This would be an even more disturbing trend if it wasn't an established one for years. It isn't just DIsh who is losing subs, raising prices, etc... The main reason not to like Dish is their position on RSNs and generally having the lowest PQ, though not terrible. Otherwise, their Hopper 3, Flex pack, and generally their pricing options are awesome!As long as they keep raising prices and keep holding customers hostage for months on end, they will continue to lose them !!
7.42 million, but who's counting?So satellite customers down to 7.61 million. At the end of 2021 they were at 10.71 million for combined satellite and Sling tv. Now they are down to a total of 9.75 million. Just keeps on dropping.
Charlie himself says it is falling, hence his 5G venture and Sling. He knew Sat was on the way out. He's doing what he can to hold the fort.DOOM! DOOM, I say! The sky is falling!
Never bet against Charlie. Cats can learn something from him about landing on the feet.
Seven percent of all Dish/DirecTV/Comcast subscribers will cut the cord in 2023, up from six percent this year, according to estimates.Re: Dish losing subs.
I wonder what Dish estimates as their sub shrink and does this fall within that projection? We’ll never know for sure unless it’s disclosed but there must be a number or range they plan for? I also wonder if they have an idea how many die hard subscribers they have that will hang on forever, like me? And finally, how many subs does it take to keep the lights on?
Dish is countering by expanding other services, like its Ontech division.Seven percent of all Dish/DirecTV/Comcast subscribers will cut the cord in 2023, up from six percent this year, according to estimates.
What can they can they do about it? Not much, cut expenses I guess.
