Netflix has hired its first outside lobbying firm since terminating all of its K Street help last year.
The online content provider has signed up Scott Corley, previously an aide to former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.), and his firm Corley Consulting, according to forms filed with the Senate.
Though the disclosure reports appeared this week, the firm has been working for Netflix since May. It’s dealing with a wide range of tech issues, including “video on-demand; broadband, telecommunications mergers; interconnection [and] net neutrality,” according to the reports.
"We periodically hire consultants to help us work on specific issues," a company spokeswoman told The Hill on Friday.
Now, with several tech battles brewing, it appears that Netflix is staffing back up -- if only potentially for a short while.
