Netflix service was interrupted for Xbox users yesterday

If you are a Netflix subscriber and you tried to watch movies on your Xbox yesterday you probably didn’t have much luck. Netflix was having technical difficulties that affected Netflix subscribers that watched on the Xbox 360.

When you tried to view Netflix content on the Xbox, the video would look like it is starting okay, it would determine the quality then go right back to the Netflix menus. We contacted Netflix for comment but got a rather general response:

It was a blip that affected Xbox users, which we identified and fixed. – Steve Swasey, Vice President, Corporate Communications

The problem was still not fixed at midnight yesterday so I would assume that it was fixed early this morning. If you were affected we would like to know, comment below.
