AT&T tops industry in revenue per video user ($111); TWC last at $77

AT&T (NYSE: T) led all pay-TV operators in average revenue per user at $111 per customer, according to a Wall Street Journal report that examined full-year earnings reports for cable, satellite and telco TV operators.

Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) ranked at the bottom of the list of seven companies, averaging only $77 per video customer.

The in-between included Verizon ($109 per video customer), Cablevision ($100), Dish Network ($91), Charter Communications ($87) and Comcast ($80).

The data was actually framed in the context of a report about the FCC's pay-TV set-top proposal, and how companies like Google could use new resulting regulation to steal market share from traditional pay-TV operators. You can read the full report here.
