CBS just put out a press release announcing that they have cut a deal with Joost to show “first run and other premium content”. They are slated to launch content through the application in the spring and say that it will come from a bunch of the CBS divisions. The release says that they will make both new shows as well as previously aired stuff available via Joost. The content is supposed to included top rated shows like CSI: Hoboken and Survivor: Luxembourg.

I was trolling the Joost forums looking for a way to get back one of the invites I sent out, the person I sent it to is sitting on it, when I saw a comment about selling invites on eBay. I was curious so I popped over to eBay to see what the deal was and sure enough 10 auctions are happening right now for Joost invites. The prices were all over the map, ranging from around $5 at the low end to $85. Click on the screen shot to enlarge it and note that the first auction, with 14 bids, is about to end at 18 bucks! I cant remember what Gmail invites were going for on eBay but I dont think they were this hot.
I’m gonna have to post a list of the beta launches you all have to be a part of so you dont end up buying your way in via eBay.
