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.
