Charter Communications, which offers cable service under the Spectrum brand, announced on Friday that it lost 122,000 TV customers in the first quarter of 2018.
Then there is Comcast and AT&T:
Comcast announced Wednesday that it had lost 96,000 customers for the quarter, its fourth straight quarter of subscriber losses, and slightly worse than analyst projections. AT&T’s DirecTV satellite service lost 188,000 customers in the same period, driving down video revenue by $660 million despite growth of its own online streaming service.
All while Netflix added 1.96 million subscribers in the first quarter of 2018.
I personally have been streaming for many years now. Apple TV is my primary streaming device and between YouTube Red, Netflix, HBO NOW, iTunes and Amazon Prime Video there is enough variety and coverage for me. Also, I hate watching Ads, which is why I'm gladly paying for these services for the Ad-free experience.
If you haven't ditched the cable yet, what is holding you back? But if you have, what services do you enjoy most?
