Really Simple gets really enterprising

25 01 2008

The Open Television Network (OTN) launched Wednesday, democratising distribution for content owners seeking a broader audience and more choice for end users who find pre-eminent aggregators too driven by the Pareto principle.

The service is based on RSS feeds: an end user subscribes to a feed based on a subject, topic or provider of interest. This serves up lists of available content, then each time the user clicks on an item to download it, using a popular client like iTunes or Miro, their OTN account gets debited.

Any content producer can upload material, from which OTN takes a 15% commission per use.
