Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: MusicDish/Mi2N - December 4, 2001

RealNetworks has launched its RealOne digital media subs service, the 'legal' alternative to Napster. It includes access to MusicNet - with licensed tracks from AOL Time Warner, Bertelsmann, EMI and Zomba - for &9.95 a month. And in so doing, it's beat Pressplay, backed by Sony and Vivendi Universal, to the punch. For another $10 a month, RealOne also offers news, entertainment and sports content from partners such as ABC News, CBS Survivor Insider, CNN, iFilm, E! Entertainment Networks and Fox Sports and MediaBay (Old Time Radio).

Record labels have been trying desperately to get online to tap into what they hope will be the lucrative file-sharing music market started by Napster and now its successors. The question which remains begging is: will significant numbers of online music lovers use the new services which, unlike free services such as Kazaa, Grokster and Morpheus, have serious restrictions on what users can and can't do? RealOne membership allows 100 streams and 100 downloads per month at $9.95, or 125 of each for its $19.95 'Gold Pass'. But unless they're renewed, downloaded files vanish once the month is up. Nor do the 'legal' services allow uploads to portable devices at launch.

RealNetworks also announced its new RealOne audio and video software with a built-in Web browser, Roxio CD-burning capability, archiving for digital media files and support for different media formats and including its RealJukebox, RealPlayer and subs-based GoldPass service.
