Momentum Builds for New Online Video Commerce Technology Content Owners Embrace ‘klickTab’ Micro-Payment Technology, Begin Generating Revenue with Simple, Convenient Way for Viewers to Buy and Download Shows

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 20, 2008) – Since the debut of Open Television Network (

) last month, content owners, online video producers and online news organizations have clearly embraced this new unmediated online video marketplace model and have been eagerly signing up to take advantage of the opportunity to begin generating revenue for their online video and audio content. In addition to the myriad enthusiast and hobbyist content providers signing up, Open Television Network has also attracted news organizations and influential bloggers looking to generate revenues for premium content. The Open Television Network, which launched last month, provides content owners a compelling RSS-driven micro-payment technology called klickTab to generate revenue for their content, while also enabling consumers with the simplest and easiest online video commerce model for online programming. "While existing video and content distribution download services have tried, the complexities of download services around paying and finding downloads, have limited the appeal of this form of distribution" said James Greer, President of "With klickTab, we can create a destination site where viewers can download individual movies and shows to iTunes with a single click, or subscribe to a genre feed and browse, buy, manage and synchronize all within a single location." "Although we've sold meeting videos on DVD for years, there's been a real push by our members to make meeting videos available online," said Michael Horton, Head Cutter at the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group. "klickTab has empowered us to provide our members with a way to obtain the latest meetings with the convenience of RSS delivery, while still getting their financial support for meeting videos."
