With bland efforts from TV networks and movie studios for developing a true on-demand product that will let users download programming whenever they want, up and coming P2P program Joost would seem to be the next best thing. I recently received the following note on my email, after I signed up for the closed beta a few weeks ago:

This is just to let you know that we haven't forgotten your request to try Joost. We're now speeding up the process of adding testers and we'll shortly be inviting everyone who has signed up to try Joost.
Developed by the creators of Skype and Kazaa, these P2P experts are promising near TV quality "broadcasts", with programming deals also being worked on with a number of companies.
