Oh my goodness..my estimate was off a tad...how dare i be off by .7 millionDIRECTV's video subscriber base (combined DIRECTV, U-verse, DIRECTV Stream) is the third largest traditional multi-channel video programming distributor (MVPD) in the U.S. with approximately 13.3 million subscribers at the end of 3Q22
DirecTV had 22 Million subs before AT&T bought them.
Now, out of the 13 Million, at least 2 Million are U-verse subs, 1 million are Stream, leaves 10 million for Satellite, now if they lose their average 500,000, they will be under 13 million total.
How that relates to Dish is why I am answering this here.
DirecTV 22 Million to 10 million, means a, roughly, 54-55% loss of subscribers.
Dish Network 14 million to 7.4 million, means a, roughly, 47% loss of subscribers
So, it does not matter that DirecTV had more subscribers, it still lost a higher percentage then Dish.
