Viacom inked a deal with broadband video service Joost to offer TV programming from MTVN and BET Nets. The deal, which also includes content from Paramount Pictures, comes after Viacom failed to strike a content ownership agreement with YouTube earlier this month (Cfax, 2/5). Joost was launched by Skype co-founders Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom. — Virgin Media and Warner Bros inked a pact to provide more than 500 TV eps from series such as FX’s "Nip/Tuck" through Virgin’s VOD library at Virginmedia.com. — Scripps Nets chose Neighborhood America to create "Rate My Room," an online community for HGTV.com designed to engender interaction around interior design.
