In earnings results reported today, AT&T said it lost 590,000 "Premium TV" customers, a category that includes DirecTV satellite, U-verse wireline TV, and the online service known as AT&T TV.
AT&T also lost 37,000 customers from AT&T TV Now, the streaming service formerly known as DirecTV Now. The Premium TV loss of 590,000 customers in Q3 is the best result since AT&T lost 544,000 subscribers in Q1 2019.
AT&T's Premium TV losses ranged from 778,000 to 1.16 million customers per quarter from Q2 2019 through Q2 2020.
The AT&T TV Now streaming-service loss of 37,000 customers was also an improvement, but AT&T is running out of customers to lose in that segment.
AT&T doesn't report customer losses for each service in the Premium TV category, but it said that gains in AT&T TV "helped offset" the customer losses in DirecTV and U-verse.
