      Re: Sky and Joost

      well even now with unlimited cable i am hesitant to use any of it skyanytime and joost are just glorified P2P bits

      I much prefer the 1300 channels you can get via Media player if you look around

      Watch Television broadcasts on the Internet. is by far the best and is free and has thousadnds of channels including most UK stations

      Re: Sky and Joost

      Bear in mind i have only scratched the surface and its still in Beta.

      The way i would sum Joost up is basically there are a lot of different channels and each channel has lots of full length videos that you can scroll through and watch.
      I have 16 favourite channels, there are many hours of videos to watch , i guess they will add content as we go and also bring in the TV channels.

      I have not seen any TV channels but that might be because I'm a noob at this
