Cord-Cutting Hit Record Levels in First Quarter

Traditional pay TV subscriptions fell by a record-setting 1.8 million in the first quarter, according to an analysis by Craig Moffett of MoffettNathanson Research.

The 7.6% decline includes a 14.3% plunge for satellite, compared to a 4% drop for cable. With sports off the air, and with the pain of the tsunami of unemployment just beginning to hit as the quarter ended, all these numbers will get worse in Q2,” Moffett said.

Considering other factors including lost revenue from shuttered cinemas across the globe and decreased broadcast advertising revenue, Chapek said the cost of the Coronavirus “was as much as $1.4bn.”
