Another Way to Get Your Playoff Fix
Yesterday the NHL announced a new partner, Akimbo.
Just in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Akimbo™ and the National Hockey League (NHL) Interactive CyberEnterprises (ICE), the digital arm of the NHL, today announced that hockey fans will now be able to enjoy watching high-quality, full-length NHL games for viewing directly on a TV or PC through the Akimbo Service.
The 2007 Stanley Cup Playoff games will be available on Akimbo for on-demand viewing 48 hours after the contest concludes, allowing fans to re-live their favorite team’s success and not miss a moment of the action. For the 2007-2008 season, Akimbo will continue to offer high-quality, full-length regular season games, weekly highlights, classic games and special NHL hockey features.
Akimbo is a video on demand service that can be used through a cablebox-like device, or through your PC.
