AT&T lost 90,000 video sub­scribers in the U.S. in the third quar­ter, a steeper drop than the same pe­riod last year, even though gains from its on­line ser­vice DirecTV Now are in­cluded. DirecTV Now added 300,000 sub­scribers in the quar­ter, so AT&T lost about 390,000 satel­lite TV and cable cus­tomers. AT&T’s sit­u­a­tion echoes a Com­cast fore­cast from early Septem­ber, when it pro­jected third-quar­ter losses of 100,000 to 150,000 TV cus­tomers.
