Link in with klickTab for a commercial solution

Intellicaster can be optionally linked with klickTab's RSS-commerce solution to charge micropayments for each episode downloaded by viewers.

klickTab charges viewers only for the shows they download (Manually or automatically) but maintains all the convenience of push-driven delivery into standard clients, like Apple's iTunes software.
