Customers freak out as Netflix mysteriously goes down across the globe
Dismayed subscribers were showed messages reading 'Netflix error: This title is not available' while trying to watch movies or TV series
Streaming giant Netflix went down on Monday afternoon across the globe. “We are aware of members having trouble streaming on all devices. We are investigating the issue and appreciate your patience,” the company tweeted at 2:57 pm PT.
Dismayed subscribers were showed messages reading 'Netflix error: This title is not available' while trying to watch movies or TV series.
Other message read, “Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again later.”
As usual, the outage caused around 125 million Netflix members to vent out their frustration online.
Subscribers took to social media after the service went down with dramatic tweets such as “I’m a mother separated from her children”.
Rob Toledo, editor-in-chief of streaming news site Exstreamist, called it the “biggest outage I’ve ever seen.”
Netflix has never faced such a problem before. Streaming websites Amazon Prime and Hulu have both suffered outages before. Netflix has repeatedly apologized for the inconvenience caused.
However, Netflix is now back and order has been restored to the universe.
