Ten leading pay-TV services in the US lost 663,000 subscribers between them in the second quarter of 2016, according to informitv Multiscreen Index. The second quarter is generally a weak season for television subscriptions but some operators managed to reduce their customer losses. These ten services lost 437,100 television customers in twelve months, which was less than 0.5 per cent of their combined subscriber base.
“Mergers and acquisitions have reshaped the top 10 pay television services in the United States,” said Dr William Cooper, the editor of the informitv Multiscreen Index. “Our index shows how new players rank and tracks the overall subscriber trends.”
“DirecTV was the only company in the top 10 to report organic subscriber growth, although that was largely at the expense of AT&T U-verse,” added informitv analyst Dr Sue Farrell. “It’s been a turbulent quarter with some large losses but the real story is one of consolidation.”
