Hello Daniela,

We hope you’re enjoying your Joost experience.

We’d like to share some good news and celebrate the launch of the new Joost beta – Now For Friends. This means you can now invite as many friends as you want to try out Joost.

To access your invites, log onto Joost, go to My Joost and fill in your friends’ details in the Invite Friends widget box.

If you’re running out of friends, you can make new ones by letting people know you’ve got invites. To help with this, we’ve made a few goodies especially for you, which you can find at http://www.joost.com/share/goodies.html.

Last but not least, we invite you to enjoy the variety of new shows we’re introducing each week. This week will bring you a host of over 40 new channels in the US including Adult Swim, five new channels from National Geographic, new channels like Spike TV from Viacom, great comedy from Heavy, and classic series from Hasbro such as The Transformers. And that’s just the beginning.

Each week we’ll launch new channels – making sure you can watch what you want, when you want. So stay tuned…

If you’ve got any questions, feel free to check out our forum http://www.joost.com/forums, and don’t forget to send us feedback on what you like and things we could improve.

Enjoy, and see you on Joost!

The Joost Team

I am awful, I know. I promised Joost invites and then life took over and I never replied back to the 5-10 or so that asked for some. Now I have no excuse, so, hit me up with First/Last name to use and email and I will send you one by the end of this weekend.

WARNING: If requests exceed…. 20, I reserve the right to send the rest later next week.
