RealNetworks Announces New RealPlayer Express For Windows 8 -- An Easy Way To Find, Watch, Save And Share New Videos Every Day

SEATTLE, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Staying current with the most popular videos on the web just got a whole lot easier thanks to a new app for Windows 8 from RealNetworks (Nasdaq: RNWK).  RealPlayer Express, a free app available in the Windows Store, is one of the easiest ways to find, watch, save and share new videos every day.

"Over 72 hours of video is posted on the internet every minute," said Scott Uomoto, senior vice president of consumer at RealNetworks.  "Our new RealPlayer Express automatically finds the videos users care about the most – the ones from their Facebook friends, as well as the best of the best from the web – and makes it super easy for users to watch, save, and share them."

"RealPlayer Express is a great example of an app that takes advantage of the new Windows user interface and navigation to bring a quality experience to the user," said John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft Corp.  "It's easy to check out the videos that people are talking about and see what's trending on the Internet at any given moment.  We're pleased to be the first platform for RealPlayer Express."

RealPlayer Express is a brand new product from RealNetworks designed specifically for Windows 8 devices and draws on RealNetworks' deep expertise in digital media. RealPlayer® continues to be one of the most popular pieces of software in the history of personal computing.  Real's latest PC RealPlayer 15, which was released less than a year ago, has over 23 million monthly active users worldwide.  Moreover, according to the June 2012 survey by Forrester Research, Inc., "Q2 2012 Forrester Online Omnibus," the RealPlayer brand has 84% awareness in the US.* 

RealPlayer Express aggregates the most popular user-generated and free videos from the web and displays them in categories, such as sports, politics, film and animation, travel, education, gaming, style, pets, technology, and even by popular brands like Nike and The Huffington Post.  The most watched videos in each category are updated daily.  Videos posted by your Facebook friends are also automatically collected.
