"It'd be nice to get more precise Zune data, but the company says that between Zune and Mediaroom (IPTV) revenue increased 65 percent or $539 million, primarily the result of the Zune launch."
Not a lot of information here, and there's no way to tell exactly what the Zune numbers are, but between the two groups, they're boosting revenue. This is just a thing slice of the overall fiscal data, because it doesn't say anything about profits (revenues minus expenses), but no one, Microsoft included, expected to be making money with the Zune for the first three years. It's a long-haul game, and this is only the second round of products.
