Revenue from iQIYI jumped 15% to 7.11 billion yuan ($1.01 billion), as the service crossed the 100 million subscriber mark in June this year, despite stiff competition from rivals including ByteDances's TikTok.
Online marketing services business revenue, a major contributor to overall sales, fell about 9% to 19.2 billion yuan and came in below estimates, hurt by the impact of a prolonged trade war and tighter ad regulations by the government.
