Web-based video-on-demand service for TV Akimbo Systems Feb. 13 announced a content licensing deal with Reveille, an independent production whose credits include TV hits “The Office” and “Ugly Betty.”
Under terms of the deal, Akimbo subscribers would have access to episodic programming from Reveille-produced shows, including “Adrenaline X,” “House Wars” and “Meet Mr. Mom.”
San Mateo, Calif.-based Akimbo, whose content is distributed to the TV through a set-top box RCA Akimbo Player, offers more than 14,000 movies and TV shows from 200 content providers.
Last week, Akimbo slashed $100 from the retail price of its player to $99 through March 31. Monthly subscription rate is $9.99.
