DIRECTV takes television straight to the masses. The company operates the largest direct-to-home (DTH) digital-TV service in the US, ahead of #3 DISH Network, and in direct competition with cable providers Comcast (#1 overall in the pay-TV market) and Time Warner. In addition to its roughly 20 million US customers, the company counts about another 19 million subscribers in Latin America under the DIRECTV and SKY brands. Services include HD, 3D, and video-on-demand (VOD) programming. Phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T have bundled the company's video services with their own traditional voice, digital telephone, and Internet packages. As part of a wave of consolidation in the world of telecommunications, AT&T acquired DIRECTV in 2015.
