Akimbo for PC

Internet video provider Akimbo today said it would give a new PC viewing option for its service. Having already beaten the Apple TV and Unbox on TiVo by releasing its Internet-based TV hub years earlier, the company will use Roxio's Venue to not only allow downloads of movies and TV shows but to burn DVDs that are playable on most DVD players.

Also part of the introduction is a deal with the NHL that will see full hockey games available either for the Akimbo set-top box or the PC within 48 hours of game day. A two-week beta should start on April 16th and will require a Windows XP or Vista system. Changes in pricing weren't announced.
