Is your Netflix working? Netflix crashed for an hour on Monday, June 11, and subscribers were not happy. Netflix has fixed the issue.
On Monday, June 11, Netflix experienced a worldwide outage for about an hour. The length of time users were without Netflix likely varied by location.
According to a report from CNBC, Netflix claimed they fixed the issue after about one hour, but fans, obviously, were freaking out and trying to figure out what was wrong with the streaming service.
The company didn’t go into detail on what happened exactly. It doesn’t matter much now, of course. It was likely just a small headache for the streaming network and their, at times, rabid subscribers.
Based on the number of people who reached out to us during the outage, I can’t even imagine what it was like for customer service!
With technology, these type of things happen all the time. Sites crash, servers crash, and streaming is interrupted. Of course, when these things happen, fans are usually pretty upset they weren’t able to watch their shows and movies. We’ve all been there.
When these things happen, I just think how awesome it is we live in a time we can watch thousands of shows and movies within seconds of choosing a title. Movie fans from, like, the 80s and 90s would kill for that opportunity! I remember the days of going to the video store and picking out movies on VCR, and it was much more inconvenient than the streaming service crashing for an hour here and there every so often.
The streaming service is back up and running now, and the streaming network has a great lineup of new releases coming this week.
If you are still having problems with the streaming service, you should contact customer service. The easiest way to do so is with the chat feature or by calling.
