Top U.S. Pay TV Providers Shed 665,000 Subs in Q2

According to Leichtman Research Group’s latest market tally, the 11 largest pay-TV providers in the U.S., representing about 95% of the market, lost about 665,000 net video subscribers in the second quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of 545,000 subscribers in the year-ago period.
Why This Matters: The top six cable MSOs shed about 225,000 video subscribers in Q2, narrowed from a year-ago loss of 340,000, marking the fewest MSO losses in any Q2 since 2006, LRG said. Meanwhile, the nation’s satellite TV providers added 61,000 subs in Q2 (including gains from Dish’s Sling TV OTT service), versus a loss of 214,000 a year earlier.
