Joost vs. BBC TV

I’m bored of Joost. I mean, the principle of interactive TV to that extent is AWESOME, don’t get me wrong. But there are more adverts than I have to watch when I use Tivo, and not enough content or an easy way of searching it. I’ll keep checking, but I’m not too hopeful. It seems to be more about the community than the content at the moment.

On the plus side, the BBC has just emailed me about the BBC TV trial – I got to use BBC iMP last year when they tested that. So that could be exciting – at least the BBC has a guaranteed trove of awesome content. More will follow here.

For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, these are two internet TV services, one launched by those nice Skype people (Joost) and one by the, erm, BBC. You know. Those guys with the funny hats.

More to follow.
