Column: The iTV Doctor Is In! Everybody's Talking about OTT and Kaltura

Dear Readers: This is the season of OTT. To paraphrase Harry Nilsson: "Everybody's talking about it. I hear every word they're saying."

The "analysts" get tied up trying to compare pricing models for the likes of HBO and Netflix, wrongly assuming that consumers will pick one or the other.
