Ooyala's new TV Everywhere-based micropayment offering might work with major payment systems like PayPal, Amazon Payments and Google Checkout for online video content, but it doesn't work with cable provider billing systems... yet.
While this means that it won't help cable operators get money for new offerings like the HBO Go Broadband video service, it's not a forever flaw, promised Ooyala president Bismarck Lepe.
"This is so that content owners can have their own pay walls. We'll eventually plug in operators and other authentication systems," he promised.
