Netflix Seeks Gaming Exec

A story on The Information (may require registration or subscription) details Netflix's search for an executive to assist the company in its efforts at making inroads in the gaming market (thanks Slashdot via Ant). A post on Yahoo! Finance has some of the details in case you are thwarted by the original article's paywall: "Netflix Inc is looking to hire an executive to oversee its expansion into videogames, a person familiar with the matter said, a sign that it is ramping up efforts to grow beyond its traditional business as streaming competition intensifies." One thing that seems fairly set is the refusal to support this initiative through advertising:
While the details of the company's games strategy are still very much in flux, it has decided that the games will not feature advertising, the report said.
