The figure means Netflix has finally surpassed HBO, its new rival in original content.
HBO has 28.7 million subscribers, according to the most recent data.
Netflix had a great quarter, adding just over 2 million subscribers, thanks mainly to an upgraded TV catalog and original content like the popular "House of Cards."
On a global scale, HBO is still king, with 114 million subscribers. Netflix only has 36.2 million.
