Viacom Goes With Joost

Viacom, who recently requested that YouTube remove 100,000 videos from it's files, has struck a deal to use start up Joost to share their content. Unlike YouTube and the other video sites, Joost is an application you run on your computer. Joost is the creation of the same people who created Kaaza and Skype. While shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report won't be available at first, it seems like a good bet that they will eventually.

You can sign up on there site to beta test Joost, however there is probably a huge backup now that the deal has been announced.
