Joost, the upcoming broadcast-quality Internet television service by the Skype founders, announced today that Viacom will be a key content partner.

Under the agreement, Viacom’s divisions – MTV Networks, BET Networks and Paramount Pictures – will provide television and theatrical programming on the Joost platform.

Joost is still in private beta testing, but this content deal announcement is a strong statement. If they can add a couple more deals like this then Joost is off to a great start. MTV Networks will provide premier content from several of its brands for launch. MTV will offer popular shows, both past and present, including Laguna Beach, Beavis & Butthead, Real World, Punk’d and My Super Sweet Sixteen, while COMEDY CENTRAL will feature episodes from Stella, CCP’s and Freak Show.
More details can be found on Joost site.
