Technology: An Affordable New Video Feed

If you're tired of viewing the same old sitcoms and reality shows on TV but don't want to pay a big monthly fee for premium cable or satellite offerings, a new service called Akimbo may tempt you. For just $10 a month starting this spring, Akimbo will deliver programs ranging from independent films to foreign-language news to rock-climbing videos. Akimbo sends the video feed over a broadband Internet connection to your Akimbo player ($199). You can choose from 10,000 hours of programming and store up to 200 hours on your player at a time.
