The founders of Skype, the internet-based voice service that has caused waves in the telecoms industry, have set their sights on a similar shake-up of the TV sector with a new online service called Joost.
Joost offers broadcast-quality television content over broadband for free. Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, who also established the music-sharing site Kazaa, are set to launch Joost in the UK this year, although the company has yet to reveal the launch date. It has already signed up content providers such as Warner Music and Endemol and advertisers including Wrigley and Maybelline.
Joost is designed to be a global internet platform that offers content developers and advertisers the chance to reach a worldwide audience. Like the "on-demand" services from Sky and Channel 4, Joost will let viewers watch a show when they like and pause and rewind programmes.
