“If you take a look at the last 60 days by any measure, from my perspective, we’re in a really good position… We just announced a couple weeks ago that we’re actually north of 36mln already and obviously the number is going up everyday… I think, in hindsight, a mistake which we did have is a number of brands in the market that were ultimately confusing, which are HBO Now and HBO Go. We have sunsetted those brands and those services, so now we are left with, rightly so, HBO Max and HBO. So it’s a much simpler proposition for consumers.” – WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar on CNBC’s “Squawk Alley”
