One year ago, RHAPSODY spun out from REALNETWORKS. TODAY, the company has gained more than 100,000 subscribers since APRIL 1, 2010, bringing the total count to more than 750,000.
"This has been a pivotal 12 months for RHAPSODY, and for the industry as a whole," said Pres. JON IRWIN. "Mobile has been the most significant contributor to the growth of subscription music usage, as apps make services like RHAPSODY available on any smartphone, without the need to purchase an additional device or additional data storage. When you download the RHAPSODY app, it's as though your phone were pre-loaded with 11 million tracks."
