US telco gains offset cable, satellite TV losses in Q3

Friday 7 November 2014 | 19:56 CET | News
Gains by telco providers in the US substantially offset subscriber losses among leading cable and satellite television services, according to the latest informitv index. In the third quarter there was a net loss of 45,000 digital television homes across the ten leading services in the United States included in the index. While any loss may seem significant, it should be viewed in the context of over 87 million television subscriber they have in total. As such it represents a loss of just 0.05 percent of their subscriber base.
