AT&T Adds Akimbo to Homezone


AT&T Inc. cut a deal with Akimbo Systems to offer “AT&T Homezone” customers the company’s video-on-demand programming this summer.

Using EchoStar Communications Corp.'s Dish Network for most of its pay TV programming -- coupled with an AT&T-Yahoo!-branded digital-subscriber-line service -- Homezone is the product AT&T plans to push before it's ready to market fiber-delivered IPTV video and voice next year.

AT&T Homezone subscribers will be able to use their converged set-top boxes to access more than 10,000 television programs and movies-on-demand from Akimbo.
