July 31, 2018 / Janko Roettgers

Charter President and CEO Tom Rutledge made it clear, amid another quarter of lost video subscribers, that his company’s video business was no longer built to go it alone.“We’re going to use video aggressively. But what we’re saying is, it really isn’t a standalone product in its current situation,” Rutledge said during today’s earnings call.The comments from Rutledge came after Charter gave back another 73,000 residential video subscribers during the quarter, which was an improvement over the previous quarter and the year-ago quarter. Though Charter has been slowly leaking video subscribers, Rutledge said providers and programmers still have an interest in keeping the video business going.
