Reed Hastings Just Dropped a Big Hint About Netflix's Ad Biz

Reed Hastings Just Dropped a Big Hint About Netflix's Ad Biz

After years of resisting the idea of advertising, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) has done an about-face on the strategy.

While it's too early to get any data on the performance of the ad-based tier, and the company has said it doesn't expect that offering to be material in the fourth quarter, Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings made some comments at the New York Times DealBook conference that should stoke investor confidence in the ad business.
