Comcast Isn't the Biggest "Cable" Company Anymore

The largest U.S. “cable” company is not cable company, anymore. Counting firms the old way, Comcast is the biggest “cable TV” company.

  1. Comcast: 22,400,000
  2. Charter Communications: 18,421,145
  3. Cox Communications: 4,540,280
  4. Altice: 3,948,000
  5. Mediacom: 862,000

But it long has been the case that there are several ways to deliver linear entertainment video: cable TV networks, satellite and now telco networks. Using a “linear video entertainment” definition, rather than counting by access network technology, the market shares are different.

  1. AT&T U-Verse and DirecTV: 26,000,000
  2. Comcast: 22,400,000
  3. Charter Communications: 18,421,145
  4. Dish Network: 13,909,000
  5. Verizon FiOS: 4,700,000
