The Best P2PTV Service You Have Never Heard Of

Before Joost there was Zattoo. Started in June 2006, the P2PTV service grants users access to European channels and licensed content. The project was started by researchers from the University of Michigan and the private company currently has offices in Zurich (Switzerland) and San Francisco.

Unfortunately, content is currently restricted to viewing in the following countries - Switzerland, Denmark, Spain and the United Kingdom. The video format is based on H.264 and is generally of very high quality. Clients area are available for Mac OS X and Windows 2000, XP and even Vista.

According to the company, one out of five broadband user in Switzerland currently uses Zattoo, which is amazing statistics for any internet company.
