Real starts subscription service

RealNetworks Inc. launched today a subscription service that offers exclusive concerts, videos, games, movie previews and other media content for about $10 / month.
"I see this as kind of like the early days of cable," James Higa, vice president of RealNework's consumer division, said in an interview.

"It started humble, and it became very, very big," Higa said. "The key thing is you are going to get not just content but a whole lot of things. You get a combination of not just content but services."

Interesting to see if the big players of RIAA finally figure out that they have to offer something similiar to make even a little amount of money out of the Internet revolution -- instead of fighting against wind-mills.
