Video-on-demand service Akimbo scored its first deal with a major sports league and plans to offer 10- to 15-minute condensed versions of Major League Baseball playoff and World Series games starting this fall, with regular season games to start next year.

“This is a big anchor tenant for us,” said Josh Goldman, CEO of Akimbo, which now includes content from 140 providers including CNN, A&E, HGTV and Food Network, as well as niche content companies.
