AT&T hoped to enter the pay-TV market with the purchase of DIRECTV in 2015 but was offset by the rise of streaming media. AT&T attempted to cut losses and drop its traditional pay-TV offerings when it sold a 30% stake of the DIRECTV, AT&T TV, and U-Verse businesses to private equity firm TPG in February.
