By Jennifer Jenkins – Updated May 08, 2018 02:20:20 The United States remains home to more than 2,000 cable companies, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.
This number does not include Internet-only companies, such as Time Warner Cable and DirecTV.
In 2017, cable companies generated about $3.3 trillion in revenue, making them the second largest industry in the United States, behind the telecommunications industry.

Cable companies are also the most profitable in the country, with a net profit of $8.4 billion in 2017, according the report.
Cable TV, however, made up the smallest percentage of the U.A.E.’s total $4.2 trillion in annual revenue.
The report did not include satellite providers or other video-on-demand providers, which make up a large part of the Internet-enabled Internet economy.
The companies that make up the Internet economy, however are growing rapidly.
For example, Comcast’s Internet video service grew from 7 percent of U.P. revenue in 2017 to nearly 17 percent in 2018.
According to Pew, the Internet service market in the U, as measured by revenue, grew at a whopping 11 percent annually from 2016 to 2018.
For 2017, Comcast brought in $3 billion in revenue; in 2018, it brought in an estimated $2.9 billion.
Netflix, which makes its money from subscription-based streaming, brought in a reported $5 billion in total revenue in 2018 (including streaming).
Other notable Internet companies that made significant contributions to the U-P’s overall economy included Dish Network, which provided the Internet backbone for the U; Comcast, which is a media provider that provides Internet TV service to the country’s major TV networks; and Time Warner, which provides broadband services to a majority of U-A.
The U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several European countries also had a large number of cable companies.
