Akimbo delivers digital video over the Internet and into the Akimbo Player, a set-top box that connects to a TV. Like a personal video recorder, the Akimbo Player has a hard drive that can store at least 150 hours of content. The Akimbo service lets users download content on demand over a broadband connection. This is not streaming video: The content is stored on the Player's hard drive before you can watch it. With its on-demand Internet video player, Akimbo is testing the axiom, "If you build it, they will come." Akimbo has stepped up with a good device and service model. But for it to fly, content providers need to offer something better than classic movies, music videos, documentaries and independent films.
