I don't know how they can compare adblockers without mentioning ABP.

It is probably - not necessarily - about their opt-out policy
that allows by default to pass through some not intrusive
and non aggressive advertisement, tested by some criteria.
Users are adviced to report ads that violate these criteria.

to cover expenses or effort.

there are ABP variants that removed this opt-out feature.
All that does not exclude the bribe possibility,

I wonder if they have a metric that tell them how many folks
just left their site instead of disabling their ad blocker?
p.s I love NetFlix. No ads (commercials)!
If ads are the thing you really can't stand, you might want to consider

You could always try it alongside FF and do a comparison with the most
"ad-annoying" sites you frequent.
It is always nice to have a second and third browser for those sites
