Why the new streaming TV services like DirecTV Now are struggling

The additions in digital pay-TV come as subscriptions to traditional cable and satellite TV are declining with the steepest decline ever coming in the first quarter. Pay-TV operators lost 732,000 customers in the first quarter, according to media analysis firm MoffettNathanson. And if history is any guide, each of those subscribers pay well north of $100 per month for packages that include an Internet connection. – Leon Lazaroff, TheStreet http://bit.ly/2soVi1s
