Graphic - Pay TV Saturation

Chart for Today -

The chart, from The Wall Street Journal, looks at the change in pay-TV subscriptions from the same time a year earlier.  That is, it's examining the annual growth rate of pay TV subscriptions, which in the U.S. dropped to near zero midway through 2010, and have been relatively stable since then.

 Breaking down the numbers, cable and DBS systems are heavy losers, but most of those losses are being offset by gains from teleco cable systems.  One reason cable companies are indicating a refocus on broadband Internet access rather than multichannel TV in their current business strategies.
