Akimbo Inks Deal with Turner

Sep 27, 2004  •  Post A Comment

Internet video-on-demand provider Akimbo inked a deal with Turner to include its content in the Akimbo service, slated to launch in October. The deal is noteworthy because it is Akimbo’s first pact with such a high-profile content provider. Most of Akimbo’s 60 content deals have been with small niche content providers. Turner content will be culled from CNN, CNNfn, Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies, Boomerang and Adult Swim.

Akimbo also signed deals with Granada, which distributes content in the United Kingdom, and with Quicksilver, which provides video on surfing, skating and snowboarding.
