A Beta TV called Joost

TV the way it will be

Finally received an invite to participate in a little Joost up TV. Subsequently I've been watching a beta Joost. This thing is not only the future of TV but the future of Entertainment. I didn't get the invite from Joost though, I was referred using e-beg. Simliar to eBay except you wander forums begging for an invite and the more creative you are with your posting the better chance of receiving an invite via email which is kind of like a wormhole to the future in a referral link. The future of TV that is.

Enjoy this promotional video for Joost to get your tongues wagging and just hope that you have a techy friend in the know to send an invite your way. Otherwise you can use e-beg on a forum. I went to this one: Joost Forums and posted this poem:

I am thirsty for Joost.
I need vitamin TV please.
Certainly a Boost.
Beta than Full Release.

And after somebody sent me an invite I added this:

I just got an invite
But not of this board
I'll leave you to fight
Until you become bored.

Sorry for teasing you with all this but I really think it has loads of promise.



The Best Way to Get a Joost Invite
It's called Google for a reason but that's not relevant right now. What you wanna do is search in Google or I'm not obliged to say but search engine of your choice for a Joost related forum.

Try keywords like these Joost, Joost Invite, Joost Forum, Joost Beta Invite, Joost Invite Community, The Future is Joost and stuff along those lines.

Find one that looks decent and has been active and trawl for invites by putting your email [quenchyourthirst] [at] [joost.com] and if you trust the forum your First and Last name. You can use an alias because you can change your full name after you are registered and have it on your computer.

Or if you are a member of a forum just start a thread in a relevant topic and fish for people.

The other rarer option is that one of your friends has Joost. Which would be a lot easier.

Get Your Rare Dose of Vitamin C

Have a nice time finding an invite. I'll be watching the future on Joost, not the content just the program. First three people to leave an amusing comment will get a Joost Invite emailed to them as I gain them from using the programme. Leave email and First and Last Name.

  2. Since you were first to comment I will give you the first invite I earn through watching TV. I just need your First and Last Name and you will be set.

    I'm wondering how bandwidth intensive Joost is? Sounds like it'll put the fear of god up ISPs with fair use policies in place.

    If you ever wanna spread the Joost love =P walker.moore at gmail dot com , ya know? Thanks for the tips. Hopefully I'll get an invite from somewhere soon anyway. =)

  5. Yeah I'll try and find out what sort of data it chews out and edit the post. Thanks for the input.

    Walker, invite is coming your way when I gain one and Michael you're getting one too. Unless the first guy gets back to me with his name the next person to comment and leave their email and details wins a Joost invite!

  7. K that's all the invites taken.

    Congrats if you got one.

    Wait for a Joost toke in your inbox as I get them through the service.

    Thanks for tuning in.

  8. If for some reason you get more than three invites...consider the plight of this late-in-the-day blog reader.

    [to the tune of the 'Cheers' theme song]
    Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows you Joost, it will knock you off your roost...you have to cry or be real sly, or give a real ego boost, you have to beg for someone to give you Joost

  10. Anthony-
    Please...if you have anything left (invites or tips to them), please, please let me know. It would be much appreciated and I'd be sure to subscribe to the religion of the internet: paying it forward.
