Joost recently launched its new Flash-based video service and now offers more than 46,000 professionally-produced videos for a total of more than 8,000 hours of video entertainment. Some of Joost’s partners include CBS (Entertainment, News and Sports, and classic library content), Showtime,, Wallstrip, Moblogic; Viacom, including Atom, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, LOGO, MTV, The N, Nickelodeon, Spike and VH1 programming; television series and full-length feature films from Sony Pictures Television; and the Warner Bros. Television Group.

The site has also implemented a new programming guide which organizes content into three main categories: shows, music and film. These categories are then divided into genres. For instance, users can search for their favorite films under such categories as action, classics, horror, comedy, etc, making it simple for them to find exactly what they are looking for.
