IPTV & Video on Demand

Akimbo Announcements and Visit

I swung by the Akimbo Systems suite in the Hilton to check on the latest from the Video on Demand (VOD) content aggregator. Their two major announcements at CES included providing their VOD content to AT&T Homezone subscribers and being part of the USBTV initiative.

Akimbo Systems announced at CES that its VOD aggregated content will be available later this month to subscribers of AT&T Homezone. AT&T Homezone is a videoservice that integrates AT&T„ Yahoo! High Speed Internet Service, AT&T„ DISH Network satellite television and AT&T Home Networking services via a single device. The integration of Akimbo content into the Internet connected set-top box will bring a new level of choice for consumers, who can now easily watch thousands of programs and movies on TV, downloaded with just a touch of the Homezone remote control.
