Real Networks reported a profit of $4.7m on income of $82.6m in the quarter ending June 30, Q2 2005. That's up 26 per cent year on year.

It was helped along by the $7.59m sale of its investment in MusicNet, but even without the gain, it's close to break even. The company noted that long running antitrust litigation expenses cost it $4.65m in the quarter, an increase over Q1. Marketing its Rhapsody service cost $6.5m in the quarter.

Real has 2 million subscribers, up from 1.55m at the end of last year, and these subscribers contributed to more than half of its gross revenue, $47.8m. However the number of music subscribers only just topped the million mark in the quarter, at 1.15m, up from 975m in the previous quarter.

The company raised its outlook for the year to between $323m and $333m. ®
