With a host of over-the-top video options available to consumers, it's clear that traditional pay-TV operators are feeling the heat of subscriber losses, and the third quarter of 2015 was no different.
FierceCable, in partnership with Strategy Analytics, is analyzing the subscriber numbers in their report, Top 9 cable, satellite and telco pay-TV operators in Q3: Ranking Comcast to TWC to Charter to Cablevision.
Strategy Analytics noted that although video subscriber losses continued in the third quarter they were lower than previous quarters, a statistic that illustrates the cord cutting trend "has been overblown." At the same time, it's hard not to notice how managed OTT (like Sling TV or the TWC Roku trial) and skinny bundles are changing the nature of the pay-TV business.
