AT&T increased its subscriber forecast for HBO Max and HBO on Friday.

The telecommunications company, which owns WarnerMedia, said it now expects global subscribers of between 120 million and 150 million for HBO Max and HBO by the end of 2025.

Back in October 2019, the company set a goal of hitting 50 million U.S. subscribers by 2025, a relatively low bar considering the premium cable channel HBO already had around 33 million subscribers ahead of the HBO Max's launch.

The company also expects to see between 67 million and 70 million HBO Max subscribers worldwide by the end of 2021. AT&T had previously set a forecast of between 75 million and 90 million subscribers globally by 2025.

HBO Max is expected to expand to around 60 markets outside the U.S. this year and will launch a lower-cost version with advertising in June.
