Joost “Now for Friends” Edition May 11, 2007Posted by Joanne KY Teoh in Reviews, Web Video.
Here’s an update from the Joost blog. Beta testers can now invite as many friends as they like to Joost. When testers visit the “Invite Friends” widget, they’ll be able to share Joost with an unlimited number of friends, family, colleagues or anyone else.
Joost has also announced more than 30 top brands from around the world as advertising partners. Ads from some of these advertising launch partners have begun to play on Joost.
Joost is also adding new programming from five content owners – Turner Broadcasting System, Sony Pictures Television, Hasbro, the NHL and SI.
Now showing are programs like “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” “The Transformers,” “G.I. Joe,” “Starsky & Hutch,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “NewsRadio.”
Later in May, it’ll post video shorts and interviews from SI’s Swimsuit magazine photo shoots, with behind-the-scenes footage and full-length videos following.
For hockey fans out there, the NHL is coming to Joost, beginnig with Vintage games this month; full-game replays and highlights will follow soon.
The Joost team have also made changes to the widgets in the My Joost area of the user interface. They’ve added the CNN RSS feed to the Joost “News Ticker.”
