According to analyst study published on last week, RealNetworks is on its way to reach "magic" number of 1M subscribers with its premium-rate subscription service.
Real's subscription service, which has been rebranded various times and currently is dubbed as "SuperPass", costs anywhere between $9.95 and $19.95 a month and includes premium rate content from NBA, Major League Baseball, CNN as well as music content from MusicNet.
