Video on Demand consumers can officially check into the world's funniest hotel.
The BBC's “Fawlty Towers” is now available for Internet Video On Demand via Akimbo.
"Fawlty Towers" joins other popular BBC comedies available on Akimbo such as "2 Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps" and "Porridge."
"Like many of the beloved TV series featured on Akimbo, 'Fawlty Towers' has a large fan base that crosses all TV markets and demographics," said Josh Goldman, CEO of Akimbo. "We added 'Fawlty Towers' to the Akimbo Service because even though it is more than 30 years old, the antics of John Cleese and the rest of the cast are easily as fresh and funny as anything now on primetime TV."
The Akimbo collection features more than 8,000 titles including full-length movies, TV shows, foreign language content, children's videos, travelogues, how-to programs, experimental and short films, and more from nearly 200 content providers.
