Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) surprised investors when management shared its plans to start offering an ad-supported tier of the streaming service in the near future. "We can be a straight publisher and have other people do all of the fancy ad-matching," co-CEO Reed Hastings said during Netflix's first-quarter earnings call.

As always, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) is among the first wave of companies to schedule its earnings report for the calendar quarter. While the typical metrics investors watch when the company announces its results (subscriber additions, revenue growth, and operating margin) will be important, there's one item in the report that may receive extra attention: any commentary from management about the company's plans to enter the digital advertising space. Many analysts and investors are hoping connected-TV (CTV) ads will become Netflix's next major growth driver.
