Channel 4 shows on Joost

Just a little note that Joost, those exciting Internet TV people, now have the first two series of Peep Show, as well as a few other Channel 4 shows like Shameless.

The good things about this is:

  1. It’s completely free, unlike iTunes or DVDs
  2. You don’t need to install any software any more, since it runs in any browser than can play Flash video

Basically, all you need is a broadband connection and a web browser. Yey.

PS When did they change the theme tune on Peep Show or is is a licensing problem that stops them from using the proper tune?
