New video on demand services

Akimbo Systems unveiled the new 'Queue-and-View' service for cable boxes. Allows cable subscribers to view Akimbo-content.

Linksys, part of Cisco, acquired Kiss Technology. It is similar to Akimbo.

It looks like VoD technology suppliers (such as these place-shifting players) can add interesting services to hardware suppliers and service providers. As stand-alone companies they may not survive, competing with the like of Verizon's FiOS TV.
