Canadian broadcaster CHUM Television will partner with Dutch TV distributor Joost, to provide programming to audiences over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology.

The majority of CHUM content on Joost will come from its music entertainment channel MuchMusic, but there will also be content from CHUM Television-affiliated specialty channels SPACE, FashionTelevision, as well as its local CITY-TV daily talk show, "CityLine" starring Marilyn Denis.

Currently, Joost software is in beta-testing stage. Beta testers can apply on the Joost Web site to claim a position in a queue for an account.

In February 2007, Viacom entered into a deal with Joost to distribute content from its media properties, including MTV Networks, BET and film studio Paramount Pictures.
