There have been many instances over the past year where the Netflix Streaming service has gone down. I would like to keep a thread here available to the public to report these kinds of issues. The information will be then available here to act as sort of a central hub to let users know what services are down at any given time at Netflix. The thread will of’course be supported by users so please post a comment below when you think that the Netflix service is down. This is unofficial and this way, users will not be frantically searching the web for confirmation of service interruption. Remember you can always reach Netflix on Twitter at @Netflixhelps.
If you think the service is down or there is a problem, please post a comment below.
