From slack:

To do that, we’d need to uplift a small change to the `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories.options` pref.

This is the current default:
```{"api_key_pref":"extensions.pocket.oAuthConsumerKey","hidden":false,"provider_icon":"pocket","provider_name":"Pocket","read_more_endpoint":"https://getpocket.com/explore/trending?src=fx_new_tab","stories_endpoint":"https://getpocket.cdn.mozilla.net/v3/firefox/global-recs?version=3&consumer_key=$apiKey&locale_lang=en-US","stories_referrer":"https://getpocket.com/recommendations","topics_endpoint":"https://getpocket.cdn.mozilla.net/v3/firefox/trending-topics?version=2&consumer_key=$apiKey&locale_lang=en-US","show_spocs":false,"personalized":true}```

The new default would be:
```{"api_key_pref":"extensions.pocket.oAuthConsumerKey","hidden":false,"provider_icon":"pocket","provider_name":"Pocket","read_more_endpoint":"https://getpocket.com/explore/trending?src=fx_new_tab","stories_endpoint":"https://getpocket.cdn.mozilla.net/v3/firefox/global-recs?version=3&consumer_key=$apiKey&locale_lang=en-US&feed_variant=default","stories_referrer":"https://getpocket.com/recommendations","topics_endpoint":"https://getpocket.cdn.mozilla.net/v3/firefox/trending-topics?version=2&consumer_key=$apiKey&locale_lang=en-US","show_spocs":true,"personalized":true}```

let’s just make it clear in the bug that this enables sponsored content
but won’t show any until the server changes
