Rejuvenating television?

Broadcast television, as everybody knows and I have repeated endlessly, is cooked. Put a fork it in it; it's done.

But this article from The Economist suggests the obituaries could be a little premature. At least one new approach with an impressive pedigree (the founders also started Skype and KaZaA) is poised to launch a service the writer says "could end up rejuvenating the 75-year-old medium." The service – basically designed to deliver television on demand through broadband – is called Joost; they're taking beta tester applications now.
