Not only that, I can't get the website to load. Other sites load fine so I know I have a good internet connection.


Must be a major server crash

General reliability around 10pm+ EST seems to be in the toilet lately, sometimes its only certain device types or other times like now its everything.


I can trace all the way to them, these outages have never been a widespread internet problem in my experience, its on their end.

Upping rates is one way to cut load, lol

Same problem here. Apparently they are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it. Hopefully they'll give us a price break for the inconvenience. Here's to wishful thinking!

I'm in Ohio and mine stopped working here about an hour ago. It could've stopped working a little earlier, as I was watching a tv episode online and when it was over, the next episode wouldn't load.

@Curley, what device in addition to your blu ray player are you using? I had no problems streaming on the PS3 at 9pm Central...


There seem to be rolling blackouts, specific to certain types of devices each week, beginning as far back as May.

Netflix was out yesterday at 8pm on iPad, iPhone, Roku and PS3.

It came back around 8:45pm


Thank goodness for Amazon Prime.

I just have a Bluray player,(Panasonic DMP-BD65) I had trouble trying to stream a movie and fired up my computer to report it to Netflix and couldn't get the page to load. Simultaneously The Bluray player wouldn't respond.


It only lasted about 30 minutes, if that, but was unusual. It must take some time to reboot all the servers.

I saw the topic heading and figured it was another Netflix hater telling us the stock price tanked without mentioning the free-fall most of the market was in yesterday.



Netflix worked at my house yesterday evening.

Yeah, Amazon's servers going down affects Netflix. This last one took down Netflix, Foursquare, Reddit, and Quora (and I'm sure others). I can't really gather from the news sources if it only affected East Coast or not.


Amazon had a much worse outage back in April, if you recall.


Netflix usually issues a small refund when it goes down, but in this case I wonder if Netflix will issue a refund, given that technically it's not their fault (similar to how the PSN being offline for a month wasn't their fault).


Unfortunately, as things move more and more to the cloud and streaming services, this will happen. One of the (many) reasons my company is avoiding moving services to the cloud in the near future, and are sticking with on-premises hosting of all of our major applications (for example, we'd be dead in the water if we went to Office 360 or cloud-email and those servers went offline)

I have to ask. Why does everyone start a new thread every time there is a NetFlix hiccup? couldn't you search for and append to an existing one???

I guess Amazon's VOD must not be effected by this service.

Haha--yeah--I bet they have quite a bit of redundancy built into their service.

WTF !


Now my PS3 requires an update(when I tried to launch netflix I get the pop up message to update - no big deal) and my Roku2 Netflix is having issues.

*Amazon on Roku2 works fine as well as other services.


What a great time for Netflix to mess with their streaming service as people contemplate cancelling their service due to the new pricing structure.
