Netflix UK was one of the key sponsors of the magazine.
The spectator’s party was held last week. It was well- a timed London event. It came amid the stormy ouster of Boris Johnson as prime minister. Many prominent figures in Britain’s politicians attended the event.

Netflix is an organization that has been keen not to express a political agenda. It was a sponsorship. So the Spectator’s bash has raised some eyebrows.

Mostly the Editorship of the Spectator has been a step on the ladder to high office in the right-wing Conservative party with past editors.

It is clear to us that Netflix displayed promotions for many of its series and films as well at the event. But given the influential list of guests, it was probably a play at currying favor between the movers and shakers in the UK establishment.
Earlier Netflix sponsored events in the UK for fashion magazine Vogue, a center-right newspaper The Night commonplace, and the Oxford Literary competition.

Reed Hastings, the co-founder of Netflix has personally made key contributions to Democrat political campaigns. At the same time Sarandos, the co-CEO held a significant fundraiser for Obama, the former president.
