Viacom Gets Joost Up

You may remember that last week, Viacom demanded that YouTube pull 100,000 copyrighted videos own that belonged to the media giant. Turns out, it wasn’t just because some guy uploaded an old Hall & Oates video, rather Viacom has decided to go with Joost instead.

That’s right: Joost users will be able to enjoy programming from networks like MTV, Comedy Central, and Nickelodeon thanks to a new deal in the works between Joost and Viacom. Now if everyone plays their cards right, Joost could very well end up being a YouTube killer.
