Akimbo Adds Hallmark, Outdoor Channel


Akimbo Systems will add library programming from Hallmark Channel and fare from The Outdoor Channel to its Internet-delivered video-on-demand service, the company said Thursday.

Hallmark will contribute movies and miniseries from its 3,000-hour library, including Alice in Wonderland and The 10th Kingdom.

“Longtime fans and first-time viewers alike will be thrilled with the high-quality, family-friendly movies available from Hallmark Channel’s library,” Akimbo CEO Joshua Goldman said in a prepared statement.

Akimbo subscribers will also now have access to videos from Outdoor Channel’s on-demand service, as well as thousands of other titles across 50 categories of video.

“The Outdoor Channel’s extensive library of high-quality outdoor-lifestyle video has an enthusiastic following,” Goldman said. “With The Outdoor Channel on Akimbo, armchair nature-lovers and ardent outdoor enthusiasts can now select their favorite shows about fishing and other wilderness pursuits from The Outdoor Channel to watch whenever they want.”
