      I was just running through the install and noticed the following on the terms of agreement

      Just for those who did not read it

      It will be interesting to see how much bandwidth and memory it uses!

      I thought there might be some who had not realised.

      Perhaps I should move this to p2p

      This is from the Joost Knowledge base:

      How much bandwidth does the application use?

      IMPORTANT NOTICE for users with limits on their internet usage

      You need to read this carefully if:

      * you have an upper limit on your monthly internet usage, or
      * you pay for internet usage as you go (i.e. you pay per megabyte you download, instead of a flat fee).

      Joost is a streaming video application, and so uses a relatively high amount of bandwidth per hour. In one hour of viewing, approximately 320Mb data will be downloaded and 105Mb uploaded, which means that it will exhaust a 1Gb cap in 10 hours. Windows users should note that the application continues to run in the background after you close the main window. For this reason, if you pay for your bandwidth usage per megabyte or have your usage capped by your ISP, you should be careful to always exit Joost client completely when you are finished watching it.

      To stop using bandwidth, you need to exit the application entirely, as follows:

      * Windows users: right-click on Joost icon in the system tray (at the bottom right hand corner of your screen) and choose Exit.
      * Mac users: exit the application normally.

      There is a thread on the Joost Forum asking for more information Joost™ - Flatview

      I do not see too much detail there, but it gives people more information I guess.

      And Joost like Sky Anytime (or whatever it is called) will not get anywhere near my computer for that very reason.
