Is this a measure of viewers lost on all platforms or just cable? If not, is there any data indicating whether the number of viewers watching via the ESPN app or other streaming services? Stated another way, is it a net loss of a couple million viewers, or just a loss of a couple million viewers who watch via cable?

Since this report states "pay-TV" rather than "cable", I assume it's all platforms. That said, there's a difference between #subscribers and subscription $revenue. You may have noticed that Verizon is paying more for ESPN? So we are seeing fewer subscribers paying more per month to maintain roughly the same total revenue... in other words, when people who don't care about sports stop paying for it, those that do care must pay more.
