An ad-supported tier for Netflix has been rumored for a bit now, but it only became official earlier this year when Netflix's co-CEO, Ted Sarandos, confirmed the upcoming tier. That obviously led to some discussion regarding who Netflix would partner with, because it would be a huge deal for any advertising company to land Netflix. Turns out, it won't be an advertising company after all.
