Joost

Adware (free) – Joost – Windows

Joost is a new way for you to watch TV on the internet. With Joost, you get all the things you love about TV, including a high-quality full-screen picture, hundreds of full-length shows and easy channel-flipping.

You get great internet features too, such as search, chat and instant messaging, built right into Joost – so you find shows quickly and talk to your friends while you’re watching them. And with no schedules to worry about, you can watch whatever you want, whenever you like – as often as you want. Joost is completely free and works with most modern personal computers and Intel Mac-based computers with a broadband connection.

Here are some key features of Joost:

Free TV, straight to your PC

Requirements:
? Pentium 4 processor, 1GHz

? A modern video card with DirectX support and at least 32Mb of VRAM
? About 500 MB free disk space
? The Joost software is a 10 MB download, expanding to 30-35 MB on disk. The remainder is used as a cache
? Broadband/ADSL (1Mbit/s downstream, 512Kbit/s upstream recommended, although lower speeds may well work)
? 1 hour of viewing is 320 Megabytes downloaded and 105 Megabytes uploaded, which means that a 1 Gb cap will be exhausted in about 10 hours
