- Netflix is looking for solutions for its new subscription with advertising.
- One of the favorites for marketing is tech giant Google.

Google could now deliver this – after all, the business with data and advertising placement is an absolute hobby of the search engine group, which loudly Wall Street Journal among the hottest contenders for Netflix’s big deal.
The Comcast subsidiary NBCUniversal should also come into question as a partner, as the US business newspaper reports. Netflix is putting the brakes on for the time being: They are in an early stage of development with regard to an advertising-financed subscription model.
