Joost Introduces iPhone App That Streams Videos and Movies


joost iphone app Joost Introduces iPhone App That Streams Videos and Movies

Joost may have lost the online video war to Hulu a while ago, but they may have won the battle to bring the format to iPhones. The company has released a new iPhone app which streams over 46,000 videos for free, including full movies such as Men in Black and Starship Troopers.

Reviewers indicate that the app crashes more often than they’d like, and the navigation UI is a bit wonky. Still, having 46,000 movies at your fingertips wherever you are at any time is enough to deal with early version bugs. The app is out now and best of all, it’s free. What are you waiting for?

Sony Blocks Content from Being Viewed on Xbox 360 Via Netflix Instant Watch


xbox netflix sony Sony Blocks Content from Being Viewed on Xbox 360 Via Netflix Instant Watch

Various sources indicate that just hours before Microsoft’s Netflix-enabled Xbox 360 dashboard update hit, Sony made a lion’s share of their content unavailable for viewing on their rival’s gaming console. The same goes for Sony’s subsidiary Columbia Pictures. Netflix officials chalk it up to the "ebb and flow" of licensing agreements and say it’s only a temporary suspension. The Sony and Columbia content can still be streamed on other devices, just not on the Xbox. The console wars may be heating up again.
