Changing television services in America

A quarter of television subscribers in broadband households in the United States made changes to their pay-television service in the past 12 months. However, almost as many upgraded to a more expensive service as downgraded. While leading television service providers lost over 400,000 television subscribers in the second quarter, they also gained 300,000 broadband customers.

Pay television penetration in the United States has fallen from 87% in 2011 to 85% in 2015. Yet the research from Parks Associates suggests that 4% of pay-television users subscribed for the first time in the second quarter of 2015.

That’s almost 4 million homes subscribing to television for the first time, against a net loss of around 400,000 households over the quarter.
