RealNetworks to Provide Helix Technology for Premium Quality Media Services

SEATTLE, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
RealNetworks(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK) today announced that
Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) has more than doubled its broadcast software
license agreement with RealNetworks, in order to support an expanding consumer
audience for rich media content delivered by Yahoo! Broadcast Solutions.
Under the expanded license agreement, Yahoo! will now have the ability to
deploy hundreds of copies of RealNetworks` latest technology, the Helix(TM)
Universal Server.
"Consumers increasingly enjoy their favorite music, sports teams, news,
entertainment and corporate information online. This expanded agreement with
RealNetworks will allow us to provide our viewers and listeners with premium
quality media experiences," said Jeff Schrock, Vice President and General
Manager, Yahoo! Broadcast Solutions.
"Yahoo! and RealNetworks have worked together for years to create leading
edge media delivery technology and consumer services," said Martin Plaehn,
Senior Vice President Media Systems, RealNetworks, Inc. "We`re now pleased to
provide Yahoo! an expanded infrastructure to reach more consumers and
businesses, enabling the most compelling audio and video experiences."
The agreement builds upon the companies` ongoing commitment to deliver
rich media content to the more than 285 million unique registered users of the
RealPlayer(R) and RealOne(TM) Player and the millions of Yahoo! consumers.
With the growth of broadband, rich media has rapidly become vital to both
consumers and enterprises. Over 15 million U.S. households are currently
enabled with broadband, and that number is expected to double by 2004,
creating the need for more broadband programming and content delivery
infrastructure. Today`s agreement between RealNetworks and Yahoo! will
enhance Yahoo!`s ability to provide consumers with the sports and
entertainment programming that they increasingly demand.
