    I was on the beta.. it was alright. Nothing on it I actually would watch though. The image quality is fine, it's fairly quick to start up shows. Maybe the programming has improved of late, but there are only so many episodes of "Guinness World of Records" and Fifth Gear clips you can watch.

    works very well paramount UK movies lol

    this is what thay should of been doing years ago then thay not be in the state of users allways downloading illegally

    edited
    all thay need to do is Give the users the option to Limit the uploading seems to be p2p based as well as i am uploading when watching it (the hunt for red october :) jumping an little)

    or thay run into the problem the BBC had with theres (well BBC and C4 UK had an service that kept on running when the Main program had quit when Joost is not running in the task bar it upload downloads nothing)

    pffft....... its great and all but the options of channels and shows here in Canada is ridicolously minimal.... i heard US viewers have more channels,and if they're signing up NHL, CBS, MTV, etc, that'll be awesome!

    Nice program I have been using it about a month or so...the latest version 1.0 is really nice and a bit better than 0.12 that I was using...better layout and a smoother interface...

    Downloaded it after reading this news post. It looks gorgeous but has literally nothing worth watching unlike the BBC iPlayer which I've also been using for some time now, can't get enough of Saxondale and Panorama!

    Yeah, but the BBCiplayer is full of malware and hidden P2P services. So is 4OD. Make sure you get rid of the hidden application Kservice.exe whenever you aren't running it - even if you turn off the player you still have to disable this process manually.

    Hey guys, you might recognise former editor of bit-tech, Wil Harris, on the Frag channel 'Around the net in 20 Games - Halo', oh and if you fancy seeing me check out Frag (those are teeth) :p Cheers guys.

    Some of the new channels are nice, the paramount movie channel is well worth a dig through, theres not a huge number of films there but some of them are classics, I think "Paint your wagon" would be one of the westerns my parents watch everytime its on and "True Grit" is ringing bells in my head .. though I'm not sure why. Star Trek: Insurrection wasn't a bad sci-fi film (not great, just not bad either) and some of the other names sound familiar too.

    Not a bad program, but doesn't look all that great on my TV. Out of all the free internet TV apps I've tried this one probably has the least lag from buffering.
