U.S. Linear Video Subscribers Shrink in 3Q 2015

The second quarter tends to be seasonally difficult for providers of linear video entertainment services. That tended to be the case in 2015 as well. In the third quarter, the notable third quarter developments are that Verizon was the sole provider to add subscribers across both periods.

In the third quarter, aside from Verizon, only DirecTV and Charter added net new accounts. Dish Network and AT&T’s U-verse were the biggest losers.

With the caveat that any single provider can, at any time, deliberately undertake actions that will reduce or increase subscriber volume, the industry lost about 375,000 net accounts in the third quarter.
