Akimbo, On Cusp Of Big Time?

  1. While true VOD will one day rule all, the Netflix model of using a que to create psuedo-VOD is pretty damn good. My own version of this is a dual tuner HD DVR. Right now I have about 8 HD movies I need to get around to watching. With network TV in reruns I have a shortage of the shorter from program which is easier to get around to watching. Now, the key thing to note is I have Comcast OnDemand, but it is lacking in content (especially HD — why no HBO HD, Showtime HD and such on demand?). So, my point is this; psuedo-VOD with more content choices trumps true VOD with less content choices — i.e. a good oportunity for Akimbo to step in.

  2. Do you think this means Akimbo will get back into hardware of set top boxes (after they got out to become a software only solution on the microsoft media center platform) or will the hardware just be built into a new line of Scientific Atlanta boxes?

  3. These guys still do not have the mainstream content or movies that the major player have–beyond narrowcasting of documentaries and some other
    content, I don’t understand how this warrents this level of investment.
