One of the busiest times of the year for TV entertainment is over the holiday period, and considering this extra demand it wouldn’t surprise some people that Netflix has experienced a Christmas Eve outage. The official Twitter account updated within the last hour, and explained in a tweet that Netflix are sorry for going down on Christmas Eve.
The timing is not good although their engineers are already fixing the Netflix problems today, but the Twitter account is yet to post another update. You can see the original tweet below that gave the first status update.
We have seen Netflix experience login problems at various times of the year, like in October 2 years ago, but these issues normally occur when demand is higher. Let us know if Netflix is down in your location, and if you’re having problems signing in share what part of the world you’re in below. Has the service been pretty reliable for you this year?
You can also track updates directly on Twitter via @Netflixhelps, which also updated within the last couple of hours explaining they’re “aware” that some members have problems streaming TV shows and movies. At the time of writing it seems that the issue is still not resolved for a number of PR readers.
This is really going to suck on a holiday if Netflix is not up soon, and you might have to resort to regular TV viewing for now. Feel free to share a comment if Netflix comes back up for you, and remember your location and how you’re accessing the service.
