Joost to enter live-streaming market early 2008


joost-logo3.jpgNow that Joost has opened the floodgates and are allowing minions in willy-nilly, they’ve announced a huge incentive for people to join up. From early 2008, they’ll be live-streaming TV in the US, as well as their usual pre-packaged video fare.

Sadly it looks like it’ll start out streaming sports first, and then hopefully enter the full-blown television market. They’re also looking into offering a ‘catch-up’ service, where users will be able to stream live shows on-demand minutes after they’ve finished. Fingers crossed it proves popular, so we can see it on our shores next year, with better content than just sport. Like, err, Corrie.
