Meanwhile, Charter the third largest provider following the merger with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, lost 152,000 TV subscribers with a total of 16.93 million in the quarter.
“DIRECTV was the only company in the top 10 to report organic subscriber growth, although that was largely at the expense of AT&T U-verse,” said Informitv analyst Sue Farrell.
“It’s been a turbulent quarter with some large losses but the real story is one of consolidation.”
