North America to lose fewer pay TV subs

The number of pay-TV subscribers declined by 2 million in 2015. Before 2015, much of the pay-TV fall was attributed to the loss of analog cable subscribers (which still fell by 1.1 million in 2015). However, the number of IPTV subs fell slightly in 2015, with satellite TV losing 610,000 subscribers. […] Much of the IPTV loss is attributable to AT&T encouraging its U-Verse subscribers to switch its DirecTV satellite platform. However, not even this bonus was enough to stem the loss of satellite TV subscribers. – Broadband TV News
