Only two, Sling TV and DirecTV Now, publicly disclosed how many subscribers they added. Sling TV added 41,000 new subscribers, up 25.9% year over year according to Strategy Analytics, and DirecTV Now added 342,000, up an astonishing 268.4% year over year.While those two services still account for the bulk of all vMVPD subscribers in the U.S., with more than 4 million combined, other competitors are quickly gaining ground.
