    Recently I've been enjoying the fact that I can watch shows like Meet the Press on demand, but the long promised on-demand TV may finally be coming of age. They are talking about virtually an unlimited number of channels.

    I can only imagine how this will shape the entertainment industry.

    I have been on the sign-up list for the Beta for a while. If someone here can give me a Joost invitation, I'd appreciate it. I live in an area that is not served by cable, and there is darned little science/tech programming on the networks and NPR.

    I signed up when it was known as The Venice Project. I never used my account before. But since someone brought it up, I just downloaded the Joost client and its pretty cool! But I have a low end machine, so I'm not getting the full experience :( I dont have any invites right now. Mayb they are not taking in any more beta testers or its becuase my account just became active. I'm not sure.

    What kind of machine do you need? I would think that just about any old machine would do, as long as you have sufficient bandwidth (cable/DSL) to pull down the content. I've got 1.5Mb DSL and a high-end Dell - way overkill for net surfing.

    Thanks, my machine will handle that with ease if they ever register me for the Beta.
