Joost TV Killer? VeohTV

You may have noticed a post I had recently about finding TV episodes online. In that post, I mentioned a site called TV-Links that uses Veoh to stream the shows. I was impressed with the content available on Veoh, but wondered how they could survive as they use P2P technology for streaming and basically search for any content online whether it is legal or not. I continue to wonder about the legality and more-than-likely lawsuits that will result towards Veoh. Still, this looks to be a very, very strong competitor to Joost, Babelgum and Democracy Player.

There are many stories about the VeohTV player on the web this morning, but the most comprehensive one is from Read/Write/Web. Here's their conclusion on VeohTV:

"Is it a Joost killer? Joost is an excellent company and I doubt they are
quivering in fear, but they are going to have to do some "Matrix like"
dodging in my opinion."
