ITEM 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

In connection with the Agreement of Contribution and Subscription, dated February 25, 2021, among AT&T Services, Inc., AT&T MVPD Holdings, LLC (formerly named V HoldCo LLC), DIRECTV Entertainment Holdings LLC (the “Company,” formerly named V OpCo LLC) and TPG VIII Merlin Investment Holdings, L.P., previously disclosed and described in further detail in the Current Report on Form 8-K, filed by AT&T Inc. (“AT&T” or “us”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 25, 2021, the Company intends to make a payment to AT&T or one of its affiliates using, among other sources, net proceeds from debt financing that may include the issuance of senior secured notes in an unregistered offering pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and entry into a new credit agreement.

In connection with the contemplated debt financing referenced above, the following preliminary information regarding operational performance of the Company for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2021 will be made available to prospective purchasers of notes and lenders under the credit agreement. Because the reporting period for the second quarter of 2021 has recently ended, the preliminary operational information presented below for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 reflects assumptions and estimates based only upon preliminary information available to us as of the date of this report. During the course of our financial statement closing process, we may identify items that would require us to make material adjustments to the information described below. As such, this preliminary information should not be viewed as a substitute for our actual results when reported and may be subject to changes and, therefore, we caution you that such estimates are subject to risks and uncertainties, including possible adjustments. See “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” below. Figures provided for the Company include subscriptions to DIRECTV, AT&T TV and U-verse TV. References to DIRECTV, AT&T TV or U-verse TV refer solely to the service(s) mentioned and not to the Company as a whole.

 

  

Subscriber trends (information in 000’s):

 

  

Aggregate premium video gross additions for the second quarter of 2021 were 492, an improvement of 2% from the aggregate gross additions of 481 for the corresponding quarter of 2020.

 

  

Aggregate premium video net additions for the second quarter of 2021 were (473), an improvement of 47% from the aggregate net additions of (887) for the corresponding quarter of 2020.

 

  

The Company’s aggregate premium video subscriptions at the end of the second quarter of 2021 were 15,412, a decrease of 13% from the Company’s aggregate subscriptions of 17,712 for the corresponding quarter of 2020.

 

  

DIRECTV churn, which is calculated by dividing the aggregate number of subscribers who disconnected service (inclusive of cancellations, migrations, and transfers) during a month by the average number of subscribers in that month, showed strong momentum in the second quarter of 2021. The DIRECTV churn for the second quarter of 2021 was 1.87%, an improvement of 22% from the DIRECTV churn of 2.42% for the corresponding quarter of 2020. The churn rate for a given period is equal to the average of the churn rates for each month of that period. The Company’s presentation of churn differs from the historical presentation of churn by AT&T in the following respects: (i) the Company calculates churn based on the average number of subscribers for a specified period rather than the number of subscribers at the beginning of such period and (ii) the Company’s calculation of churn is inclusive of all disconnections, including cancellations, migrations and transfers, rather than solely cancellations of service.

 

  

The table below presents churn for DIRECTV on a monthly basis going back to January 2020.
