AT&T lost 1.4 million pay TV customers in its third quarter, a customer bloodletting that the company blamed on rising prices and programming blackouts.

The Dallas-based company lost around 1.16 million premium TV subscribers, while AT&T Now saw 195,000 subscribers leave the service. It’s likely that the corporate feuding that caused CBS to go dark on DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse earlier in the year contributed to the company’s pay TV losses.

That's 5.6 million cancellations per year. On the bright side, if present trends do continue, the bloodletting should end by 2022 when there are no more paying DTV customers left. :bigsmile

This is unprecedented. Streaming subs are collapsing at the same rate as satellite subs. Either AT&T is the most incompetent company in the history of the world or the USA is in the initial stages of an economic collapse, similar to what the Soviet Union experienced. But I digress...

For those 1.4 million of you who got kicked to the curb over the last few months, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Set aside the money you were paying to AT&T for the next 6-9 months and get yourself a shiny new C-band dish and you will be back to :watchingtv in no time.

People just don't have the money any more to keep paying $100 a month or more for stupid TV.
