Netflix spokesman: We have zero intention of putting ads on our platform; no change at all in policy.
The company also described its ad-testing as a “potential improvement” to the service to Business Insider. “As you know, we test hundreds of potential improvements to the service every year. Many never extend beyond that,” Netflix said.
