Aca estan ciertos datos que me llamaron la atencion:
( si no entienden les traduzco )

•Subscribers. Subscribers are members who purchase daily, three-day, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual or lifetime subscriptions for one or more of our websites. Subscribers have full access to our websites and may access special features including premium content. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, we averaged over one million paying subscribers each month from whom we derived 77.2% of our internet revenue.

•Paid Users. Paid users are members who purchase products or services on a paid-by-usage basis. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, we averaged approximately 1,715,845 paid minutes each month and derived 19.6% of our internet revenue from paid users.

•Average Monthly Net Revenue per Subscriber. Average revenue per subscriber, or ARPU, is calculated by dividing net revenue for the period by the average number of subscribers in the period.

•Churn. Churn is calculated by dividing terminations of subscriptions during the period by the total number of subscribers at the beginning of that period.

Y lo mas interesante es esto:

We have a history of significant operating losses and we may incur additional losses in the future.
We have historically generated significant operating losses. As of December 31, 2007, we had an accumulated deficit of approximately $98.7 million. We had net losses of approximately $32.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 and $29.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2007 and a loss of $49.9 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006. We also had negative operating cash flows in 2006 and 2005. We expect our operating expenses will continue to increase during the next several years as a result of the promotion of our services and the expansion of our operations, including the launch of new websites and entering into acquisitions, strategic alliances and joint ventures. If our revenue does not grow at a substantially faster rate than these expected increases in our expenses or if our operating expenses are higher than we anticipate, we may not be profitable and we may incur additional losses, which could be significant.

Aun con todo eso, pierden dinero.

Que que ?!?!? =P
