'Skype TV' service renamed as Joost

The Venice Project reinvented and redesigned

The Venice Project, a service from the founders of Skype offering a new way to access video online, has now been renamed as Joost.

With a new name and enhanced features, Joost aims to bring users television, unrestricted by schedules or subscriptions, whenever and wherever they want. As well as the change in name, the service has also been given complete site redesign.

Joost will provide an alternative to traditional television, allowing “more control and freedom” and distributing video content using peer-to-peer technology. The platform will also include features to help users find their favourite programmes, watch and chat with friends and even create their own TV channels.

The software is currently at beta stage and available for Windows only, although versions for Mac and Linux are expected to be available soon.
