So, Netflix Surpassed HBO This Past Quarter in Subscriber Revenue

(via Entertainment Weekly)

The online streaming giant Netflix has been making a lot of waves over the last couple of years with their entrance into producing their own content. In fact, after resurrecting Arrested Development, Orange Is The New Black, and more, Netflix has just, in this past quarter, surpassed HBO in subscriber revenue. 

While that doesn’t exactly mean that Netflix has grown bigger than HBO, which has more of an established brand, more original content, and, overall, more accolades and money coming in, it certainly does mean that Netflix (and online streaming in general) is absolutely headed in that direction. 

Maybe, a stand alone HBO GO will be up for subscription in the not so distant future and we can all watch Silicon Valley, Veep, and Girls without using our friends and loved ones’ passwords.
