For all the people out there who are looking for a way to watch TV on your PC for free, there is a very good way to do just that. There are a lot of free services where you can watch TV through your computer, but a lot of the time, their servers get overloaded because there are so many of you trying to relax by watching your favorite show. Because the services are free, they don’t carry enough power to provide for all of the members at once. Joost is not one of them.
Joost is a streaming video site where it is possible to watch TV on your computer for free without having technical difficulties with speed. They have a database which contains over 15,000 shows and more and more shows are added on a daily basis. The shows in their database are the top shows like David Letterman, Hogan Knows Best, Larry King Live etc. You are able to make your choice from over 250 different channels which include the very popular channels of Comedy Central, Paramount Pictures, National Geographic and so on.
So what does Joost have that other streaming sites do not? First of all, there is the huge amount of programs and channels from which you can make your choice and also it is nice to have one central streaming site where you have all your programs together and you don’t have to switch sites every time you want to watch a different channel. The quality of the videos is close to excellent and the amount of time it takes to load a video is very fast. There will be no freezing or slowing down while you are watching. All you have to do to get started is to download the Joost media player which works on Windows as well as on Mac.
Other advantages of Joost are that you are able to skip parts in the show you are watching without delaying the connection or you can skip from one show to another very quickly and very easy. There also is the possibility of playing it in full screen or having it run in windows mode while taking care of some other tasks on your computer and still the connection stays stable. Navigating is very easy because there are different options. You can search by genre or just perform a search on keywords.
The movies you will be able to find on Joost are not the most recent releases. However, they have a database of movies that will bring back a lot of memories. And be honest, taking a trip down memory lane when you watch an old classic movie can be very enlightening.
