Then that will increase the loss of subs, vicious cycle they are in.
Wheres the reports for all the other companies that are losing money each quarter ?????????Its amazing that every quarter we have another thread about losing subs ....
Its getting quite boring.
Come on guys, the same info over and over again ....
Breaking News ....
Next quarter, ATT loses more subs .... shocking.
Your always going to lose subs when you openly tell people that they want you to move to a different platform and make it sound to them that they have no choice.AT&T worked hard to get 40% of DirecTV Now customers to cancel in one year, it takes absolute leadership talent to get that many customers to prompt change in such a short time!
They have a lot of work to do in the Satellite and U-Verse business, only a 15% customer drop. Management must be disappointed that they could't do a better job of getting customers to prompt change to other video options. Perhaps they should promote the individual that changed the strategy for the Now product lines.
They are not flocking to anyone for video on Traditional Provider's Services, loses for this year alone is now over 7 million, the biggest gains are for the streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, You Tube TV and Hulu Live have gains this year, but not that much, less than a million each in sub increases.Btw, customers ain’t flocking to Dish either
Deprecation and amortization are not "arbitrary", which you should know if you have actually taken an accounting class.Those numbers do not appear to be kosher. All those percentages in parens are negatives so how do all those negatives add up to a positive bottom line? Here's how it's done. Lay off people to bring your operating cost numbers down before the end of the year and then add in some arbitrary number called Depreciation & Amortization and there it is.One thing I learned in accounting classes in college was to evaluate an annual report always remove those two numbers to get a look at how the business is really doing year to year and they are not doing well.
Cable will get back customers when the realize that broadband only is more expensive than a bundle.The cable companies will eventually win all the customers back.
The key to winning the streaming battle is to go after the pirate stuff such as the jail broken fire sticks.
Your never going to get rid of piracy 100%, but the key is to keep making the illegal stuff go down often enough people don’t want to be bothered.
The issue with piracy is not the people who know how to program the stuff. It’s the other people who buy into it who have no clue how it works.
Once it goes down, and their friend is not immediately answering the phone they get frustrated and just pay for the service.
I even knew a hacker in Canada who gave it up. Simply got tired of stuff going down on a Friday night and having people blow up his phone the entire weekend trying to get their Tv back. He had a regular job, every time they would hit the hacked cards, his weekend while he ruined and he would be in his basement all weekend reprogramming cards
