Now that the first-quarter earnings season is well underway, FierceCable is looking at how pay-TV distributors, including cable MSOs, IPTV operators and satellite providers, as well as relevant programmers and technology companies, performed in 2015's first quarter.
It certainly has been a time of transition and disruption in the pay-TV industry. Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) recently decided to abandon its move to acquire fellow cable operator Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC). At the same time, AT&T (NYSE: T) is confident that its $49 billion acquisition of DirecTV (NASDAQ: DTV), which it expects to close in second quarter, will provide it with greater scale for its video service.
You can take a look at this report throughout the season to see how pay-TV providers performed during the first quarter.
