News.com reports that Akimbo will soon be selling their Video On Demand (“Queue and View”) solution on Amazon.com; Amazon will have an exclusive through December. As noted, this is not the rumored Amazon Movie Rental offering.
The best part of the article:
“Akimbo is similar to Apple Computer’s iTunes and the iPod, but for video rather than music.”
Yeah, that sounds familiar… And that’s really the problem; too many options will quickly lead to commoditization (not that I’m against customers having options).
You know things are getting ugly when you have to ask if VOD will be a feature or a business…
