Apple and RealNetworks Announce Internet Streaming Collaboration

NEW YORK-June 12, 2000-Apple and RealNetworks, Inc. today announced that
RealNetworks has licensed Apple Intellectual Property for streaming digital
video and audio over the Internet in the QuickTime format, and that the
two companies have also agreed to support the principles of the "Ask, Tell,
Help" initiative. RealNetworks also announced that its RealServer 8 now
supports the delivery of Apple's QuickTime-based content to Apple's
QuickTime players and is immediately available for download at
http://www.realnetworks.com/products/servers/server8.html.

"We heartily welcome RealNetworks to the QuickTime Streaming Server
community," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Apple's open-source QuickTime
Streaming Server has already been licensed by IBM, Sun, SGI, Akamai and
many others, helping to provide great content to the more than 50 million
QuickTime players that have been distributed worldwide."

"RealServer is already the media delivery server of choice for tens of
thousands of content providers worldwide," said Rob Glaser, chairman and
CEO of RealNetworks, Inc. "RealServer 8's support for Apple's QuickTime now
provides content creators and infrastructure providers a unified way to
deliver the widest array of content to the largest possible audience. We're
delighted to be collaborating with Apple on this exciting effort."

RealNetworks and Apple also agreed today to support the principles of the
"Ask, Tell, Help" initiative, which promotes good 'Internet manners' by
ensuring that each company's player applications will inform and ask the
user before changing the user's default player selection for common media
formats.

RealServer 8 is the world's most scalable, cross-platform, streaming media
server with unparalleled broadcasting capacity for reaching the largest
audiences on the Internet. RealServer 8 delivers the highest quality media
experience, including RealVideo 8-VHS quality for broadband viewers.
RealServer 8 supports the widest array of media types, including support
for QuickTime to QuickTime players. Over 350,000 RealServers have been
distributed by RealNetworks. RealServer 8 Preview is available for free at
www.realnetworks.com. General release of RealServer 8 is expected in the
second half of the year.

QuickTime Streaming Server is the world's first open-source,
standards-based streaming server, providing the highest quality streaming
video on the Internet. More than 50 million copies of the QuickTime 4
player, which is available as a free download from www.apple.com/quicktime,
have been distributed to Macintosh and Windows users worldwide.
