Dish Loses 23K Video Subs in Q1

Dish Network said it lost about 23,000 video customers in the first quarter, continuing a string of losses going back to last year, as revenue increased about 3%.

Dish ended the period with 13.874 million video subscribers, down 23,000. Last year the company finished Q1 with a gain of about 35,000 video customers, but ended the year with a deficit of 81,000 video subs.

The losses could be greater because Dish includes customer results from its Sling TV over-the-top video service.
