Netflix is raking in the dough.

The company's subscriber revenue inched past HBO in the second quarter with $1.146-billion compared to HBO's $1.141 billion.

Netflix has fewer subscribers than HBO  but it doesn't have to split the revenue with cable distributors like HBO.

Netflix executives have cited HBO as a model as it moves into original programming.
