got it? I don't have a TV and I am in need of a Tele fix. There is always youtube, but it doesn't seem to be quite the same?

I have it. Have not watched much, but it does have some unusual shows. They are just starting out, so I feel like the offerings will only increase with time.

Seems interesting, I hadn't looked at it before. They seem to have quite a few shows on there. Is this supported by ads in the shows?

Skybolt, what's the performance like on a Macbook? Full screen video loves to make the fans whirl.

Also, is it ok to ask for an invite here? If it is, yes please!

Will check this thread again this evening when I get home,and if none of you have received invites before then, I will send. Cannot access Joost from my work computer. Please post if you do receive invites in the meantime.

Not bad. Channels are limited and redundant. Youtube is better, but crappier quality.

No intel mac. GUTTED! I was really looking forward to this. The worst part? They make it really clear before you download. My girlfriend is always telling me that i'm jumping the gun!
